September Hook-in at Loch

What a wonderful day we had at Chris' home in the township of Loch. We missed Robyne and Lis but Jen came, as did Leanne. Leanne is a knitter and friend of Joy, and has at this stage not entered into the world of rug hooking, but the good thing is she loves coming (I think), so there's hope.
After a cuppa we got to business and talked about the upcoming Stitches and Craft show in October.

Chris is listening intently to Joy going through show rules and regulations

With that out of the way we continued on with our current projects but also added a new one for each of us. We started on personal hooked name tags for the S & C Show. It is quite a challenge to get your name into such a small space with some room to spare for embellishments. This was the first attempts at rug hooking for Jen, and she certainly did a great job. What a woman, and on such a small scale it is quite a challenge.

Joy is working on her beautiful 'Manet's Melon' Rug. Aren't the colours gorgeous?

 What a gorgeous little name tag. I'm sure you can tell who made this one,

 ...and this one. Jen is already an established craftist, so learned very quickly....

...and this one.

After a lovely lunch and lots of cuppas we finished the day at about 3PM, already looking forward to our next meeting in October, when Miriam will be visiting us from NSW. We are looking forward to that. Well, that's it for our September meeting. I hope you, as our followers enjoy the blog and our rug hooking adventures. Cheers till next time.
