 On Saturday, I attended the rug hook-in,  hosted by the Carnegie Rug Hooking group of Rothsay New Brunswick. Kimm mentioned that there were 110 hookers in attendance. I can believe it because the place was packed.  Lots of coffee, tea, and sweets. We brought our own lunch and mug and I can assure you,  no one left hungry. It was warm and sunny and they couldn't have picked a better day.  It was a wonderful way to spend part of Saturday. 

I did manage to take some photos as soon as I found a place to park my stuff this time but there were so many people taking pictures of the rugs on display and we had to share the tight space. I tried to move along as fast as I could.
