July's Hook-In in Shell

For the month of July we hooked at the Shell Church in Shell, WY. Debra and I rode together from Cody and it was a beautiful day to travel.  The ride to Shell is always such a treat which is usually filled with wild horses and antelope. We didn't get to see the wild horses this trip but the antelope didn't disappoint us.

 Carol finished her Covered Bridge. It will hang in her new house, which we got a tour of. She lives right outside of Shell now. She has a beautiful view of the Bighorn Mountains. Wait until you see her next project. A turkey buzzard! I can't wait!
 Debra is working on her Close Enough for Jazz rug. Her husband is a drummer so I'm guessing he will love this when it's finished. The navy background is a sparkle wool which is Perfect for Jazz!
 I was almost finished binding my I've Got You My Pretty from The Old Tattered Flag. I used an 8 1/2 cut so it worked up rather quickly. I'm on a Halloween kick lately. Wait until you see my other two projects.
And Patty is really moving along with her Boston by Visions of Ewe, Ann Bond rug. I am so in love with her colors. She has such a great eye for color!

It was a day full of laughter and conversation with such good friends. We are so blessed to have such a great group in such a remote area.
