State Line rug hookers hooked journal class

Yesterday I taught a class for our guild on making hooked journal covers.  Here is my sample of a 6 by 8 inch journal cover.  They were able to choose from a variety of heart templates and the covers were hooked into the wool fabric.

Here are some members yard at work.

I finished the framing of my Karla Gerard,  Houses in the Birches---my husband made the frame and I painted it flat black---I like the simplicity of the frame for this piece---it was mounted on acid free foam core with t-pins.

I ordered another pattern from her and plan to work on it at our retreat at the Barn in Valley Falls, KS this coming Friday.  Here it is.  It should be fun to work on---nothing too serious for a fun, relaxing weekend with friends.  Still pondering my colors...hmmmm!

A cold day here in Kansas but the sun is shining.  We had a our wine tasting group at our house last night and had a fun evening trying some new wines---our theme was lesser known varietals---had some interesting wines from some grapes that I had never heard of...Melon de Bourgogne and Negroamaro were two of them.  A fun evening!

I hope everyone has a great week.
