GLENGARRY WAS LOVELY…

Despite the heat and humidity there was a wonderful turnout for the quilt and rug and fibre show at the Glengarry Pioneer Museum. People came from Ottawa, Montreal, Kingston etc. for the display and demos. A frame was set up outdoors where novices could try rughooking which generated a lot of excitement and interest. All in all a wonderful weekend – plus!!!! I got to stay with Terri at her beautiful old log home filllllled with antiques and folk art. We were served delicious hamburgers and des hotdog steame (a Quebec delicacy!) for dinner and crepes for breakfast. NOTHING OUT OF A BOX! We took a tour of the property Sunday morning before heading for the museum and I spied an entire barn fullllllllll of treasures! May have to wrangle a reinvite – on a coooooler day! So a few pix of the show and displays:HPIM5535

A couple of people were asking last week about the pattern for the punkin pocket. Sandi thinks it came from www.amongfriendswoolydesigns.com. I did try emailing as I did not see the pattern on the website but have not heard back yet.

Tomorrow I am heading to Stitch by Stitch again for the morning. Happy Canada Day to you all and for our American friends Happy 4th of July (in advance)…

  5. Hi Loretta – love the rugs, love the pictures and I thank you for that – once I get moved I plan on moving forward with my rug hooking. One of the rugs – The winterwonderland and it was designed by you, do you sell the kit???????I need to take a picture of the pumpkin kit that I have finished after I took my class with you. There’s so much to learn yet – take care – stay cool and have a wonderful week
