Today was a beautiful, busy day here in the studio! My friends came from Grantsburg, WI to spend the day hooking, chatting, snacking and sharing their latest projects! AND they came with this HUGE beautiful bouquet of fresh Spring flowers!! How they spoil me! The day flew by as we color planned, hooked and admired the rugs they are working on!
Meet Sharon! She is working on quite a few projects. The rug she's working on in this photo she's hooking in a nine cut! I'll have to catch photos as she gets a little more hooked! We color planned her next rug, a design by Sharon Smith, you can see a glimpse of the pattern cover in the lower left corner! Sharon is so pretty! Long beautiful hair! She's a bit camera shy so I had to snap quite a few before I caught her looking up!
Here is Cindy! She's a hairdresser when she's not hooking rugs! Oh and look at the footstool cover she just finished hooking! She is working on a proddy edge for it so will have to try to get a photo of the finished piece! She ran out of wool for the background a few times... we fixed her up with colors that blended quite well... but she's no stranger to reverse hooking! She has a lot of rugs and projects in the making too! I think next month when we get together again the girls will bring more to show and tell!
Don't you love Cindy's hair? She's such a cutie! Makes me want to chop my long white mane off for summer.... hmmmm will have to think about that! LOL!
Will you take a look at this fabulous rug!! It is a footstool cover being hooked by Elaine! It is a camping scene that she had specifically drawn by a friend of hers. It depicts a mountain, camper, river and all the elements of camping outings she enjoys with her family! I LOVE that old rusty red pick-up truck! Elaine is working on numerous projects too so hopefully we'll get photos to show the next time they come down for a visit!
Elaine is a beautiful lady! She makes her scarves, hooks handbags for every sister and niece in her family! I am hoping she wants to adopt me!! LOL!!
