Got Wool?

It was a beautiful Autumn Day! 

My friend Debbie and I enjoyed the festivities at the Wool Keepers rug show.
This annual event is held on the 2nd Wednesday in October at the Sons of Norway hall on
 Bothell Everett Highway, right across from Country Village.
It is awesome to have so many talented and creative people gathered to share their art!

  Beth was there with her Wicked Wool... 

I know her original designs and beautiful hand~dyed wool inspired everyone!

I can hardly wait to see the little green pumpkin with the spider on it finished in it's darling dimensional shape!

I am excited to say, the creative vibes will be humming at the Speckled Hen 
 Monday, October 18~
Beth will be on hand from 2 until 7:30 to demonsrate and answer questions.
Bring your current project or plan your next one...
Stay for awhile or stay all day...
Fill your creative well...

We'll have some treats (no tricks!) So mark your calendar and come on in! 
We can hardly wait to see you!

Blessings to you~

Rug Hooking!

It's that time of year again...
Harvest Time!
The shop is brimming with all the wonderful tricks and treats! 
I hope you have been enjoying the pretty days as much as I have. 
There is something about that tinge of crispness in the air
that makes me want to make soup and bake all things pumpkin! 
Speaking of pumpkin...
Beth has stocked us up with her delightful, original patterns & kits from her stash of Wicked Wool!
As always, her kits come with the pattern hand~drawn on Monk's Cloth, exquisite instructions and an ample amount of hand~dyed wool.  Doesn't this get you in the mood for a fall project?

For even more inspiration, mark your calendar for this fun annual event:
