She finished a Valentine mystery quilt that she got from her LQS - - - -
- - - - and did some coordinating applique on a small hand towel. So cute!
While watching the Super Bowl over the weekend, she pulled loops for these flowers through some hookable wool - and then framed them to hang on the wall. The flowers have a lot of dimension and the colors are the same as in the stool she did above.
Tonia and her five year old grandson have a favorite book that they like to read together called The Robot and the Bluebird. He also likes to 'help' her with her hooking projects - so she decided it would be fun to hook him a rug of his own using the story for inspiration. She had all the hooking done when she arrived and was crocheting the edge with wool strips during our meeting. What a lucky little boy he is!
Tonia brought us each a treat bag and attached these darling Valentine tags personalized with our initials using a Scrabble tile - that was a lot of work 'just because' - thanks Tonia!
And Marliss made some Red Velvet cupcakes for refreshments - her presentation was so pretty on this platter she inherited from her mom. YUM!
It was a fun day spent hooking and visiting with good friends.
I've been doing a pitiful job of rug hooking for months now. I started a large rug last May when I attended the Denver Hook-In and it's not even half way done yet. In an effort to motivate myself to finish it, I've decided that I will share it here on my blog in bits and pieces. That's easy to do because of the nature of the design. I'm making a row rug - each row measures 4" x 28" or so - and each row has a totally different pattern in it. Now that I've learned how to crop pictures, I can reveal each row separately - I'll show some that are already finished, and then each new row that I hook - until the big reveal at the end. Hopefully some of you remind me about it if you don't see a new section every once in awhile!
