Rug Hooking at Saltbox Primitive Woolens
You Need To See This Shop!



This morning Pati Jane, Sandra and I packed up the car and we were on our way from Oklahoma to the Rock Creek Hook~In located in Lenexa, Kansas....so on the way we drove up to Warsaw, Missouri to visit a wonderful little shop "Saltbox Primitive Woolens"

As we were riding up Sandra is busily hooking on a rug...yes you can rug hook in a moving vehicle if your not the one driving!



Okay...now to share pictures of a absolutely wonderful shop. We were greeted at the door and offered something to drink and a place to set our purses.



This is Patty Wallace the owner of Saltbox Primitive Woolens. They offer wool, patterns, supplies, classes, and just so much inspiration right inside the door!

Here is just a sampling of what waits inside...












I also had the honor of meeting a fellow blogger...Kati and she surprised me about knowing about my blog. It's always fun to meet fellow bloggers in person. She has hooked many of the rugs in the Saltbox Primitive Woolens Store.

Now if you ever get to Warsaw, Missouri be sure to stop in this wonderful little store you'll be glad you did.

Oh tomorrow will bring even more treasures as we will be visiting with Betty and her sil "Robin, and a friend we have yet to meet in person JoJo at the hook-in at Rock Creek so check back and I'll be sharing lots of pictures!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Ginger, From the looks of all the goodies in the shop, how could you focus your attention? I would have been bouncing around not able to concentrate! ~Ann
