1st Tuesday

Yesterday was the monthly meeting of my 1st Tuesday rug group and there was some great show & tell. Kim has been working hard on two large rugs. This one is totally finished and it's a spectacular view of her neighborhood & the surrounding area. I think I like the purple sky & mountains the best.

She finished the edge of the rug by crocheting around it with wool yarn which adds a really nice detail.

She's nearly finished with this map rug that she designed to fit a window seat in her husband's home office.

Jeanette is working on a cute fall rug with a colorful turkey, pumpkin & sunflower - so happy!

Sharon has been doing a lot of punch needle lately with a great new frame that she bought. This little witch's hat is attached to a block of wood about 3" x 4" - I love the little twig sewn on to the brim.

And this framed piece of a witch and her pumpkins is wonderful!

Sharon always wears her hand knit socks and the colors in the yarn of this pair was spectacular. Don't they look cozy and warm?

I started a Christmas table runner with holly leaves & pine boughs - it looks pretty messy in this photo, but sometimes I get yelled at if I don't include a picture of my own project, so here it is anyway! LOL

The Utah Hook-In is on 14th and it's always an event I look forward to attending.  Next month we plan on exchanging mugs with coordinating rugs (5" square). I'd read about another guild doing this and thought it would be so fun. I can't wait to see them all! I'll be sure to share photos.

You have some awesome talented friends. I'd have wrestled Sharon for those socks!!!! Those socks ROCK and I'm envious because I could not teach myself how to knit socks and finally gave away the variegated yarn to someone.

Can you really hear me yell from here when you don't include your own project? *LOL*
All of the projects are wonderful, but I especially love the first one with the purple mountains.
Look forward to seeing your project progress. : )

There sure are some talented ladies out there. Love the start of your Holly rug. What fabric do you use to hook with? Janice

I just love the primitive style of all the rugs, with the great perspectives and size differences of the objects. You all ar so talented. Thanks for sharing your own work too. And the socks are perfect for the cold weather heading our way. I admire anyone who can knit socks.
