Tonia is already thinking Spring and was working on this original design showing a mother hen harvesting colored eggs from trees. I'm sure she'll have it finished for our meeting next month and I can't wait to see it!
Sharon finished stitching down the edge of the rug she started in the Maggie B workshop we took a few months ago. This is done with wide cut (torn) strips and the background is my favorite part.
Eileen brought this sweet Nativity that she had made for Christmas - made with wool roving and a felting needle - it's small! Eileen is the most knowledgeable person I know when it comes to rug hooking, knitting, weaving, spinning, felting, & crocheting. So glad she's my friend and is willing to help and answer questions from anyone.
On Wednesday, we got to see Nancy's finished tree rug - if you look closely on the left side you can see a wonderful flower with a spiral in it that is done with a special hand dyed wool that changes colors - a great detail on this rug.
This is what she's working on now - a vintage design she found in one of her old rug hooking books - lots of color and interest in this one.
Tomorrow I am taking a workshop with Pam Buda of Heartspun Quilts at my LQS. I got all my prep work done last week and I'm raring to go make this quilt. (I'm switching the position of the light and dark fabrics and I sure hope it'll turn out okay).
In the meantime, I saw a great project that Jo was working on and it really caught my attention. She blogs at Ramblin' Rows.
I decided to make my own version, but much much smaller. Here's my start on the design wall - little 3" blocks using Civil War reproduction fabrics -
I think today's snow has finally accumulated enough that I need to go out and shovel the driveway now. Hoping there are no neighbors out there with their noisy snow blowers to disturb the peaceful quiet that I always enjoy when I do this......
