Rug Group

The 1st Tuesday Rug Group met this week and we had a great turnout of 11 gals - plus some really wonderful show & tell!  I think Jeanette stole the show with this adorable little seat that she bought at a thrift store for only $8. She painted it a cheerful red color and then hooked a floral cover for the seat. I love it! We all scolded her for keeping it in her closet where no one can really see it - she sits on it when she puts her shoes on every morning!

She started a new project at our meeting and is trying to use up a good supply of her accumulated worms. We'll see how that works for her - I feel like I usually end up with MORE worms after a rug like this! LOL Each block will have a red square in the center, surrounded by assorted colors.

Sandy has finished hooking an anchor rug that her granddaughter requested. For some reason that straight row hooking really appeals to me!

She made this adorable little wool-covered treasure out of an empty cheese box! It measures about 4" across.

Her delightful spring quilt was admired by all of us - she's really ahead of the seasonal curve!

Several of the gals were working on the little hearts that were started at the Guild meeting on Saturday. Marliss switched up the colors by using a hot pink, turquoise and chartruse green...

....and Kim made hers yellow/gold and green.

Shelly is a new hooker who met with us for the first time and is doing a great job on her 1st project.

Tonia is working on a Maggie Bananomi design that she bought in Maggie's class last year.

Sharon took this design from a vintage prayer book that she bought at a thrift store - inspired!

It was a lovely morning spent visiting with some of my favorite people!

A thrift find of a chair turned into a treasured piece with the rug hooked seat.

So much to love here, but I especially captivated by the little red chair (what a beautiful job), and Sharon's lovely project. The cheese box is awfully cute, too.
What was your project? : )
