So I have come to the conclusion that mentioning my plans creates bad vibes! Yesterday morning I was all set for the Pre Plowing Match show this weekend – had bags packed (or semi). And then hmmmm fate decided it was not meant to be. So, alas, I will not be attending the show this weekend as a vendor. Do I dare say anything more about upcoming shows ūüôā

However, to destress a bit this morning, I spent a good hour on the dock with my hooking and holy cow 1/2 of the background on my piece is done! Is that work therapy or what!!!

In the meantime, I have set up a beginner class in Primitive Rughooking at the Textile Museum in Almonte on September 18 from 11 – 3. So if you know of anyone who might be interested in learning primitive rughooking send them to the lovely town of Almonte! The town and textile museum themselves are worth the trip.(oh oh have I just jinxed the class???)…

Trish just sent me pix of her beautiful celtic pillows (patterns by Christine Little for every letter of the alphabet are available from Encompassing Design in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia)…

  2. Thanks so much for sending out your emails. ¬†As I live in Tennessee there is little chance of me attending, ¬†I do enjoy seeing your beautiful work.¬† I would love to have the pattern for the “H” pillow. ¬†Do you sell patterns? ¬†If so I would love to took it. ¬†Many thanks. ¬†Changed plans do happen! Best wishes,Mary B. Hines


    I am possibly interested in the Primitive Rug Hooking Class at the Almonte Textile Museum. How would I register for the class? What is the cost? What supplies would I need to bring?

    I really enjoy receiving your emails, and all the photos of everyone’s beautiful rugs that they have hooked. I would perhaps like to go to some of the “hook ins” that I read about in you posts, if possible. How do I find out when and where they are?
