UFO Challenge...have YOU seen one?

Earlier this summer, around the beginning of May, I asked the ladies if they had any Un Finished Objects (patterns/rugs) that they would be willing to mail off on a sort of 'Round Robin' trip across the country.

Twelve women signed up to participate with nine sending a pattern on the road.

They were encouraged to send a journal with their rug to document it's travels.
Each Hooker was asked to take a photo of themselves with each rug when they finished hooking their portion.
A few of the ladies were great sports and have done so, some were camera shy & only took pictures of the rugs and a few have not sent a photo to date.
At the end I hoped to have a visual diary to send the participants of their rugs journey along with a finished or almost finished rug.

Each participant was to hook about a 4 x 4 area based on the size rugs that were requested and if you wanted to hook more or a little less that was okay.

We are about halfway through with the rugs travel and I thought I would share some of the photos of each Rug as it started it's journey.

The person who sent them and the State they are from are above their rug/pattern sent in alphabetical order

Brenis from CO

Cheryl from Tx

Christie from NY

Cyndi from PA

Dulcy from MO

Jo from TX

Laurie from CO

Lois from RI

Mimi from CO

We all are having a WONDERFUL time contributing to someone's rug and are enjoying seeing each new rug when it arrives.

First of all, thanks to all of the wonderful hookers that will be helping to turn an old ufo into a beautiful finished piece!
It's fun to see the ones that are still coming, and gets my fingers itching(in a good way!) to have my turn with them!
Thanks, Tammy for putting up the first round of photos! Jo
