A Successful Hook In!

We had a great day at the Peconic Ruggers hook in on Saturday. It was a full house -- we were packed to the gills! Members from LIGRA joined us, as did many of our own members who hadn't shown their faces for quite a while. Barbara and Judy did a tremendous job running their first group gathering, with the help of Jennifer, who supplied us with lots of sweet treats.

I have to thank Judy, Barbara, Jennifer and the entire guild for the very generous gift certificate to Rebecca Erb's The Wool Studio. If you don't know Rebecca's wool - lots of textures and tweeds, designed by her and made in Europe -- you really need to take a look. Like candy, they are hard to resist! Thank you, ladies!

I thoroughly enjoyed my first hook in as a non-board member -- although, as ususal, I talked a lot and hardly hooked. I sold some patterns and Barb sold some wool. I won a great Southern Living Cookbook as a door prize, too. All in all, a profitable day!

Peconic Ruggers Hook In

The Peconic Ruggers (my guild here on the East End of Long Island) is having their annual hook in this Saturday, February 16, 2008, 10 Am to 3 PM, at The Grange, Sound Avenue, Riverhead. Our sister guild from up the island (that's East End Speak for anything west of Riverhead) LIGRA (Long Island Guild of Rug Hooking Artists) have been invited. Several members will be selling their wares: Judy Lambros (who is the guild's new co-president with Barbara Blossey-Chuvalas) of 3 Bags Full, Jennifer of Bumble Bee Primitives will have fabulous frames and kits, and, of course, Barb and I will be their with Barb's hand-dyed wool and my patterns. Come and visit!

It's a cold day here in Greenport. The wind has been blowing fiercely since last night and the thermometer has plunged . . . Stay warm and cozy today!

A Fresh Crop of Hand-Dyed Wool

Barb has been hard at work dyeing wool. Check out her listings on ebay under Hallowed Hill Primitives and on etsy under Thimblefolk.

She'll also have some new creations on The Primitive Gathering come February 15. Be sure to check it out.

I have nothing to share. I'm doing my tax stuff. Yuck.
