More rugs from Lenexa hook-in and trip to Liberty, Missouri

Thought I would post some more of the beautiful rugs we saw this weekend at the Rock Creek Hook-in in Lenexa, KS.


Well hope you enjoyed the rugs. They were awesome in person..lots of very talented ladies.

Now for our Saturday afternoon jaunt to Liberty, Missouri.  Our first stop was Corbin Mill Place on Water Street.

Housed in this building are several shops.  First stop was Old Mill Stitchery.  Beautiful cross stitch samples everywhere.  I bought a couple of patterns from Notforgotten Farm.

The next shop was American! Whatever..primitive hooked rugs and wool owned by Sandy Williams.

Oh my, the walls were cover from the top of the wool bins all the way to the ceiling with hooked rugs.
   Loved the colors in this rug.
 This rug is a design from Woolly Fox.  If you look at the sheep's face, it appears that his looking straight at you or looking at the moon. Very cool!
This one is a Lori Brechlin design.
Just a sampling of the beautiful rugs that were hanging in this shop. 

The wood bins were full of all colors and textures of wool. 

We spent about 3 hours here and then headed to Rhonda Manley's, Black Sheep Wool Designs studio.  We arrrived there and were greeted by Rhonda and her husband.  What a great studio!  We were so overwhelmed by the studio and wool and rugs that none of us took pictures. So I guess you will have to use your imagination. We spent about an hour picking wools and left again with more WOOL.  Saturday evening we spent in the lobby of the hotel with other rughookers, talking and laughing, hooking on our rugs or doing needle punch.  We all said our good-byes that evening. Some were leaving early for the airport, others leaving to do some last shop stops before heading home.  
We left Sunday morning around 9am. We drove to Wichita, Kansas and stopped at a couple of antique stores that had been recommended to us. Here are the treasures I couldn't live without.

We ate a late lunch at Applebee's and then set out for home.  We arrived in Oklahoma City around 7pm.  Sandra and Ginger had to unload their treasures and head for home.   

 So we had an awesome weekend and made lots of new memories.  We are looking forward to next year and talked about leaving on Thursday instead of Friday.  Decided we could use an extra day of checking out more new shops(-: )

Have a great week.



  1. Great pics! Love that sheep rug with the moon! First glance I thought he was looking right at the moon... then I looked again and it looked like he was looking straight! Fun rug! You found some great treasures in your travels... is the scrappy table topper something you made or was that part of your finds? Next year will be here before you know it! LOL!
