it was s fun day ~
(even though I couldn't keep the fire going in the woodstove and it was a bit chilly in there)
*sorry about that*
Eretta & her grandaughter Madison are new to hooking ~
...she was very quick to learn how to handle the hook and wool and
began hooking a little heart design ~
no one ever wants their picture taken, but that doesn't stop me...
just look at this crew turning away from me!
|notice also, that Joan didn't get the memo to wear plaid?|
... just kidding, I just noticed that!
|Margaret working on the binding of her first rug ~|
|Pat working on her Bunny Trail needle punch...|
|Eretta working on basic hooking techniques ~ she did a great job!|
|Joan working on binding one of the MANY kits she has dedicated herself to finishing|
and we have faith in her that she will do just that.
|little Madison hooking on her heart ~|
I am making progress on the Scrap Cat purse....
|filling in the background ~|
|liking the darker background,...|
|adding some purple to the background ~ can you see it?|
|many different shades and values of greens used in the leaves of the plant ~|
3 different reds used in the bowl.
|there is some of that purple!! |
it's a dark value, but it's enough to break up the monotony of the mixed black background and outline...
plus a touch of purple is just plain fun!
