If anyone has ever had the pleasant experience of hooking with Deanne Fitzpatrick then you know what a blessing it is to you. I purchased this pattern from her to make for our parents for their anniversary this year. keeping with Deanne's style of hooking I just started this Mon night and hope to be done with it this week. I love hooking this style. What a great way of using up all your noodles. It is a satisfying feeling to look at your noodle baskets from rugs gone by and see that the supply is dwindling. Sometimes we get so overwhelmed by the growing heaps of noodles. We tell ourselves that SOON we will do a scrappy rug and get rid of some of them. That day never seems to come around as we find yet another cool pattern to dive into.
I have had the honor of hooking with Deanne at her studio in Amherst, Nova Scotia twice now. A relaxing experience to say the least! Laura and I went together this last time so it made it all the better.I love to hook with my sister! She has lived so far away for so many years that I am thrilled that she is back in OH to hook and sip coffee. We also took a group from the Lorain County Hookcrafters there and stayed in an old railroad cottage close to the water. Be sure to check our Deanne's blog and website. I can hear her voice reading to us in class as I read her "diary" on her blog. She is a kindred spirit that I hope to hook with again soon.
So back to hooking on yet another blustery day-the third snow day this week for the kids. We may be going to school in June this year. Hook on, Katie
