Jeanette brought this darling child's chair that she had painted to coordinate with the little mat she hooked for the seat.
And she was working on a bird rug that is one of Sharon's designs.
Sandy has made progress on her rabbit rug - she named this bunny after a neighbor who is a generous gardener (Gerald?) - I like the different layers of brown that she hooked for the ground and the triangles on the sides.
Kim is also working on a small bird mat.
Victoria's half circle rug is coming right along.
Tonia brought two great rugs - this first one is totally finished with a crocheted edge and is a design called Three Hares. She got the inspiration for it from an antique butter mold - but after doing some research she discovered that the Three Hares are a common folk art motif found in several different mediums and cultures - if you do a Google search for it you can find out more - interesting. The three rabbits share three ears in the center of the rug - and yet each of them look like they have two ears of their own - very clever. I love the polka dots in the background.
This rooster rug was also inspired by a butter mold - a fox playing the bagpipes while riding on a rooster - crazy fun!
I didn't bring a rug to work on, although I do have another finished row to show you.
Instead I was working on a hexagon quilt project that I'm making in conjunction with Pam Buda's Prairie Women's Sewing Circle class that I'm taking at my LQS - I think it's Journey 3. These are 1" hexagons and I'm making good progress - I always enjoy hexies because they're so portable.
I've made another project for this class - little 2" blocks set on point in rows. I'm hoping today I can choose the sashing and border fabrics for this and have it ready to take to class on Saturday.
I also have all my blocks made for the Temecula sew along - I need to add the sashing and borders to this one too. So much fun pulling from my collection of Civil War Repro fabrics.
