Last week our 1st Tuesday rug group met and there was some great show & tell that I'm excited to share with you here.
Tonia started this sheep rug at our last meeting and she has now finished everything but binding the edge. I love the vibrant red background!
She has been making these sweet needle-felted sheep to sell at hook-ins. I had a hard time getting a good picture because it's so tiny - it's mounted in a bottle cap! Cute, huh?
Cindy was adding twill tape to the edges of this rug inspired by a visit to the lavender fields of Sequim Washington. In addition to wool strips she used hand dyed yarns and roving. I think it has a real Impressionistic vibe going on.
Jeanette drew up a design like the one I've been working on and is hooking it up a whole lot quicker than I am! I think her's is larger than mine is too!
The colors she's using are so fun and I wanted to point out that the flowers in the border are hooked from the same piece of wool. She cut the strips from different parts of the plaid so they're slightly different shades.
Sharon's hubby drew up a new Fraktur design to hook after studying some vintage examples.
Marliss is hooking a bird and a cage.
Kim showed us a darling scissor fob that she had cross-stitched - so perfect with her cute floral scissors.
Marilyn has started her third Deanne Fitzpatrick design - this one has quilts on a clothesline that is so appropriate since she's ann accomplished quilter.
Her daughter gave her this wonderful cross-stitched sheep - not sure how she will finish it. It was stitched on the tiniest linen I've ever seen!
A friend sent her this cute needle punched sheep - he is aged to perfection and looks like it's mounted in a rusty metal cupcake paper.
Sandy had just returned from the Bahamas and was sporting a lovely tan - she's making good progress on her stained glass rug.
I have just a bit of the border to finish on my rug and will share a picture of it soon.
