Sure thought Spring was here for a bit – but that’s all we got was ‘a bit’ – several nice days of beautiful weather when you could even have some windows opened a bit as well – but nope, this morning there’s lots of snow on the ground! But then I guess just because Spring came just a few short days ago, the weather guru didn’t get the message!!
Now I guess I had better start HOOKING!!!
If you remember I started having a ‘gathering’ here the first and third Tuesday of each month.
Well the actual first one was last Tuesday and there were 5 of us. I know in April there will be more because the ones who couldn’t make it this time said they would be here…yeahhhh!
We had a fun time getting to know each other by taking a turn around the table telling about ourselves – we enjoyed that a lot. We saw we all had a lot in common, not just the love of wool and stitching.
Then this past Thursday Doug and I took a drive up to Menasha, WI to Primitive Gatherings – been told a lot about this place and had to see it for myself. It’s basically a fabric shop full of wool and homespuns and other fabrics and patterns galore!
I also bought some beautiful Turquoise over dyed wool to make this beautiful Penny Rug. I took a picture of it but for some reason the wools didn’t show up true. But they are almost exactly as in the picture.
I bought the pattern from Lake View Primitives
I was going to put some pictures on from around the house but this post is long enough! Next time !!
Blessings to all and enjoy your week doing whatever it is you do.
