Then some of the kids and their families joined us for a few days and we did fun stuff like hike in this kind of country - we also played in some sand dunes and explored a lava cave.
This is the new rug I'm working on - I had to start a small portable project because my family rug was getting too big and bulky to transport to gatherings.
My family rug just needs a little more of the border finished and then I can tackle the center part again and hopefully get it all finished.
Here are some show & tell photos from my recent group meetings.
Tonya is making this rug for her grandson - a warrior wearing the Armor of God with a scripture around the border.
Kathy is a brand new hooker and this is her first project - she drew it herself - I think she's a natural!
Jean is her friend who is doing a great job on a hooked penny rug. These gals are a great addition to our group and I look forward to getting to know them better - they both live quite near me.
Nancy got her Maggie B rug finished - fun to see it done so vibrantly instead of the drab colors that Maggie uses. The design looks good every which way it gets hooked.
Janet shared a couple quilts she recently made. This small green one looks great with the spiral machine quilting that she did in each block.
Her & her sister both made quilts exactly like this one - very graphic and modern looking.
Jayna showed us a pretty bowl that she recently bought - - -
- - - she works for the school district and during Spring Break took a trip to Venice Beach CA with a couple friends. Her favorite part of the trip was touring the Mosaic Tile House where she bought her bowl. She shared a slide show with us of this house which was amazing. The artist was delightful and friendly. Guess the house has been featured on several HGTV programs, in books and magazines - it's very unique - you can tour it yourself if you click here
I got a couple rows done on the baby quilt for DD#2 - I'm having fun with it!
OK - I'm all caught up now!
