A Day Out...

I purchased this lovely specimen of a tape measure,
a little treasure...

The day after Miss M. returned to L.A., I had a day out to look forward to. With several ladies from Tolt Yarn & Wool we visited the "Fall Rug Show & Hook In", In other words, a rug hooking event. 

Now I am not at all familiar with rug hooking so was looking forward to observe a new fiber art. Here is a short description of what rug hooking is: Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The loops are pulled through the backing material by using a crochet-type hook mounted in a handle (usually wood) for leverage.

I have to admit that I don't think this is a creative art form for me, the end result is just not my cup of tea, but I can certainly appreciate the complexities of the design, the stitch lengths and heights, the directions and of course the color choices. 

Chatting with like minded creative women however certainly was the best part for me!  {smile}

I truly loved the goat rug, it made me smile...
