Another Fiber Interest

This weekend my LQS had a rug hooking retreat. I don't hook rugs but my friend Melody does. She is a very talented knitter, stitcher and rug hooker. She comes from a long line of fiber artists. A couple of knitting friends and I dropped by to say hello and to see what she was working on. Here she is with one of her projects, Merrie Halloween. Visit Melody at her blog Wooley Thoughts and you can see where she was by the end of the retreat. This was Saturday night:
One of the LQS ladies was working on Merrie's boyfriend.
This is another project someone else was working on.
This type of rug hooking is something that I could be interested in. At this point though, I just don't have the time. I hope one day!

Where is that winning lottery ticket?

WOW Jackie - imagine my surprise to see all the pictures you took from the retreat on your blog - Thanks for including my Merrie and my big fat head ( couldn't you have left that off?) and thankfully my rug is covering my big fat body LOL - Rug hooking is awesome - I love it more all the time. I've been hooking about 10 years now - wish I had more finishes to show for that 10yrs but I do have a bunch of gorgeous wool and WIP's - I hope one day you'll join us - I could say just start with a small piece but you know the OGC motto "go big or go home baby" ! Enjoy Austin! Mel

Rug hooking looks like great fun! I will have to see if they ever have a class around here on it.
