Hooking fun in Kinderhook

Had a great time in Kinderhook at their March hook-in. The organizer of the show is Barbara MacCormack. She does a great job hosting this event. Wonderful food, giveaways, raffles, lots of vendors, and the perfect location. Their next hook-in is May 16th. Hopefully, I'll be back from Ireland by then.

Saw lots of wonderful rugs. In particular, there was a hooker who brought in a finished cube ottoman. She had purchased the cube from Kim Nixon, but she created the pattern herself. The background was a purple/black mottled mix, with lots of bright colors for the main motifs. One side had a mermaid with fish and sea plants on it. The colors were perfect, and as I love bright shades, it was a sight to behold. If only I had remembered my camera. As soon as I walked in the door, I realized I had left it home. Drat!

As soon as I catalog the leftover wool from the show back into my ecrater listings, I'll be offering a nice week-long sale. Watch for it soon.
