And the cat was let out of the bag that the bent ATHA Biennial will be in San Antonio!
Here are a few of the projects being worked on by my students.
Gina designed this antique style primitive floral with a leafy scroll---she is well on her way to a great rug!
Susan was working on the ever popular Tulip Cross---some great paisley is in those flowers!
Here is a sideways shot (sorry) of Comstock---this is an all-time favorite pattern and Cyndee is doing a great job!
Hard to see this pattern but it is an M Shaw Rooster---I love the texture Janyth was creating in the chicken's body.
Brenda, a fairly new hooker was doing her hubby's dachshund---in the original pattern the bones were in the background but we decided to make them the border.
Jane was working on a
Woolley Fox pattern called three Clucks---Rhode Island Red, Plymouth Rock , and Buff with green tail were her choices---looking great! We changed the background to have a straw floor and a fence.
Here are two versions of a McGown prayer rug---the top one is going to have a red field and the bottom one a blue field---these were being hooked with mostly texture in #4-6 cut---no small feat. Great job Georgeanne and Cheryl!
Carol was hooking a Karla G pattern---Paisley Groove---these patterns are such fun to work on!
Lonnie chose this geometric to work on---lots of texture in this one---she only has to repeat it 8 times!
It is going to be a great rug.
Grace was doing one of my Cupboard designs---Pineapple---her first wide cut hooking, She is adding a border and beaded the beauty line---way to go!
Judy is well on her way to some beautiful Pansies---I will see this one finished in November---go Judy go!
Sherry is working on my "Paisley on Paisley" pattern---the teals and oranges are making a lovely complementary color plan.
Saundra has an ambitious crewel style pattern, but wanted to hook with textures---more like a floral textile with a gold background---we pulled a great palette of fabrics from her stash and added some of my textures to work in with hers.
Joan was also doing Comstock---she made great progress and hooks beautifully---she is my little sister at Teacher's workshop---and a great one at that!
A couple of others got theirs packed up before I got pictures. It is a great workshop but a lot of time is packed in over what seems to be a short weekend.
Well gotta go get some work done. It is a beautiful morning in Overland Park---may have to go for a bike ride today.
