FUN AT RED HOUSE WOOL STUDIO!



 (ME ON LEFT, CATHY ON RIGHT)
OH MY, WORDS CAN'T EXPRESS THE FUN
TIME I HAD IN RICE LAKE, WISCONSIN
WITH MY DEAR FRIEND CATHY GRESCHNER
AND HER LOVELY GROUP OF LADIES
THAT COME EVERY SECOND TUES. OF
EACH MONTH! A BIG THANK YOU TO 
CATHY FOR LETTING ME COME AND
VISIT!! I WAS ON SENSORY OVERLOAD
THE WHOLE TIME AND IT WENT BY WAY TOO
FAST! 

CATHY ASKED ME TO BRING SOME OF MY
HOOKED RUGS AND OTHER GOODIES FOR
DISPLAY. HER LIVING ROOM WAS THE PERFECT
BACKDROP WITH HER PRIMITIVE ANTIQUES
FOR THE BACKGROUND AND THE BOLTS OF
WOOL SHE STORES THERE!



I TOOK SOME OF MY ITEMS FOR SALE.
I ALSO GIFTED THE GIRLS WITH THE PATTERN
FOR MY PUMPKIN PATCH RUG ON THE
FOOT STOOL AND THEY HAD FUN PICKING
OUT THE WOOL'S IN CATHY'S SHOP TO 
GET STARTED. WAS SO FUN!





SWEET MAX WAS KIND ENOUGH TO LET US
USE HIS FAVORITE SPOT FOR DISPLAYING MY
RUGS. I DON'T THINK HE MINDED TOO MUCH!!


IN THE STUDIO, BUSY BUSY WORKING
ON PROJECTS AND TALKING ABOUT WHAT
TO DO FOR FUTURE PROJECTS!
CATHY'S RUG STUDIO IS OH SO WONDERFUL!!
SUCH A NICE GROUP OF LADIES. I WAS SO 
GLAD TO MEET ALL OF THEM.
I TOOK A FEW OF MY QUILTS TO SHOW AS WELL
 AND WE HAD A MINI "TRUNK" SHOW.




I'M DEFINITELY GOING BACK TO VISIT AGAIN!
MAYBE NOT TILL NEXT SUMMER BUT I WILL
BE BACK!!  IF YOU ARE IN THE RICE LAKE, WI
AREA GIVE CATHY A CALL TO VISIT HER
WONDERFUL SHOP. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
HER BLOG IS ORANGE SINK.

I HAVE A FEW PICS OF CATHY'S HOME I'LL
SHARE ANOTHER DAY.

UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

MY FRIEND PAM FINISHED HER 
BIG LOG HOUSE RUG
SO I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU!
I'M SHOWING MINE AGAIN SO YOU
CAN SEE THEM BOTH TOGETHER.
SO FUN TO DO WITH MY SWEET FRIEND
ACROSS THE MILES.


PAM'S RUG IS ABOVE.


MY RUG. I CHANGED MY FLOWER.


BITTERSWEET PUMPKIN PN MAT.
I PUNCHED IT LAST FALL USING
MOIRE WOOL THREADS AND I LOVE
HOW IT CAME OUT! MUCH MORE LIKE
A HOOKED RUG LOOK. 
I PUT IT ASIDE AFTER THE PUNCHING
WAS DONE AND JUST GOT IT OUT
TO FINISH THE EDGE YESTERDAY.
I AGED THE PUMPKIN A TOUCH.
THE DESIGN IS BY LORI BRECHLIN
OF NOTFORGOTTEN FARM. 

AND....I'M SO EXCITED!!!!! TOMORROW I'M
OFF TO VISIT CATHY OF ORANGE SINK BLOG
AT HER HOME AND STUDIO IN WI!!! SHE HAS
 A GROUP OF LADIES THAT COME THE SECOND
TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH AND I WILL
BE MEETING WITH THEM ON TUES.

OVER FOUR HOUR DRIVE FOR ME.
CAN'T WAIT!!  HERE I COME, CATHY!!!

SHE ASKED ME TO BRING SOME OF 
MY HOOKED RUGS AND QUILTS SO
I HAVE MY CAR LOADED WITH 
SHOW AND TELL GOODIES!!

OUR TIME TOGETHER SO CHECK BACK.
I'VE "KNOWN" CATHY FOR A FEW
