Here are some of the great rugs the girls were working on:
Becky finished hooking this wonderful cabin with proddy flowers. The strips are all hand cut at 1". She started this large rug with Betsy, from Heavens to Betsy.
Georgeanna started this rug last year at Caraway with Anita White. I just love the colors in it. It is perfect!
And Nancy almost finished this gorgeous pineapple rug that she had started in a workshop with Eric Sandberg in January. I love the way each pineapple is a tiny bit different. And the striking red/orange
fabric is actually paisley. The pattern is by Sheri Bennett.
Diana continues to work on her interesting Family rug, which can be viewed two different ways.
Kathie made great progress on her rug for her new bathroom. It is a pattern by Eric Sandberg, started in his class in January. Great rug!
Sheri drew her own pattern and pulled from her wormbag to make this visually appealing rug. She dislikes how close the border is to the body of the rug and plans to rework that. As always, Sheri's color choices are exceptional.
Katie drew her own pattern and started hooking these cheerful little birdhouses. I love her color choices.
Mary worked on this adorable Lori Brechlin design. She has the cutest bunny face, don't you think?
Robin was hard at work on these sweet little pictorials. She is making fourteen of them for a friendship block exchange!!!!!!
Deste started this handsome creature recently at Barb Carroll's.....it is one of her new designs. Deste really stuck with it and got lots of hooking done. Everyone was in love with her background choice and the colors in her horse.
Rhonda got tapped to do this rug for Teacher's Workshop this year. As you can see, it is 20" x 30". She started it on Friday and got this much done......using a size three cut. Her hooking is so perfect it looks like velvet.
I finally finished Semper Fi by Polly Minick. I had ordered it several years ago, and started it a few months ago. It is ready to bind!!!
Georgeanna and I both celebrated birthdays over the workshop weekend and were pleasantly surprised with our own individual birthday cakes and a little impromptu party. And, no, I am not sharing our ages :-))
As I am sure you can tell, it was a great weekend, and I am already looking forward to going back in the Fall.
The beautiful Smoky Mountains.
