was a fun day this past Saturday. Unfortunately, a couple of our vendors could not be there but the rooms were hopping and we were all busy busy busy in the morning and in the afternoon got a little bit of a breather that allowed us to shop!
Nancy sent me the following story about a piece she just finished hooking:
“Here is the finished bench, complete with legs. A Rughooking pattern by Carol Shewan created, with permission, from a painting by AJ Van Dries (and available from Carol). The painting was called Songs of New Beginnings. I did the bench for my daughter-in-law. The bench had belonged to her late mother & the red wool I used was from her mom’s skirt, so a piece with memories.”
For those of you who speak French there is a lovely article on the history of rughooking in Quebec which mentions not only famous rughookers from the past but ALSO some of todays well known Quebec hookers!

Tomorrow morning I will again be at Stitch by Stitch with wool and kits and cutters. Hope to see you there…
