Primitive Hooked Rugs and other goodies...

Hi all! We're back from the Haycreek Festival. We had a great time with a great crowd--though Saturday was rained out-a total wash! Thanks Hanna..LOL. It didn't seem to slow anyone down on Sunday though. Daughter Jan had a great show and has already been contacted by some who simply picked up her card. One of my favorite parts of the Festival is the Early American Crafts demonstrations up on the hill, where the vendors dress in colonial garb and demonstrate as well as sell. Kim Frey, of Thistle Dew Mercantile was there again this year with her wonderful Scherenschnitte. There were fewer hooked rugs this year but an increase in penny rugs. I learned to card wool and am now actively looking for some hand cards. The food was great as usual and of course I ate too much. Now its time to get back to work. All of the things I put off until after the show are piling up around me. The weather is beautiful and there are no excuses.....but nothing is getting done.
Let me know if you have any tricks to motivate me!
