A.T.H.A. newsletter ~

Good Morning Friends & Folk!
another beautiful day here in Virginia...
sun & warm temps expected today ~ I am loving it!!!
I wanted to share my new
ATHA newsletter with you ~ I am a member of ATHA, region 3 here in VA,
((was a member of region 1 in CT))
(Association of Traditional Hooking Artists)

I am honored that so many of you enjoy my designs for rug hooking!!
and I'm especially thrilled when one of your adaptations of my designs makes it into a publication...
the following pics are of rugs that were taken at the 2011 Biennial
and are published in this issue:
a stunning cover (not my design) hooked by Cheryl D. Bollenbach
you can see my 'Glad Tidings' design
in the upper left hand corner of the left page, below:
it was hooked by Leanne Sitler and the pattern can be purchased at

the rug below is my
'Give Ye Thanks' pattern ~
it was hooked by Jan Winter and the pattern is also available from Kris at
I love how Jan hooked this, her colors are just beautiful!
Thanks to all of you who hook & share your work with us all :)

and, I just thought the picture, below, is so pretty...
the blue paint, the scrubbed top of my little table...
the way the sun touches the tulips in my little tin pitcher ~
Have a wonderful, simply peaceful day, my Friends!!!
blessings from the farm,
