There was some good show & tell that day - but I don't really think very much hooking took place because of all the visiting that we did - and that's okay!
Here are pictures of Sharon's two projects she brought - this cute bird mat has a fraktur feel to it - I love the whimsical flowers too.
She crocheted the edge with wool strips using Karen Kahle's tutorial and it was the perfect finish for this piece. We hope she'll give us a demonstration one day so we can try it too!
Here is a rug she hooked from one of her grandchildren's drawings - I think this makes such a special rug - I can't wait till my grandson is big enough so I can do this too!
Jeanette is nearly done with this rug - she just has the background on the border left to do - it's a lovely soft green color that isn't really showing up very good in this picture because of the light.
We haven't see Kaye for months and months - but she has finished the rug that we last saw her working on. Her rugs always have personal meaning and significance and this one is no exception. It represents her ancestors who were handcart pioneers and crossed the plains on foot as they came to Utah - carrying all their earthly possessions in small handcarts. It also lists the names of the pioneer's descendants.
I don't think I got everyone in these next two pictures, but it gives you an idea of the set-up we had that day - there were probably twelve of us - which is a good turnout for the group.
And on another note, I received a package in the mail today from Whittle's Fabric - ordered two bundles of their sale Civil War FQ's for a good price - felt like Christmas!
