RVBB 35TH ANNIVERSARY HOOKIN…

Our guild (Rideau Valley Boots and Baskets) is celebrating its 35th anniversary and this Thursday is our open hookin. We have over 100 people registered to come – how wonderful is that! We will have 6 vendors, a rug display, door prizes (yippee) and snacks. Should be a fun fun day and oh my goodness, right afterwards I am leaving for our LAC SAM rughooking retreat weekend. I hope to come home with a completed rug and unfortunately probably 5 extra pounds! But I am sooooo excited!!!! Here is the pattern I will be working on (well firstttt I have to finish my old and dirty recycled geometric rug – only 5 5-inch blocks left to do, balance of border and show binding). This is one of the Karla Gerard patterns I carry called Neighbours and this is how Jill is hooking hers (soooooo want her rug!): Image 4 I had all my wool scraps picked out and because they were hmmm too bright! and did not all relate well I over dyed them to dirty them up a bit and marry the colours. So my version will be a little dirtier than Jill’s but I know it is going to be fun fun fun to work on… So back to packing up for the hookin where I will be one of the 6 vendors!  Hope to see some of you there.

    Hi Loretta. I have missed you the last 2 times you were at the quilt shop I was having you do me the circular and oval shaped rug I was wondering if you still had it and if I could get it. Where is the guild open house I could come there if it’s okay
