November Hook-in

We had a small group meet at the Library for a very fun day of hooking. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful place to meet. 

 I brought a chicken I finished. The colors in the photo aren't quite right but you get the idea. I haven't decided if I want a chair pad (just finish the edge) or a chair cushion (stuffing and wool fringe outside).
 I brought my completed Padula Pomegranates. I have decided to hang it in the guest room instead of putting it on the floor. White rugs aren't a smart move in my household.
 Carol has more done on her Covered Bridge. It is turning out so beautiful!
 Before Rug School I was working on this New England Berry Tree. After I finished the Pomegranate rug I finished the background of this one. I was using the Flax and Linen wool for the background but decided it needed a little extra umph so I overdyed some of it just a tiny bit darker. Then I pulled a little bit out now and then and added the darker and finished using both. I'm so in love with this rug.
 Patty had done more on her Sunflowers. I absolutely love how it is turning out.
Now I am working on my Floral rug from Maggie Bonanomi. I thought I'd choose something a little different like teal leaves. I'm really loving how it is coming out. 

We are so lucky to have such a great group. God has certainly blessed us!


  1. Beautiful rugs--None of mine are on the floor. So nice your group has a meeting place and space to get together and spend the day doing something you love

  2. All beautiful rugs! Carol's rug has a beautiful dimension to it. She has captured the art of a real landscape with the big tree forward and the covered bridge and trees receding into the background. I'm impressed!

  3. Wow! Love the one designed by Maggie but they are all beautiful!
