April Rug Hooking in Cody, WY

Once again, three of us met at the Park Co Library for a fabulous day of hooking and laughter.
 Patty finished her Rooster and made him into a pillow. It is wonderful!
Patty and her husband belong to a group of Land Rover lovers. She drew one of her dogs driving the Land Rover and her other dog sitting in the foreground. I can't believe what a great job she did drawing this adorable story rug!
 Carol is working on her covered bridge. This is a really big rug! It would have been nice if she had gotten a picture with the rug pattern so she knew a little bit more about what to do but Carol is very good at knowing what she wants. She is doing a beautiful job.
 I finished my Flower Banner from Red Barn Rugs. It was SO nice to work with a size 8 after doing my last two rugs. I'd really like to try a REALLY wide cut at some point!
For now, I'm hooking Laszlo. The design is taken from a woven coverlet. I truly don't have a fetish about lions. I do, however, love this rug. I saw it finished when Debra Inglis was working on the binding when she was here last and I knew I had to hook it. At first I was going to copy hers, and then I decided that wasn't very nice and copied another colorway instead.

Laszlo is a pattern from Wooley Fox and there are supposed to be new designs from old coverlets coming out very soon! I can't wait!
