Tyler Texas, ATHA biennial, update on Bertha and other stuff

Well I thought I would try to catch up on my blog so here goes...

I taught an awesome workshop in Tyler Texas and wanted to share a few of  my students work...

Cranston Flower basket hooked by Naomi---off to a great start1

Jaci designed this fun bird for a footstool---love what she die with the wing using wool and a  men's silk tie!

Debbie was hooking Bugsy for a friend of hers---she definitely captures his personality!

Proverbs hooked by Diane---lovely little sampler---changed the gold lettering to a brighter gold after this picture was taken---great work!

Whatnots hooked by Pam---a fun pattern!n and great use of paisley---the pot is so good!!!

Sylvia worked on New England Twist and got a lot done---there is a" learning curve" to getting this twist pattern just right and she got it---#8.5 cut!  She will be done in no time!

Rebecca worked on my Hearts and Stars pattern===great caterpillar outlines around the hears and fun quillie flowers!

This is an awesome Quilt Block pattern hooked by Pam---she started with the Basket square and kept moving around using the colors and paisley in  different proportions---I love this rug!

Leah was a new hooker---I designed this rug for her kitchen---this is one that i want to hook---she did a fantastic job and became a confident hooker!

I am beginning to prepare for the ATHA biennial---I sent this picture to my students to help them select a color palette

This pattern will be available after the biennial---Twist and Vine

My antique goodies I bought on my trip to and from Texas...both stools had very ugly
covers on them.

Here are some updated photos of Bertha---I love her!!!  Makes me want to go to the Caribbean again ----well not right now in the heat but maybe in January!


  1. Hope you keep up with your blogging as it is nice to be rewarded with great rug hooking blogs. I'm hoping you will show other photos from the class because a woman named Carolyn was in your class as well I think. She visits my blog often and said she enjoyed your class.

  2. wonderful rugs but your bertha is amazing such great color

  3. Looks like a LOT of beautiful creations taking place, including ad Bertha.
    Thanks for sharing, it is always interesting,
