Fun with the Wool Sisters

What a great time was had by all with this great group of women.  Such fun---so much laughter and yet so much accomplishment!  And so much good food---Elizabeth is a great cook!

Here are some of the projects done by the students.

This is Bobbie's "Ride 'em"---a pattern by Sharon Smith---this little girl is sporting a paisley scarf and the horse has red paisley reins---check out this close-up

Ginger  hooked a pattern called "The Reader"  also by Sharon Smith---she did a great job with the dog and girl---can't wait to see this one finished.

We had many discussions about those helicopters in the background---there were many ideas about they really were.

Several of the students actually finished rugs...

Here are some of them

This is Penny's "Dog in the Window" ---this is Ruby---isn't she a great dog---Penny called herself a dirty hooker so we had great fun with this one---even worked in a couple of paisley patches.

Melanie finished this Fish pattern designed my Margaret Pitman.  She even got the binding sewn on but I didn't get the picture with the binding on---she used the black dotted fabric and will be about 3/4 inch wide showing around the edge.  Great job Melanie!

Faye worked on my newest cupboard design called "Give a Hoot"---She got it finished and decided to add a proddy edge and make it into a pillow---Love the purple background and the edge really make this one sing.

I will post more pictures soon...I drove all the way home on Tuesday in one day---not sure that I'll try that again any time soon.  I was pooped out all day Wednesday---even took a nap which is something I almost never do.

I am busy working on preparations for the Caraway camp in North Carolina---plan to hit the dye pots today before heading to the lake for the weekend.

Have a great Memorial day weekend.
