Since I missed posting on 'Throwback Thursday' thought I'd give you a Friday version.  Good heavens, has it been nine years already?  This is a photo of a hook-in held at my house April 2011.  That is me on the left  with my girl Shadow. 
From left to right is me, Shari, Deb, Mary and Char.  The girls stayed a couple days which also corresponded with the rug camp being held at the Dunes Hotel.  That would also be the same rug camp which has been cancelled this April due to the Corona-virus.

Here is a picture of Shari and Char on the deck since they were the first two to arrive.
It appears Shari is working on a Bev Conway design with pears on it.  And I happen to have a finished photo of it.  Think it was called Pears and Partridge in case you want to purchase the pattern from Bev Conway.
I was working on two different rugs at that time and here are both finished.  One was Home Tweet Home, a design by Karen Kahle.
Was also working on a hooked version of the 1863 Jane Stickle Quilt using blocks which I could hook in #8 strips.  
Here is the booklet that was the inspiration for us rug hookers to honor Jane Stickle.
Those who participated in this rug challenge and send photos by the deadline were debuted in the Nov/Dec 2012 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.
Mary didn't hook, instead she brought her spinning wheel and spun wool.  For the life of me cannot recall what Deb or Char were working on.  

When April camp was in progress there would be a rug show so a couple gals drove the hour to take in the show and eat lunch while the rest of us stayed behind.

Happy Friday, happy hooking and wishes for good health.
