I used a pattern that was made available to me as a member of Lori's Facebook Group - The Out of Hand Rug Hookers - a few months ago.
Last week I met with the Salt Lake group of rug hookers. Nancy had made progress on the runner she is making for the top of her little telephone table. The purple/pink section will be the center of the rug and it will be symetrical on either end. Unusual for her to not have any red in her rug since that's her favorite color! I think these dark pastels are so great for a primitive spring rug.
Myra's pumpkin is coming along nicely - she has plans to hook the leaves in gorgeous fall colors of orange, red, yellow & purple.
I also had my 1st Tuesday group meeting and there was some great show & tell there. Coralee is working on this floral with a wonderful eggplant purple background.
She showed us the results of a dye session she had recently done - this is her confetti dyeing.....
....and this is what she got by dyeing with avacado pits. Not a great photo, but the color is kind of fleshy toned.
Tonia was working on a new rug - she was inspired by a vintage piece of carved wood - can't remember what it was exactly, but it's going to be gorgeous.
Here a little more detail on one of the birds. Go check out her blog to see a great makeover she did on a thrift store recipe box combined with paint and punch needle - awesome!
Marliss is making great progress on this Sharon Smith design inspired by Aboriginal Australian Art.
And Michelle showed us a Maggie B bee skep she has been working on.
As always - I totally enjoyed meeting with these two group of gals to talk & hook & visit & eat for a few hours. I'm thankful that they allow me to share their work here on my blog so you can enjoy seeing what we're doing here in Utah.
