SAUDER VILLAGE RUG HOOKING EXHIBIT
This past week, was Sauder Village's Rug Hooking Exhibit in Archbold Ohio. I can't tell you how wonderful it was! I went by myself and had the best time! The exhibits just get better every year. This year I actually remembered to bring my camera. I took quite a few pictures, but I only posted a few this evening. I went with the intention of not buying any more wool...HAH! That never happens..it's like saying a quilter will never buy any more fabric! Rebecca Erb was there and I bought a few pieces from her....she has the most amazing, buttery soft wool and her colors are gorgeous...no need to overdye..they are already perfect for hooking! Then I bought 4 fat quarters from a new vendor this year, "Among Friends". I beleive they are from Indiana and they had beautiful overdyed wool. You know how you have a color in your mind that you want to hook with and can never seem to find it or dye it right...well, I had been looking for a dark, teal-like blue to hook this adaptation of an antique rug..and found it at Among Friends. I bought three pieces...she called it "Blue Plate Special". I don't know if it was her combination, but it is THEEEEE most beautiful blue...cant' wait to hook with it!
