Well, yesterday was the first day of spring and of course it is snowing today! Our little raccoon who is always a harbinger of spring (well not the same raccoon every year!) has been hanging around eating whatever I can find in the cupboards that is old and stale! So at least I am getting a little spring cleaning done and at the same time feeding our little fellow. But with snow again today we may not see him for a few days.

Last Saturday I was invited to vend at the Woodstock Hookin put on by the Oxwood Rughookers. It was a fun day with a lot of hookers joining in. Got to visit with friends, see the beautiful show and tell and oh oh – spend! I think I bought from almost every vendor 🙂 Gord played photographer so I have a few pictures to share. Unfortunately, I did not get names or designers of patterns… although I do know a few of the designs were Martina Lesar’s and Deanne Fitzpatrick. Hope you enjoy the show…

    Great,, loretta and gord ,,,, great pictures!!! Itcwas fun chatting with u both,,,, have a great spring and summer,,,,,

  2. Thank you both for the pictures … next best thing to being there. Again, I was inspired. I am making myself a Round The World flannel lap quilt. What better mate than a rug hooked pillow in matching colours?

  3. wow these are great photos from the Oxwood hook in. There are a significant number of the rugs photographed from JJ Ruggers in Paris. All the nests are from a project that JJ’s did based on the inspiration of Holly O’s art (check her web page). The “all you need is love” is a graffiti designed and hooked by Cheryl Krug-Wiltse from JJ’s. “The Bees Knees” is designed and hooked by Pam Watkins also of JJ’s. Thanks for posting.
