more from Eureka Springs

I am still at the lake---heading home tomorrow.  When I get home I have much to do to get things back in shape for home classes next week.  I also need to do a lot of dyeing to get ready for the Wisconsin workshops as well as planning and organizing for the projects. Where has the time gone????

Here are more pictures from Eureka Springs.

This is Sherry's "Autumn finale" and her friend Janet was doing the same piece drawn without the acorns .  Here is Janet's version.

This is Marcia's pattern---hard to see it in the picture but there is a red and green beaded line repeating the red and green checkerboard at the top.

Linda was hooking "Comstock" a Lib Callaway design.  This is one of my favorite designs.  It is an adaptation of a bed rug done by Mary Comstock in 1810.

Annie was working on this pattern by Vicki---she made yo yo flowers and stitched them on.

This cute little red shopping basket was found by Annie at a garage sale on her way to workshop one day---she sold it to me---thanks Annie---I love it!

I love it so much I posed inside the basket.

And on that note,,,I need more coffee so that's a wrap!


  1. Anita,

    What a great idea - to pin the strips of wool around the rug when color planning. Then students will go home with less questions and more empowerment to finish their piece.
    Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Love that little red grocery cart ~ all that running pays off! I could never fit in that space!!

  3. Anita I think you were having a little too much fun. I love all the rugs, thanks for sharing!

  4. The Comstock Rug is one of my favorite designs too! I hope to hook it one day! You know I'm smiling at the shopping cart pic! :-) I truly admire people that know to have some good honest fun! :-)
