Without Further Ado......My First Hook-In!

(Please forgive me.  I am a little on the late side in posting this.  I got back home last Wed. but we have had lots of problems with our internet and computers.  So, to say the least, I am just now getting this done.  I had it mostly typed up and ready to go but I was planning on showing you how my piece turned out.  Unfortunately, that will have to wait as well because I can't find my camera cord and the only computer that is currently working (for now) won't take my SD card!  Grrrrrr!!!  So I will get that up just as soon as I can.  Thanks for understanding.)

So I went to my first hook-in this weekend with my sister Vicki.  There were rug hookers and wool everywhere you looked!!  It was kind of crazy but I had a great time.  My sister taught one of the four classes and I got to participate in that class.  Vicki was teaching needle felting (to be used on hooked rugs) while the rest were teaching about actual rug hooking.  Well since I don't do rug hooking, I just did my needle felting on a piece of wool fabric that isn't appropriate for rug hooking.  I love the way it turned out!!

There were three other ladies taking the class as well.  They were all so very nice to me.  They definitely made me feel very welcome and at ease.  This first picture is of me working on my project.  The second one is of I.T. (short for Itinia) working on hers.  She was so funny!  The third one is of Linda (in the pink) and Leslie (in the blue).  They were all such sweeties!

Here are the ladies with their finished projects.  Well, they were finished with the felting part anyways.  They still have to hook the rest of the rug.  Mine is still in the works at this point.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend too!  I know I did!  XD
