The weather was perfect on Saturday for the hook-in at Kingwood Center. I saw so many wonderful friends and make a couple of new ones too. I also missed a few that I was hoping to see, but that happens. I did manage to hook a little bit, but not too much because of all the visiting, shopping, and eating. I has to leave early to attend a couple of graduation parties, which I hated to do. Once I saw how much the grads were glad my husband and I came it was all worth it though. This year for the rug show, they wanted to see entries of first rugs. I took mine which was American Floral by Need'l Love. I really like their patterns and I have done a lot of their wool applique in the past. I haven't taken an update picture of the big rug since I really only added a little more background to it. I did pick up some beautiful yarn for whipping the edges of my rugs. That's right folks...I am going to get my binding caught up this year if it kills me. I have resolved to not start another rug in 2011 until I have my binding under control. I haven't counted how many rugs that means yet, but I will let you know. The rug pictured here is actually done, but I was not happy with the way the binding turned out, so I have never done it again. That means I have about nine years of catching up to do ( shutter).
