At our regular monthly hook-in meeting on St. Patrick's Day, I had invited a special guest. Anne Jenkins, who is a local wool dyer extraordinaire, had agreed to to dye a large batch of wool so that we could all purchase whatever we might need to add to our stashes. I was able to snap only one picture while Anne was just beginning to remove it all from their bins before I succumbed. I began gathering those that I needed to fill empty places in my wool closet and held them tightly.
And then a huge hoard of spring wool locusts began arriving and devouring the goods.
Pesky buggars those spring wool locusts. They buzzed around and around the wools trying to decide which to choose and make their prey.
After a while, things calmed down and the locusts took their seats and began work on their projects they had brought, and would only occasionally get up from their seat to walk to the back room "just to see if there was any wool left".....or to see if " there is just one more of this particular color because they might need it". ( you may have heard some of these rationalization phrases at your hook-ins or rug camps as well).
Lovely projects from our lovely gals:
It was also great to see so many new faces ...several ladies who had contacted me via email earlier in the month were welcomed as newcomers to our group. Our next scheduled meeting is the 3rd Saturday , April 21st. Please join us if you are in the area !
