Everyone brought some great food along with their recipe so that we can put a cookbook together. We also do a show and tell of current projects and a rug show. I didn't get pictures of the show and tells but took pictures of the rug show.
Here is the finished picture of the project I gave everyone for their gift. The sheep is hooked into the wool. I finished the edge of my pillow by inserting strips and the edge with a hemostat tool---works great!
Here we all are gathered on the steps at Mimi's.
And now for some pictures:
This is a picture of our guild rug which is being raffled off---proceeds benefitting the Spiva Art Center in Joplin MO which was devastated by the tornado earlier this year. Anyone interested can contact me---$5.00 for one ticket and $10 for three. We sold quite a few tickets yesterday---It is a large rug---about 38 by 50. It will be given away on February 25th at the Lenexa hook-in.
There were lots of geometric patterns this year---
Star Geometric hooked by Peggy
Pinwheel Quilt---about 34" by 58" hooked by Jo Ann---I did a smaller version of this earlier in the year when I worked out the pattern---much more impressive in the larger size!
Two Kilim pillows hooked by Kate
This is the same pattern as the pillows hooked as a runner---I didn't get the binding finished but I used the opportunity to give a little finishing lesson on how I did the binding. At the top of the picture is a glimpse of a bird nest hooked for me by my good friend Jody---I had to bring it to share with the group. Love it Jody!!!
A great way to use up leftovers!
Cheltonham, a Martina Lesar pattern hooked by Kate
Another scrap rug hooked by Marie
A great wall hanging hooked by Phyllis
This next group of pictures will show the popularity of some
Susan Quicksall rug patterns.
This is Amy's Crazy Horse runner in two parts---too big to get in one picture!
Crazy Horse rug hooked by Cheryl
Crazy Horse rug hooked by Wanda
Seed Basket hooked by Sally---love the tongues!
Amy's Floral pillows---found the perfect wool for the pillow backs!
That's it for today---will post more pictures tomorrow!
What a wonderful group of very talented ladies---I am very thankful for the great year I have had with them and hope everyone enjoys the holidays!!!
