These tiny yellow crocus's are truly beautiful!
My daughter Joan is a teddy bear maker. She had arranged an appointment with the manager of The Inn Boonsboro Gift Shop for Monday morning. She packed up 4 bears and several other fiber arts and together we headed to Boonsboro. I took two rugs as I was also interested in this gift shop. Her bears were a hit with the manager as well as my rugs. I thought you might like to see her bears. They are adorable, each has a name, and their facial expressions are all different.
These bears are all articulated and great fun to play with and to look at. So much for the beautiful world.Now for the small world. On Saturday I attended the monthly meeting of the Hand and Heart ATHA guild meeting. I am ever amazed at the interest in rug hooking among the young women of this area. The are enthused and creative. We had 3 new attendees at this meeting. One of the gals was someone that I had worked with more than twenty years ago. Of course, we have both changed. When I knew her long ago she was in her twenties, and newly married. Now a matured lady with several children and into the hobbies of many housewives. We talked a bit and tried to catch up but it really was not the proper place to do so, so we are going to try to get together and hook and catch up.
The rug for this blog is a half round designed by Pearl McGown and hooked by me some time ago. It is "Strawberry Basket," - all wool cut by hand about a size 5 or 6 width. It was great fun to do. I hope you like it.
You can see this rug at The Inn Boonsboro Gift Shop.
In closing, I want to send my love and prayers to my friend Kathy. May all of your shingles in the future be upon you roof!!
