SNOWY Saturday class photos & WOOL APPLIQUE CLASS Project ~

...At today's Hooked Basket Class, we welcomed Miss Pat Cross to our little circle of friends ~
here she is (holding her coffee) sitting in front of her newly hooked rug she is calling "GERTIE"
(which is actually one of my folk art designs available as
"Witch's Walk" at www.spruceridgestudios.com) ~
beautiful "Gertie"...

Pat's hooking, color-planning and placement is just beautiful ~
...she is one talented Lady

love the purples and greens...the swirl-y sky...oh everything!

Here is Miss Pat Weaver, hooking on her basket project, seated next to Pat C. ~
with Miss Karen at the end o the table whipping her beautiful rug ~

busy busy busy.....

TOBY the Rooster-boy!!!
Toby actually did 'poop' in ~ sorry girls!

Here is Miss Margaret showing off her rug, a T. Benson design,...and

What a great way to spend the day and Karen's rug is wonderful.


Penny said...

Wow! I love that Gertie rug! What a fabulous job.... (not that I know how to hook a rug, but the colors are wonderful and the hooking looks perfect!!) I so wish I lived closer and could attend your classes....
Stitching in your happy chair with the woodstove going and your kitties at your side sounds like a perfect evening to me... Enjoy!!

I wish there was a shortcut to VA From WI! What a thrill to be in the same room with all that talent! Oh my.. Pat's hooking of Gertie and your design.... how could it not be awesome!!
I love Karen's rug also... fabulous design, wide hooking and colors!
I want to make a basket too... sniff...sniff!
Even sweet Peter... if you could make a pattern for him and his blueberry corn bread... we have not the gentleman in WI who could hold a candle to such gallantry!
