I am a rug hooker and teach rug hooking classes in my home as well as at camps and workshops around the country. I live in Overland Park, KS. I love using lots of plaids, textures and antique paisley in my rugs and hook mostly in wide cut (#6-9). I received my McGown certification in 2001. I love to share my knowledge and passion for hooked rugs with my students.
Today I went to a luncheon at one of rug hooking students, Marie. Marie started hooking with me in 2003. She is the most prolific hooker that I know---in addition she is a talented gardener and painter. I walked through her home today and took pictures of her rugs and her lovely garden. It would take me a very long time to post all of them so I'll just post a few to whet your appetite...I would estimate that there around 100+ pieces.
These are just a few of her rugs---hope you enjoy them!
Oh and lunch was wonderful!!! She is a talented cook as well.
Good morning! I'm up early having my cup of coffee and thought I would try to get in a quick post and then go for a morning run. It is finally cooler this morning so it will feel good to get out and run...too much food in the last two weeks!
Sheri got a good start on my Paisley on Paisley pattern.
This is Linda's long fraktur runner designed by Susan Fellers.
This is another Susan Fellers pattern adapted by Eleanor---she added one of the birds and the butterfly.
Here is part of the class hard at work---what a fun group of ladies!!!
That's it for today---hope everyone has a good day!
What a great time I had in North Carolina at the Caraway Rug School. I had a great class---thanks everyone. It was a long two day drive home. I spent the night in Louisville...the hotel clerk suggested a nearby Mexican restaurant since it was 9 o'clock by the time we arrived. Here is a picture of Kate and Cheryl who followed me home. It sure looks like they were having a great time. We were so ready to be out of the car.
I've been busy unpacking and repacking today to leave in two weeks for a workshop for the "Loopy Ladies" in Libertyville Illinois.
I thought I would post a few pictures from the workshop each day this week as time allows.
Georgia was hooking this Sally Kallin pattern for her grandaughter.
Ginny's Primitive Santa---an Emma Lou Lais pattern.
A trip to Crystal King Pottery in Seagrove NC with the girls from Kansas and Missouri who were at the camp. We were empty handed when we went in but not when we came out.
Okay that's it for tonight---I'm going to go put my feet up.
