This mornings photos will center around Paisley design rugs hooked at the workshop. The sun is shining and it is going to be a beautiful day.
This is a pillow that I designed for Eden. She is still going to add a few more motifs to fill in around the paisleys. I think it is going to be a beautiful pillow.
Karen chose to work on my Paisley runner that is 16 by 34---she got a lot done. The border is changing to the border started at the bottom.
Marie chose my large single Paisley design that is 20 by 30. I like to draw the basic design and let the students add the details---I like what she chose to do.
Wanda started with my runner pattern but changed the smaller paisley to go over the larger one---adapted from a shawl she was using as her inspiration. She added some interesting smaller details.
Jane is doing the Paisley on Paisley design in a slightly smaller size than my original---about 28 by 48. I will get to see this continue to develop as jane is also one of my home students. I also owe a big thanks to her for transporting some of my wools to and from the camp. Thanks Jane!
And last but not least of the paisley designs is Sharon's---she designed this one herself for a table mat and is going to finish it without a background---leaving some open areas. I'm so excited to see this finished!
It was a delight to have Sharon in class as she has been my teacher at several workshops in the past. I admire her work and am happy to call her my friend.
That's it for this post---one more tomorrow should finish up the Newton Workshop.
It looks like a great day for a run!
