Shell Wyoming Day of Rug Hooking

What an exciting day we had in Shell Wyoming Saturday! The weather was perfect for driving and we had our largest group EVER! We had a total of 7 for the day!
All the work we have done at the Festival in Thermopolis is paying off.  Kim was interested in hooking and drove to Shell to buy one of our beginner kits and learn to hook AND a woman who is working at the Shell Campground this summer came by to learn too. Two new hookers!!
 It was especially good to see Carol (left) who is not only struggling with cancer, but broke her hip. She has been through so much and it's so nice to see her still hooking.
 Faye came for the first time since last year. She brought her Stone House Runner and Patty brought hers. Isn't it amazing how similar and yet different they are!
Fay designed this beautiful stool cover. Hers is the shorter one. I wanted to copy hers and close as possible and Patty got creative with hers. They are so pretty together like that!
The original shape is from Cindy Gay's Ikea Stool Course.

We didn't get pictures of what everyone was working on but the day was filled with teaching, laughter, and fun.

There is one extra day added to our schedule with one more day of hooking in Shell on September 29th.
