A few months ago, Beth Stitely, aka Purple Beth, presented a PURPLE program at our guild meeting. She drives a purple car, wears purple everyday, uses purple in every project...I think you get the picture! She absolutely adores purple! She brought a sampling of her rugs from her hooking career and they were absolutely gorgeous! (Sorry I don't have pictures to share.) At the end of her presentation, she issued a challenge. We were to hook a small mat to swap at our September meeting. The design could be of our choosing but an autumn theme was suggested. And you guessed it...each mat had to have purple in it!!!
Saturday was our guild meeting and 8 brave souls took Beth up on her challenge! Each mat was beautiful and went home with a proud new owner!
We had so much fun that we are going to do a winter-themed swap for our December meeting! Although the color guidelines have been relaxed, we decided that we would pull at least two purple loops in this project as well. I'll keep you posted!! Wonder what color we'll focus on next year?
I am blessed to be a wife, mother, sister and daughter of a very loving family. My husband and I have a 7 year old daughter who is truly a gift from God. We enjoy our life together and try to make time for the simpler joys of life!
