It was so fun over the weekend to read blog entries from well known quilt designers who were here in Utah for the International Quilt Market - they said really nice things about the beauty of our state, and about Salt Lake City and the mountains behind it that set it off so wonderfully. Living here I sometimes forget that people come from all over the world to see the sights that are practically in my back yard.
I'm way overdue for posting pictures from my rug hooking meeting a couple weeks ago, so without further adieu, here they are.
Sharon hooked up this antique rug design, and added the little mouse in the corner to put her own special touch on it. I'm always amazed at how the colors she uses in her rugs makes them look like instant antiques - beautiful!
Sandy made this cute little round sheep pad.
Marliss is pleased with how her floral rug looks now that she's switched the background from a light to a dark wool.
Kim's very first project is coming along nicely. The vibrant colors of her hollyhocks are so pretty!
Jeanette got the whole border on her rug hooked, and made huge progress in getting the background in.
Victoria has hooked most of the animal motifs on her rug in a dark color and is planning on hooking the background in a red wool, which will be a great contrast.
Cindy finished her rabbit rug and I feel so badly that my photo of it doesn't do it justice because the flash didn't work or something on my camera. She was disappointed that she didn't have enough of the same white wool to hook the rabbit in it's entirety and she had to use a couple different pieces for it. I think that it made the rabbit MUCH more interesting to look at with the slight variations in color.
Marilyn brought a doll and a rabbit that she had made and they're just adorable!
