Ron and I went to the With Hands and Hearts Antietam Fiber Artist Guild meeting on Saturday. We had a pretty good size group considering it was July 2nd. Around here that means the big fireworks display at the Antietam Battlefield. This years event was attended by over 30,000 people. I'm not a large crowd kinda girl so Ron and I viewed the fireworks from the Pry House Hosptial Museum and had a wonderful time. The Pry House is right at the end of our road so it wasn't far to go and no crowds. We very much enjoyed the show, it was a good one this year.
Everyone is enjoying themselves either hooking or fellowshipping. We are very lucky as a guild. The Boonsboro Library allows us to meet there once a month in their large community room. It's a great space wtih great lighting.
Of course I had to include a picture of my handsome husband. :-)
This is what Jenn was working on. The pattern is by Susan Feller. The outside border is Fraktur while the middle is left blank for you to come up with your own design. I love the neutral middle. This makes the colors in the border just pop.
This beauty is being hooked by Kathy. The Goosecreek Ruggers had Eric Sandberg for a three day workshop and everyone in the group worked on the same pattern. Each rug that I have seen so far is different as can be, but each is great.
If you are free on the first Saturday of the month, please join us at the Boonsboro Libray. We meet from 11:00 to 2:00. We would love to have you come and visit with us.
