There was lots of nice show & tell - the gals have been busy! Jeanette pulled the very last loops on this rug while we were all there. This pattern originally was for three different Christmas stockings that would be hung on the mantle and be stuffed with goodies. But she chose to combine them all into a single rug and then added a border of her own design.
A couple posts back I shared pictures of Jeanette's new house. Before her old home was demolished she salvaged the wooden door of the medicine chest from the bathroom and she hooked a piece to insert in the center panel. It's attached with velcro and she plans to make several more little rugs so she can switch it out with the seasons. This way she was able to preserved a small bit of the home that she loved so much.
This is what Sandy is working on now - a special order for a granddaughter. It's a Sharon Smith design and the colors she's using are so pretty - soft & muted but not pastel.
Tonia brought her finished Red Riding Hood rug - her own design. The colors in this project are so rich and beautiful! She blogs at BaaRamEwe and I'm sure the pattern will be available for purchase if you are interested in hooking one for yourself.
Kim wasn't able to make it to our meeting last month, so she had a lot of show & tell to share with us. At a Guild meeting earlier this summer we learned how to make these cute proddy flowers on sticks, so she made up a bunch of them and had them all finished.
She also finished her little purse that was started at a Guild meeting - here are photos of both sides. She used a few different techniques to make it interesting.
