Fall at The Country Loft

                                                                       A perfect day

Rug hooking group met today and I didn't have any tire problems so off I went to the Loft. I was able to look at all the  new patterns and fun things to make which was so relaxing. So I looked around Country Loft and took some Fall pics of the store.

                                            First Michele was so sweet
                                            she gave me this sweet quilt for my plain faced doll.
                                            I put the doll and quilt  next to the log cabin
                                            that Jack made to take the picture.

 Michele had just finished making a dress for her new old doll. So Michele and Jan were busy discussing where to sew the hem. .

                                                            This is a Judie Tasch doll

 Janes newest stuffed bear

There was some rug hooking going on today really I promise .The hooking might have been sporatic between catching up shopping and looking at the walls full of patterns we were all having fun.  I noticed there were some new Cheri Payne patterns and

JoAnn had her stitchery patterns all over the walls and of course Donna had a new pattern for rug hooking. So enjoy a Fall look at the Country Loft in La Mesa California

How many classes can a girl sign up for? The owl on the left is a rug hooking pattern
for a stuffed owl by Donna
Cheri pattern I had to have.
I have never made a penny rug.
JoAnn has great fall patterns

This is a simple acorn fall pin. Wouldn't this be a easy hooked acorn and it looked
cute on a fall shirt  .It's about two or two and half inches.

                                                      Another Cheri Payne pattern for fall

And so ends my perfect day laughing with friends having
inspiration all around me and feeling like I got something done.

I thought maybe you would like their web site

I love dolls but dolls with no faces are precious.

Cheri, about the coffee - I have to have normal coffee to start the day but I like a different flavored one in the evening. I order half normal, half flavored. There must be over 100 to choose from.

Larkrise garden girl said...

Hi Kim, It's a great machine. I sure enjoyed picking my flavor of Coffee.

Leontien, I bet your mother in law would love the shop too. I love your horse that is the most beautiful horse I have ever seen.I hope your doing O.K this week Cheri

Courtney said...

What a fantastic place! So full of wonderful things to make! I would love to visit and spend a good long time.

Farm Girl said...

Oh I wish I had a country loft here in Bako. Not a single store sells any wool. Nor patterns really.
I guess I will have to drive down there. :)
It looks all so very pretty.

Larkrise garden girl said...

I buy wools at all sorts of places Heavens to Betsy has great wools. But there is nothing liking seeing the patterns and wools in person.Cheri

CJ Stitching and Blooms said...

Lovely hand dyed wools and I especially love the hooked rug acorn. Love it. Hugs Judy

Jacqueline said...
