I want to share a glimpse of the rug my friend Lisa is working on! Another version of the antique rug some call Clover Buds in Basket. Some day I hope to hook this one myself! I'm loving the color choices we picked for this one! Remember her first rug was hooked with a dark antique background. Any bets she'll get this one done in time for Valentines Day? I'm keeping busy here in the studio preparing for my next beginning rug hooking class at WITC our local technical college. There are nine lovely ladies waiting patiently for class to begin! There's room for a couple more if you have been thinking about giving rug hooking a try! The project I have planned for them is in progress and I think they will love it! I don't want to spoil the surprise by showing you the project just yet.... I know some of the students are reading my blog! Also keep an eye out for an applique class that Jill will be teaching here in the studio in a few weeks. The model she is working on for the project is awesome! I hate keeping all these secrets from you! But then again it's good to have something to look forward to! What are you looking forward to in the way of Spring projects..... would love to hear! Oh.... and there's two big things I'm looking forward to this coming week.... #1. A huge wool order from Rebecca Erb Wool Studio #2. A new laptop computer Oh yea! The second one was totally unplanned but my Mini Mac that I have had "like forever" LOL! cannot be upgraded with the new browsers etc. What a racket this computer stuff is heh? Also the keys on my keyboard are sticking like crazy and I have been having fits trying to type things. Dave brought home a couple of used keyboards they had laying around the office that we are using until the new laptop comes! Boy oh Boy! Now I can be connected to the web and you my dear readers in every room of the house! And even outside! What? Did I hear you say be careful what you wish for? ..... Cathy G
