Showing Marla something.... what a quick learner!
Allow me to introduce FIVE of my newest students from our beginning rug hooking class here in the studio last Tuesday evening! What a fun group! Dave took these photos and for some reason he caught us in our more serious moments! Oh my gosh! We joked that if someone were recording our conversations we would be busted!!
I tend to hover a little like a mother hen. Marla again and on the right is Peggy.
Peggy on the left and Thea ( pronounced "Taya") and do you see who snuck into class down in the right hand corner by Thea? Max can't resist the ladies and is always hoping for a pat or two or perhaps a handbag left open to sniff the contents. Oh yes... he's gotten into some serious trouble in the past... like the time he stole an envelope of money out of someone's purse and was caught before he chewed through the envelope!
Meet Sue! She is going to be one creative hooker! She's like her teacher and sometimes doesn't read the directions! LOL! But I actually encourage that in my classes....
and Vicki... she looks like she doesn't quite believe what I am talking about! LOL! She had a rough start to the evening.... her car got a flat tire as she pulled into our driveway! A quick call to her sweet hubby and she had wheels again to make the journey home.
Vicki has a Primitive Shop called Simply! She is opening on May 2nd and I hope to be there with camera in hand!
The weather is shaping up here a little and by this weekend we hope to have some temperatures reaching 70 degrees! Northern Wisconsinites will be firing up their grills and getting out the lawn chairs in celebration!
Making a little more progress on my American Floral rug. Design by Maggie Bonanomi.
It's proving a little bit of a challenge... but I am ready for it! You can see I am playing around a little and adjusting the pattern a bit. When I get to that part I hope I remember what lines are the ones to follow! LOL! Should've done them in red marker.... so we shall see!
Hope it's nice and warm this weekend where you live! My friend Lisa said she heard frogs singing in the pond by them already.... Maybe.... just maybe... Spring will be here to stay!!
