Gladys
I started the trip early and hooked for the day with the group that gathers every Friday at the Fox Cottage in Centerville, OH. I had a great time. I spent the rest of the weekend shopping and hooking with my good friend, Sue Ellen Fox. From there on Sunday I headed to Ripley, WV for Southern Teachers’ Workshop.  Teachers’ workshop is continuing education for rug hooking teachers.

Monday

Monday was wide cut textures.  My color came up last.  That means I got last choice on which class to take, but I would have enjoyed hooking any of the patterns today.  I rarely hook a pattern without changing something.  We were supposed to hook the dog with a nice rusty brown, but I saw the white textures (intended for the dog wood blossoms) and could only think about Sue Ellen’s puppy, Gladys.

Gladys

I’ve never thought of English bulldogs as cuddly, but Gladys is a snuggler. Spell check does not like the word snuggler, but that is the best word to describe her. Needless to say, I fell in love.
