Today I went to my friend Cathy's (Red Barn Rugs) to help her get some patterns, kits, etc. together for a rug hooking show in Milwaukee on Thursday....
I'm fortunate to have such a wonderful resource (and wool-source) (not to mention friend) just 5 minutes down the road, given that we kinda live in the boonies....
Stopped to say "hey" to the sheep at Farmer Brian's on the way:
(Yes, that's still snow on the ground....)
(Not nice to turn the other way when I'm talking to you! Probably thought I just wanted his wool for felting or something!!)
When I was supposed to be doing patterns, I took some pictures of just a few of Cathy's wonderful rugs to share with you (most were already packed for the show)....These are so much better in person...(For some reason, my camera seems to "over-expose" everything when the flash is on and the photos are too dark without the flash (photography tips welcome, as it is supposedly a very good camera....) so, I apologize for the photographic quality...but you get the gist of her beautiful designs....)
Said good-bye to Mamma & Baby on the way back:
(If you promise not to tell Cathy I was goofing off while I was supposed to be working, I promise to get more pictures of her rugs next time I'm there....)
