2nd Wednesday Group

Last week when I met with the SLC rug group, our numbers were fewer than normal. One of our gals was cruising up the coast of New England (and got to visit Cushings) and another gal had just left for Italy. Sheesh! World travelers, both! LOL In spite of that, we had a good visit.

Here is the rug I've been working on for the last month or so. I'm hooking it with a #9 cut so it's going pretty quickly. It's long and skinny and will be a table runner. The yarn I found will be perfect for whipping the edges.

We meet at Nancy's house and she showed us a pillow that she had just made from one of her hooked pieces - it had a nice envelope backing made of wool.

And she pulled the final loops on this sweet rug while we were there..... might be another pillow!

The other Nancy was working on a small rug that will be the topper for a footstool - a vine with several hues of green leaves. She was still deciding what color to use for the background.

This floral arrangement was the centerpiece on Nancy's table for the season. So pretty!

My friend Yvonne - from the Netherlands - is visiting in Utah again. You can follow her travels here. I'm heading to the same area with my family later this week - sure would be fun to meet up with her, but I have a feeling she'll have moved on before we arrive. Darn!

Your rug is great, and that is the perfect yarn.
That is a beautiful finished pillow.
Envy the world travelers. I am lucky to make it to Salt Lake City a couple of times a year. :)

Your 2nd Wednesday Group looks like a great group of gals who create beautiful rugs, pillows, runners. Colors in the penny rug is a great choice

Wonderful projects. I love the soft mellow shades of grey and black in your table runner. Oh, too bad about not meeting up with Yvonne. So close!
