Caraway Rug School

Last week was my tenth trip to Caraway Rug School in North Carolina. It is always a great week, and this time was no exception. Many thanks to Eric Sandberg, all of the camp staff and Tricia Travis, teacher extraordinaire.

The rug show was exceptional and I want to share a part of it with you. I will do my best to credit when possible....some I just can't remember and can't read the tags.

This gorgeous rug was by Jan King. Wonderful detail and color choices. 

Mary Pasquerette  hooked this lovely rug, Porter's House, by Norma Batastini.  Just love the pink hills.

Nada Lind hooked the same pattern, different colors. Her house just glows.

Wish you could see the detail of this wonderful rug...a depiction of Charleston. It is an original design and was hooked by Kathy Cowart.

This clever rug is by Tricia Travis, my teacher.

Love this jolly Santa.....don't know who created him.

Another great pattern by Norma Batastini. Unsure of the hooker.

Hall of Justice, designed and hooked by the talented Diane Gill.  The background technique adds tremendous texture to this rug.

Merry Christmas, an adaptation of an antique postcard by Tricia Travis.  Such beautiful, soft colors.

Charming little landscape hooked by Tricia Travis to show that you can use textures effectively to create these small pieces.

This is probably enough for tonight. More later.

Take Care,
