And what a great day it was! Lots and lots of projects to share and admire!
Celeste is having so much fun with her rug she adapted from designs in Rebekah Smith's Wool Applique' Folk Art book!
Look closer at the wools she used in the background! Each square different! LOVE the colors in this rug! So warm and inviting! Great job Celeste!
Nancy is showing her wool applique' blocks while Holly looks on!
The design is from the new Wool Works magazine.
Love the colors she chose! This is going to be gorgeous when completed!
Allow me to introduce a newcomer to our group! You may remember Rhonda from a few posts back! She took a wool applique' class here when we did the bunny pillow from Rebekah Smiths Wool Applique' Folk art Book. Rhonda does these wonderful crochet bags and decided to add the wool folk art blocks to the front of them! Wow! How awesome they are! What an eye for color this lady has! She has hooked a mat from a pattern from Kathy at Red Barn Rugs also. Rhonda certainly has a gift for handwork and design! Hairdresser by trade but I think she should consider a career in rug and applique' design don't you!! I am so glad she has decided to join our group! She's an inspiration to all of us!
More of her work!
She always puts her own touch on a pattern! Love the addition of the flower on the bunny!
It was a very very busy day for me today! I didn't get much of a chance to snap more photos! The time just flies and soon everyone is heading out the door with their new woolens and supplies!
I am so blessed to have such an enthusiastic and supportive group!
I'm back to the drawing board working on a new rug design.
Put my last effort away and have learned from it I think!
This design stuff is not for the faint hearted... we all have inherited gifts and talents it just takes a lot of practice to bring them out!
So practice I must!
After seeing all the beautiful projects today I just have to get back on that bandwagon and keep trying!
Thank you all for the kind words of encouragement & suggestions!
I truly appreciate each and every comment!
Stay safe and warm if you live near the blizzard in the east and southeast!
I hear you are getting clobbered!!
Been there haven't we my friends here in WI!
The sun is shining and very little snow on the ground here.... oh and I just spotted a robin hopping in the front yard!
