A Hooking We Will go!

Woo Hoo!!!  I got a night out last night and guess what I did!?!  I went hooking!  Of course, Mr. Fix It had to be a smarty pants and ask me what corner I was going to be on, hmpffff!

My sister-in-law, Jeanine, came and picked me up and off we went!  Here she is checking out wool possibilities for the background of her newest project.  Look at that beautiful rug she is standing on.  It was made by her BF of thirty some years, Lori.  Lori got Jeanine into hooking and Jeanine got me into hooking!

This is Lori and the Hook-in was at her lovely home in the country.  Look at all that gorgeous wool for sale behind her!

More yummy goodies.  Lori dyes as well as teaches.  

Isn't this prim doll adorable!

 I'm a horse lover and I LOVE this rug that Lori did!!  Each horse is different.  I don't think I could ever take on a challenge like that!

 I don't know this lady's name but the rug she was working on is beautiful!

I think I saved the best picture for last!  Look at that Bundt cake!  I was good and didn't blow my diet though.  What I loved the best is the Happy Kitchen rug framed in barnwood!!   If only I could have figured how to sneak it out of the house under my jacket!!  Thanks Jeanine for getting me out, your the best.


  1. I love that wool! So pretty. I have tried hooking several times and just can't seem to get the hang of it. Glad you got a night out!

  2. Mr Fix It is funny! Your hostess wool collection is amazing. I would have had a harder time resisting that wool than the cake. Glad you had fun, you deserved a night out.

  3. Oh my, that wool is so pretty and so neatly stored on the shelf. I don't think that I could have gotten out of there without spending a small fortune.

    Too funny about Mr Fix It's comment. Leave it to a man to come out with such comment. Ha,ha.

    The cake does look tempting but I'm with Kim. The wool is even more tempting. JB

  4. Mr. Fix It makes the same comment my husband makes when i go to my hook-in's! He thinks he's funny - he also says we are "cult" members! LOL So happy you got out and got to do something fun and inspiring! The house full of wool and cake looked great!

  5. Oh MY! That horse rug is wonderful!!
    Don't you just love these guys and their comments! LOL! It's fun to get them going!!
    You are very fortunate to have a house of wool like that near you! I LOVE the way she has it all displayed! A hooker's dream!!
    Glad you got a night out and I bet it felt real good!!

    Pug hugs :)

  7. The hooking is all just beautiful! What a lovely art form! I'm glad you went out and had fun. :)

    I think I put on a few pounds just from looking at that cake!

  8. I agree... that prim doll is SO cute... she'd fit right in with the two I have... Love your blog!

  9. I do think my husband would have said just about the same thing as yours

    What gorgeous wools and you all have some beautiful rugs.



I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
