The Omaha Hook-In will be coming up Friday October 2 from 9-4 at St Robert Bellarmine Church, 120 and Pacific. As you know, I no longer 'do' hook-ins, but this should be a fun one to attend. After the hook-in, you are all invited to the store for a fun weekend of hooking. We will hook until 10pm on Friday night and then start up again on Saturday from 9 to 6. There will be food, a drawing for $100 Gift Certificate from The Rug Hooking Store and much more.
I have been drawing up fun fall patterns that will be available at our special hook-in weekend. I will show the first two today and will show more tomorrow. There will be about 8 of these small, easy to complete patterns. I have hooked up 5 of them, so far, and they go quickly.
The top pattern is called LONG LEAN JACK. The pattern is 12x15. I picked a poisony green, mustard gold, violet, orange and black for the striped background. It went so quickly, I almost completed it during 3 episodes of Breaking Bad, my latest binge watching addiction. I am thinking I will make him into a pillow, perfect for Halloween decorating.
The bottom pattern is 15x15 and I call it SIMPLY SUNFLOWER. This was fun to hook! I used three golds of very different values. The center on the sunflower was done with a gold that was over dyed over a dark black and white texture. I alternated that with a rich golden brown, in a higglety pigglety style to get the chunky look of the sunflower center.
These patterns will be $48 each. I have already started a list for people who want a pattern or patterns. I will have them all ready by our hook-in weekend event on Oct 2 and 3. Call or write to order! Janice at 402-359-2699 or firstname.lastname@example.org
