Well today was the Holiday Party for my students. I didn't get pictures of the rugs in Progress ( Show and Tell) but I did take pictures of finished rugs that the students brought in...can't post all of them but I'll pick out a few to post. A big thank you to Mimi, our host. She does a great job of providing us with a lovely place for out luncheon. Everyone brings a dish to share and is supposed to bring their recipe for a book we put together. I provide the wine so a good time was had by all. Here is a picture of everyone:Don't forget you can click on the pictures to make them larger! It is hard to see those heads way in the back.
This is a great group of very talented rug hookers and good friends. I am very blessed to have such a great group of women to come to my classes.
Here are some of their rugs.
This is the kit I designed and put together for all of the students. Mine was made into a pillow.
A fun cat rug hooked by Marie!
Anne's Halloween rug---she has a brighter color pallette than many of my students and I always love seeing how her rugs turn out.
This one long rug but it took me two pictures to get it all. It was hooked by Bonnie. She has a great primitive, old color pallette. A great rug!
Peggy hooked this froggy rug for her granddaughter---what fun!
Cheryl started this rug with me in September at Green Lake rug Camp---it really turned out great.
This was her start at camp.
Kate started this one in June at Caraway ---it is called Jane's Favorite. Love the reddish border!
Well there are more to post but have no more time now. I have another party tonight---our neighborhood bunco party is tonight and I have to make a salad and get a present! Nothing like running late.
Yesterday I did a major cleanup in the studio---it looks much better now---I may even be able to find things. I did uncover my Primary Fusion Dye Book which had gotten back behind the drawers in my dye area---been missing for over a year!
I also taught my husband how to serge and he helped me draw the outline on a whole bunch of my Cupboard Series rugs---which are now ready to draw the patterns into...I am saving those for my daughter to help me with when she comes next Monday.
A bit thanks to all my students and especially Mimi for hosting the party to day. You are great!!!!
