Lots Of Rugs!

At our 1st Tuesday rug hooking meeting this week it was so nice to see all the gals. The last couple months our attendance has been sporadic because of the weather and other problems, but this time there were no issues and we all enjoyed our time together. Everyone was working on lovely projects, and we talked about books, and food, and families, and started planning for a rug hooking retreat that we're all  looking forward to. I snapped pictures of all the rugs that were there and will share them with you.

Tonia has been very busy since we saw her last and brought these projects all finished up!


I love how the design she did on this pillow bumps out into the border - I think it adds a lot of interest.
And she finished hooking part of the background on this one while she was at the meeting. She said her next rug was going to be a large runner - can't wait to see it!
This is Sharon's fun rooster rug. It's her own design and I love those polka dots! The border will have pennies all around the outside. The outline on the rooster really makes the design POP, huh? It's quite a large rug.

Marliss is working on a penny rug design from Maggie Bonanomi's book "With These Hands". She's going to hook the background with a dark wool and all those colors will look scrumptious. I have that book too, but haven't seen it for months - I need to unbury it so I can droll over all the wonderful pictures of her home again.


Victoria is doing a rug from a Need'l Love book. Love that red clamshell border.


Sandy is working on a small sampler rug when she comes to meetings, but there's a reallly big one on her frame that she works on at home.

Everyone's projects are great. How is Victoria? I haven't talked to her in ages. I'm glad she still joins you in the groups.

Gayle. I just love hooked rugs and I wish I knew how to hook.

Thank you for sharing them.
They are all beautiful!

Maybe one of these days I'll learn the art of hooking too!
