The last few days have been such fun – Saturday’s Mallorytown Fair was lovely – hot and sticky but lovely. Great artists and vendors (mmmm good baking which I bought to pass off as my OWN homemade at the hookin) and great music. It was fun to see people walking around with olde tyme candy, cuddle the rabbits that were there for judging and just hook and chat all day! ALTHOUGH wool and heat are not a good combination! If the lake were not so low (has dropped 2 feet this summer) I would have jumped right in when we got home.

The hookin yesterday was – as usual – wonderful. Amazing rugs and desserts and Captain Hiliner took some of the hookers for a paddle and swim (another hot sticky day!). Here are some of the rugs from show and tell:

  1. The Country Mouse




    You gals are a marvel-mouse inspiration to this wee mortal.


  2. Great photos and a wonderful day. The lake swim was especially memorable. Imagine having a partner that cruises around a gaggle of women giving informed comments on their rug hooking. You are blessed in many ways loretta!

  3. The rugs are all amazing. Looks like I missed a wonderful, inspiring day! Will try and NOT miss the next one. Hope you post pics of the carving, can’t wait to see.

  4. Love the different styles and colors of the rugs. I wish I had a group to hook with.
