I've also done a couple more little hooked rugs - will turn them into stuffed pillows to fill a basket.
Our rug hooking guild had a meeting on Saturday - many of the gals had expressed interest in learning how to do punch needle - so that was the focus of our get together. Here is what I accomplished that day.
And this is a piece that I made several years ago. Found the box at the thrift store, and punched an insert to fill the opening - I used quarters and dimes for the pennies - this is where I store my needle & threader and other supplies.
My friend Janet isn't a rug hooker, but she still loves wool. She recently sent an entry to Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine for one of their reader challenges. This morning she emailed me to say that her piece has been accepted as one of the finalists, so she will be sending it off to the magazine for judging. Isn't it pretty? She used wet felting and wool roving for this piece, then embellished it with some embroidery stitches and beads.
You can see the rest of the entries here.
I received the new issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects on Saturday and was tickled to find a picture in it of a basket quilt that I made from a previous issue - they put it in the little show & tell section of the magazine.
The pattern was designed by Cheri and that reminds me that I need to do some more stitching on the alphabet quilt that she's been sharing on her blog. I'm making my version with scrappy backgrounds and I'm crossing my fingers that it'll turn out okay.
