Sweet sweet retreat


This hooked heart, by Lauren of rugs and pugs blog, is front and centre for Valentine’s week! It’s so prim and wonderful! 

Today I’m going to a rug hooking retreat- and it doesn’t end until Thursday! Oh bliss! I selected a Garrett Bluenose pattern, a floral and Greek key design. I started hooking with reds and an oatmeal background and then switched to dark antique-y colours:

I’ll probably change it up again at the retreat. Sigh. I dislike when colours don’t sing to me and life is too short for hooking combos that don’t.

Well, it’s time to go over my checklist again before I head out. Every hooking supply imaginable? Check. Wine? Check. Doorprize? Check. Shortbread? Check. Favourite pillow? Check….

Happy Valentine’s week to you

I won't tell you to have fun because I know you will as it happens automatically. Looking forward to your accomplishments at camp and see when you return if you changed up colors.

I hope you had a great time at the retreat. I so "get" the colors not singing part. I spent a few days at a hooking outing and just felt out of sync with my project. Guess I'm sill in that funk. ~Robin~
