Just a Taste of Camp!

Pati and I loaded up her car on Sunday May 23rd and headed to Tyler, Texas for our very first rug hooking camp "Star of Texas" and wow was it ever fun. We had Maria Barton of Star Rug company for our teacher and we learned so much and had a grand time laughing and getting to know one another.

It took 3 times unloading the car to get it all in! Pati and I learned through all of this that maybe we didn't need to bring quite as much so next time we will be packing just a little lighter. It was neat to see how all the seasoned hookers had brought all of their supplies.

We then met with our dear friend Jo and enjoyed going out for some yummy Mexican food. Then the rest of the evening was getting to know each other and working on whatever you wanted.

I'll let you enjoy the pictures below. I have lots more I'll be posting in the next few days. We enjoyed a rug show on Wednesday....hope you enjoy it, too! Some of the rugs I was able to get the name of who hooked it and who the design was by.

Happy Trails....Ginger
