Road Trip!

I’ll start with Saturday and go backwards! Tammy and I hit the road early Saturday morning and headed North to Warsaw, MO to the hook in at Saltbox Primitive Woolens. Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 191

Patty Wallace is the owner, and let me tell you, those girls know how to put on a hook in! This is Patty, ringing her little cow bell to get our attention. She said it gives her POWER!

I finally got to meet my kindred sister Katie. We are both breast cancer survivors and I think she’s the first person that told me she would pray for me that I didn’t personally “know”. We quickly became internet friends, but got to meet in person this day. She’s holding a little wool owl I made for her.

The shop was absolutely wonderful. Yards and yards of wool. And tons of finished rugs hanging on the walls.Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 166Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 169Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 162Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 140Ozark and Warsaw w Tammy 141

This lady (sorry I don’t remember your name) was carrying a little bag she bought from me three years ago at our Springfield Boathouse hook in! I need to make some more of those!

This is the Darling project Jo Lynn is working on. I have never hooked right onto wool. I am liking the look!!

We ran into a terrible thunderstorm on the way home and had to pull off the road it was raining so hard. But we made it safely home at around 7:00 p.m. Thanks again for driving, Tammy.

Tomorrow I’ll go back to Friday and show you my day!

Beautiful rugs all around!

Oh Sheri! Love all the pictures! It looks like such a great time. Maybe I can make it with you guys on the next road trip!

If i win the lottery I want to go to the hook in at Saltbox. Those girls look like they know how to have fun.
Your little owl is darling.

love your wool owl and all the great photos of your hook in!

In Patty's latest newsletter from the Saltbox, she has pictures of the hook-in. It was easy to see Tammy's three rugs being displayed and you with the beautiful cat rug.

It was nice to see your photos and hers. What a great time you had, I'm sure.
