March Rug Hooking

Three of us met in Shell Wyoming on the 19th and again in Cody at the Library on the 26th. Patty, Carol and I had such a good time sharing ideas, life stories, and just plain having fun.

Debra Inglis is still in Texas but Woolley Fox had her finished rug in their Newsletter. This is Gilmore 1839. It is one of the rug designs taken from a woven coverlet, I am always in love with the way Debra colors her rugs. We are all learning so much about textures from her. 

 Here my Lincoln Bag is almost finished being hooked. I am now done with it and it's ready to be sent to Down Home Leather to be made into a bag. They do such an amazing job. I can't wait to see it finished. I changed one element of the design. I don't know why I can't do a pattern without changing something.
 Carol Messerli finished her flowers and fruit mat. She really had a challenge whipping the curved edge but she did a beautiful job.
Patty Tyrrell hooked the rooster from Judy Carters, Hooking Animals book. The background is all Patty's design. I just love how it turned out! When she was taking strips out of the rooster and redoing them her husband said, "How many time are you going to pluck that chicken?"

We have all moved on to other projects so next month will be full of surprises.
