Tonia finished her Karen Kahle rug - this is a pretty big one (by MY standards anyway) and it was only half finished last month - so she's been really busy!
Here are several close-ups so you can see some of the beautiful details. Even though she hasn't ever taken a class from Karen Kahle - I think she's captured her technique really well.
Sharon was binding this cute little bird rug - love the colors she used on this - especially the background..
Victoria was working on a penny rug that she started a long time ago.
Jeanette brought these finished proddy flowers that she hooked and installed in a thrift store frame - I love the texture of them, and how she left the background unhooked so you could see the linen.
And this is the project she's working on now - everyone's favorite quote from the Bible about working with wool and flax - so appropriate for all rug hookers!
Switching groups - this is a cute little bird pillow that Terri recently finished - these vibrant, cheerful colors really pop against the black background. This was a free pattern in a recent issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.
And this is the second Halloween rug she's hooked using this pattern - the first one was made as a gift for her mother.
I'm making slow progress on my scrappy rug. It's very unusual for me to hook the background before the motifs, but that's what I've done with this one cuz I didn't want to drag a million colors of wool with me to meetings so I just grabbed the antique blacks and a green for the vine & leaves in the border. I hope I don't run into any problems when I get around to hooking the rest of those flowers!
