On Wednesday the social meeting of rug hookers living in the Maryland, Pennsylvania and West Virginia area got together for their monthly (every six week or as the mood strickes) meeting.. It was at the home of Linda V. and she had decorated her home the day before we were to come.
This is the beautiful tree in her living room. Sorry I didn't get a picture of the lovely nativity scene next to it. Since it is such a busy time of the year only seven of us were able to attend. There are 12 to 15 members of this group. We come as we can and offer to host as we can. It is a very informal group, however a congenial group of hookers.
Here is Barb hard at work on the piece that she is finishing for the Christmas swap on Saturday.

This is our hostess Linda sitting at her piano in the living room of her lovely home.

This picture and the one following are of an item that Jill bought and brought to show us because it is not only novel but utilizes hooking. Pay close attention to the tail of the turkey and the body of the turkey is a wool plaid.

A very innovative use of hooking and of the plaid material. The whole turkey is mounted on a candle holder.
Here is Jill's scroll piece still in the "works" but a lovely piece in progress.

This piece if Barb's also a work in progress.

Beth "hard at work" on her swap piece. This is an interesting piece with a winter scene of a church surrounded by trees.

Linda is working on this sweet quilt wall hanging for a grandchild. It is really a charming piece and the colors are beautiful.
A really nice time was had by all. Our hostess, Linda, had fixed us a lovely luncheon and several of the participants had brought desserts. We all had a wonderful before Christmas hook-in. It is a wonderful time of year to get together with friends and just relax and enjoy each other. After all, celebrating Christ's brithday, is partly about good fellowship and loving each other as He did.
On final note that I can't help leaving you with. It was another rainy day and who wants to get out of bed when it rains?
I hope each and every one has happy experiences doing their Christmas shopping. Happy mall hopping to each and every one.

Looks like you had a good day - rain and all - Always inspiring to get together with a group. That Eloise is too funny and on a dreary day i don't blame her a bit!
