It does not matter what part of the country you are in right now or what you are doing – DROP IT and get to Archbold, Ohio immediately! The hooked rug exhibit this year is inconceivable! I am sure you are thinking to yourself “they say that every year…” and you are right (it is incredible every year) but this year in particular has knocked our socks off! The Green Mountain Hooked Rugs team got a sneak preview tonight. We only had two hours to take it all in and needless to say we ran around like kids in a candy story. I will do a full blog on the exhibit later in the week with lots of photos, but until then, I will give you one photo a night. Scroll to the bottom to see tonight’s photo.
Oh yeah, I completely skipped over the rest of our day…
The two hours of we spent at the preview of the exhibit completely overshadowed the rest of the day which was otherwise lovely! We spent the entire day hooking, something we have not done together in a really long time. We had a spacious, well lit, room to hook in. There is plenty of space in the hotel and lots of little nooks and crannies where you can hook alone or in a larger group (like ours). We all got a lot done on our projects, photos of our current projects below.
We are working so diligently.
