Tomorrow I'm going out to the Fairgrounds at the Kentucky State Fair to see if I've won any ribbons!! I hope that I have, but won't know until I get there. I'll be disappointed if I don't because I worked really hard on the three rugs I turned in this year. My style is different than anyone else's around my area. It's called higgledy piggledy which is a more random style of hooking than hooking in rows like most hookers prefer to hook. It's definitely a unique style and not too many hookers use this style of hooking. Deanne Fitzpatrick hooks in a style of hooking similar to this if you've ever seen her rugs or videos.
I changed the background on my blog today. I'm pleased with how it looks. I'm so ready for fall!! I only hope we actually get to have a fall season. After having such a hot sweltering summer, we're probably not going to have much of a fall season and will probably go right into winter. Ugh!! We had snow on the ground for 2 months last year which is highly unusual for this area. I hope we don't have a repeat of that again this year... :(
I'll post again tomorrow to let you know about the results of my rugs in the competition at the Fair!! Thanks for the nice comments about my rugs.
