I Lovvvveee converting people to rughooking. It is so exciting to watch someone who picks up a hook and becomes addicted. This past summer my friend Suzanne asked if I would teach her two granddaughters (aged 6) and their mother to hook. Wellllllll I had never taught a 6 year old but oh my it was fun. We drew out their patterns, they picked their wool and away they went. Mom was instantly a convert as well. I recently received pix of their finished projects and a request from Mom to make up a kit for her next project – the girls are working on ideas for their next hooked pieces as well. Here are pix of their finished pieces:

Image 4Today is our Hooker Holiday Party – food, fun and oh my beating heart – hand made ornie and gift exchange!!!! As I worked on 11 ornies for the exchange I was cursing the person who suggested we should do this (blush – was that me?) but ohhhh today I am sooooo excited. This is always one of my favourite days in December. Tomorrow I hope to post pix of presents and ornies (I know you are all green with envy!)…
