Caraway pictures

I went to a rug show yesterday (my first) at a place near my house called Caraway Rug Camp.  It's about 20 minutes away, and there was a week long retreat/class going on with a show open to the public for one day. (Those of you who live where there is a lot of rug hooking going on don't understand how unusual it is for me to see this variety of rugs so close to home!)

Some pictures of the rugs I saw there:

I wish I had been more careful and photographed the tags accompanying the rugs to give credit to the maker.  I also wish there had been vendors there, as I really wanted to buy a new hook and love to actually hold things sometimes and try them out before buying, which you can't do online.

Here is what's blooming today at my house, bee balm--
 and the butterfly bushes are just starting--

And this handsome man has taken up residence on the roof of my shed, he won't let me touch him, but he hangs around.  Of course, I had to feed him, so I'm afraid he'll never leave now.


  1. Wow, those are some beautiful rugs. I didn't know you did rug hooking. I like the fellow on your roof too.

  2. I love the Klimt rug! Hope you are doing well and enjoying all our rain!
