Good Morning Friends & Folk!
I found this in my mailbox yesterday ~
my ATHA publication
this issue is chock -full of Rabbits and Celtic designs in time for Spring
in beautiful color photographs ~
the publication has come a long way since I first joined way back when I lived in CT…
so 'put together' and easy to read now!
|A T H A ~ Association of Traditional Hooking Artists|
... while drooling over some of the most wonderful rugs
and dreaming about visiting all of the shops, shows and camps in their advertisements,
I turned the page and literally stumbled when I saw this!
"Be Still My Heart" design
(adapted by Spruce Ridge Studios for Notforgotten Farm)
this B E A U T Y was hooked by
Marguerite Evans of Nome, TX
and color-planned by Diane Stoffel
|oh my stars!!|
the article includes how they added different hooking techniques such as
wool-beading (collar & border)
and how to do a picot-edge (heart)
also how to incorporate plaids into your rugs for movement and texture…
I think Marguerite did a FABULOUS job, don't you agree??
Thank you Marguerite
for wanting to hook my little girl,
...you made her come to life with your hands!
and Thank you to Kris Miller (www.SpruceRidgeStudios.com)
for always doing a spectacular job on adapting my doodles for me!
I'll be working away on 'stuff' for Rug Fest the rest of this week ~
come on out & see me there on Saturday!!
