Button Basket by Susan Quicksall at Holly Hill Designs is the rug I choose to work on while I'm there. I felt that it had several lessons for me to learn in that particular pattern, plus I just love the design.
These are the colors I picked and dyed for the rug. I have several different blacks for the background. I'm a little concerned about the basket but I can always pick out colors later on and dye them. I just hope I have enough. I'm not sure how much hooking I will get done while we are there. I'm guessing a lot.
One of the events I can't wait to see is the Rug Show. Being in such a remote area for hookers, I've never been exposed to too many hooked rugs. It will be so nice to see several at once.
Being able to make more hooking friends will be great too. Patty and I are pretty limited. Patty has been teaching hooking in Shell, WY. She's a great teacher and we really enjoy each others company so this trip is going to be a BLAST!
