Rug Group

I attended the December meeting of my rug group a few weeks ago - we all brought goodies to share for a brunch - mmmm....... and we also exchanged white elephant gifts - why didn't I think to take pictures of those? 

There was some great show & tell. Tonia enjoyed the spotlight by bringing this beautiful rug that she's finished hooking. She started the crocheted edge while we sat & visited. It's a Tree of Life design and is absolutely spectacular. The light outlining around the tree just makes it glow against the dark background - BEAUTIFUL!

And Sharon started the crocheted edge on this small floral mat she made - her colors are always so drab and primitive - she's got great taste!

Angela was working on a small chair mat with a house & some trees - it's so cute.

Sandy started this today - a little mat to put on her granddaughter's stool - she's just two years old and it'll be fun for her to learn her shapes by seeing this rug.

Maryann joined us for the very first time and was working on this kit with a bird & tree that she got from Angela  - looks like we've got us a new member - yay!

As always, it was great to visit with all the gals!

Hi Gayle! I can't email you on Blogger because they use Outlook and the work stuff on my computer for my real job won't let me use Outlook. This is about the ruler. Email me your regular email addy at and I'll send you a picture. :)

Cheery wave!


Bev said...'s the link to buy the ruler:

I have the 9 degree circle wedge ruler but you can get a cheaper 14" or 18".

Hope that helps!
