'Twas a day in October, at the D.D. Collins house
The ladies got together, but not a single mouse;
They brought pieces of fabric, and designs so dear,
To each one's family, to bring great cheer.
Ann chats with Angela (left) and Rhonda (right) during the rug hooking event.
Ann wore an apron, of which her family jeers
But loves it does she, it is quite clear;
Its pockets are filled with lots of good stuff,
Like tools for pulling loops of fabrics and fluff.
Rhonda concentrates diligently, as you can see,
On filling in the details of her plucky turkey;
The date is included in her spiffy design,
Yep, that's right, it's 1879!
Angela is going to town, with hook in hand;
Primitive rug hooking skills she does command.
It's fascinating to watch with such intent,
The beautiful rugs these ladies created at this fun event;
Surely you see it, I know you do,
The warmth of home is felt through and through!
