January Hooking

Three of us, Patty, Carol, and I, met up in Shell Wyoming earlier this month for a fun filled day of hooking. Patty was on her Christmas vacation from bus driving so we thought it was the perfect time to hook for a day. Carol and I were the only two at the Library this month but it was still a really fun time.

The big news of the month is that Patty got her Lincoln bag back from the leather place. It has leather gussets, leather around the top, leather handles, and a sturdy lining with pockets.
Patty's bag is absolutely stunning! I am going to hook mine after I finish my lion and lamb rug. I'm ready for a geometric and since I'm used to a size 4 cut that I'm using in the Lion and Lamb it seems like a good time to hook it. But after that... I'm going to an 8!

 I have finished my grass since I took this picture at the library. I am pretty happy with how it has turned out so far. I'm so happy to be finished with the animals.

Carol finished the edge of her landscape rug but it blends into the carpet at the library so it's hard to see. I absolutely love how it turned out.

Carol started this small pattern. She hasn't decided what it is going to be when finished. A pillow, a chair pad, we will have to wait and see.

Patty this picture of her cups when we hooked in Shell, WY. She has since finished the background. The cut she hooked on the far left cup has the most amazing wool in it. When I told her how wonderful it was she informed me it was one she bought from me! I over-dyed a plaid and didn't think I'd ever use it. Now I'm trying to remember what I over-dyed it with so I can do it again. You know what they say, the wool is always prettier in someone else's rug. Okay, so it's grass and a fence, but you get the idea.
