Goodies Galore!

Having a fun time getting out of the house more and enjoying the opportunity to visit with friends and see quilts and WOOL! Yesterday I ventured out to Lancaster, PA for the Woolright's Hook-In! I waited too long to decide to go, so I missed out on reserving a seat to actually sit and hook... soooo, poor ol' me was forced to shop the vendors! I found some loverly woolens at Rebecca Erb's booth.... and then some cute patterns at Handmaiden's Designs... and then found more wool, a redware mug and a pattern by Annetique's at the Grant Street Woolwork's both! I found a happy Joanne and Kathy at the Grant Street Woolwork's booth too! Yes... I brought along my camera... but was having too much fun to remember to take pics! So, You'll have to settle for this one pic of my goodies that I brought home... Wool, patterns, mug...

You'll also see an antique glass mason jar fill with Cadbury mini eggs and some  mini Easter ornaments for my wool feather tree... those are from Joanne! She mailed them to me last week... along with some Peeps (not in pic, because I ate them already)! It sure is nice to get a surprise in the mail... thank you so much, Joanne!

I also have some progress on the Antique Coverlet pattern I'm hooking... I hope to get more hooked today...

I'm hooking this rug a long with Pam (no blog)... she lives in DE, so we are kind of having a long distance hook-in... Pam's much quicker than I am... she's finished already... and even started another... lol!

So, that about sums it up for now! I'm looking forward to Spring... and being able to hook and stitch outdoors in the sunshine! Of course... I'm also looking forward to more road trips... radio shows, flea markets, classic car cruises... golf... barbeques... vacations... and sunshine! :-)

We've all been gifted just one life... LIVE IT HAPPY!

  2. HOw much fun, Sharon! I bring a rug to hook at hook in's, but most of my time is spent visiting and shopping. That's where you can get all the good wool! sounds like a really nice get together..I would love to go back to PA to visit Grant Street Wool. Glad you're getting out of the house.
