Well, we made it home on Sunday evening around 8pm. It was a wonderful 3 days and Ginger, Sandra and I had lots and lots of fun making memories.
This was my very first time to go to a hook-in and it was fabulous! My first impression was WOW!!!..these ladies are really talented. There were rugs in all sizes..from small wallhangings to area rug size. The colors were vibrant and the details in the rugs were amazing. I didn't know you could make a rug look like a painting. Simply breathtaking! We met some wonderful ladies, Betty and Robin. They brought their rugs to work on, but we came to shop. There were many colors and textures of wool to choose from. I wanted to buy one of each..but had to try and limit myself. There were wonderful patterns to choose from too. I went away with more wool and patterns than I will probably ever finish, but isn't that the point of a hook-in?
We headed back to OKC Sunday, but not before going to Greenwood, Missouri and stopping at 2 antiques shops we had been told about. We got there around 10am and the shops didn't open until noon so we had brunch at the local Italian restaurant. Actually, I think it was the only one in town. We sat and ate for 2 hours before leaving the restaurant so full we could hardly walk. We spent the next 2 hours looking for treasures. We found some pretty good deals and then left for OKC.
To sum it all up, we had a great time and are planning our next road trip together.
