Wool - more wool and Fun!

Last Thursday I went to the CREAM CITY RUG HOOK-IN in Milwaukee and enjoyed it so much - I know I will go to next years for sure.
My self, Kathleen Woodbury, Betty Pearce and her sister Karen Duncklee
were at the same table so it made the event even more special and
fun sitting with people you know.

I took several trips through  all the rooms with the vendors and just couldn't get
enough of all that wool and patterns!  It did overtake me and I bought way more
than I probably should have but it was so much fun!!!
We had treats throughout the
day, there were drawings all day long
and a wonderful box lunch was catered in.

The pictures were taken early on just after I arrived so it looks like there aren't many there but there were approx. 200 and it was spread out in 5 different rooms.

I did purchase some wool - well, lots of wool and a very large pattern to hook from Red Barn Rugs.  If I ever do get to it and 'finish it', it will hopefully go above the fireplace.
 The colors are so rich.

It was nearing the end of the event and my number was drawn for a door prize!!!
The basket had 1/4 yard of wool, hooked heart pillow and a wool flower pin.

There were several ladies that brought their finished work to be voted on...this was one of the winners.  It was incredible up close...looked just like a painting. The detail was awesome.

We have a mama Robin that built her nest in the corner of our pickets right at the driveway - we have to disturb her every now and then if we get out of the car in the driveway instead of the garage. Silly thing has no protection from the rain (which it did for 4 days!)

I have a few new punch needle designs punched - still need to tweak the sheep one - I think I am taking out the blue in the flowers and punch them white like dandelions gone to seed.
They will go to the show as well.
The patterns will go on my sites soon.

Today I am working on cutting pennies for more penny rugs for the show - I guess that's what will keep me busy for the next few month getting things made up.

That's it for this week - hope to have more next week!
Thanks for visiting!
