Saturday, Dulcy and I drove to Warsaw, Missouri to attend the Truman Lake Rug Show and Hook-In.
In my opinion, it’s one of the best hook-ins in our area! Patty Wallace and her crew from Saltbox Primitive Woolens really do a 1st class operation!
Beautiful rugs on display and gobs of top notch vendors!
As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Here are a few of MY favorite rugs from the show!!
This was a really LARGE rug…..love how whimsical it is and the happy colors!
I just love nature rugs and I thought the sky in this was really pretty.
The picture just doesn’t do this rug justice….the colors were perfectly vintage hued….sweet!
Carolyn Snider’s rug….I can pick out her work a mile away…..always has that old look to it!
Another one of Carolyn’s rugs….isn’t it funny how after you’ve hooked with someone for years, you
just KNOW their work?!
Love this rug….it’s so “Frank Lloyd Wright”!!
My grandparent’s raised pigs, and as a girl, I had a pig collection, so of course this one caught my eye!
I know there must be a story behind this rug….
I had a collie as a girl, so this one is extra sweet in my eyes!
Just look at that background…..beautiful!
This was another BIG whimsical rug!!
As I said, there were many wonderful vendors!!
Everything from handspun yarns…..
Wonderful wools from Nola…..who brought her President Rugs!!
There were socks knitted from an antique sock knitting machine….
All of this was in a setting where you could look out the windows as you were shopping,
eating, or hooking and see the beautiful lake…
Dulcy and I took a little time away and went down to the lake to paint and sketch a bit….
I didn’t get any hooking done, but I did stitch the rest of my moose rug and have it finally
finished into a pillow…..I’ll share that with you soon!
Enjoy what’s left of your weekend and thanks for stopping by.
