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

What a perfect pairing of two very talented artists! Hoping to meet you both someday! I imagine those ladies had a memorable time seeing your gorgeous work in person and having available all those yummy wools to color plan their projects.

I agree, Cathy! So much more to share! I'll be back for sure my friend. I'm still thinking about our time together and how much fun it was. It truly was the highlight of my summer too. Can't wait to see that gorgeous rug finished you are working on. You are a very gifted artist.
Big hugs, Lori
