Georgia Girls

There were several fellow Dogwood ATHA members in Jeanne Benjamin's class at Caraway this year, with each working on something very different.

Jeanne in front of some of her gorgeous and irresistible wool......a fair amount of which found its way home to Georgia, I might add.

Laura with her incredible American Fancies Rug (by Eric Sandberg).  This rug is an adaptation of an antique rug and was originally hooked by the late Nancy Thompson.

Barbara came prepared to hook a turkey and then found this wonderful Welcome rug in Jeanne's patterns and couldn't resist.  I love her wonderful prim style and colors.

Mary worked on this great sampler and got all of this done in a four cut!!!

Deste was working on this great Shaker Village...........little did she know she would spend most of the week hooking windows!!!

Diane was working on this beautiful Fall New England pictorial from New Earth Designs.  The colors are wonderful, and I love the church.

Kathie worked on this stunning peacock by Pris Butler.  It is a gift for her husband.  

Can you believe how much we all got done???  Wish you could see these in person.  The photos don't do them justice.

Today I spent the day with my fourteen year old grandson, Robert, and his mom, my eldest daughter, Christi.  We had a great lunch at Nico's in Hogansville and then did some antiquing in Hogansville, Woodbury and Newnan.  Robert was great.....who would have thought he would enjoy this.....and got the buy of the day, a WWII Japanese bayonet.  Doing his due diligence, he researched his treasure on line and found that it was, indeed, not a WWI bayonet as tagged, but an unusual WWII Japanese one.

A day making memories with daughter and grandson.
A sweet old dog snoozing in my chair.

Take care,

  1. Those ladies are working on some very ambitious rug projects. Wish I could see the finished product as they look very interesting.
