Library Hooking in August

We had such an amazing time hooking at the Library last Saturday. Faye is in Wyoming for a couple of months and she is such an inspiration to us all.  In her honor we tried to bring projects Faye hadn't seen yet so we had a lot of visitors to our little rug show.
This is one Faye brought. All she has left to do is finish binding! I can't remember how long ago she started it but it's almost finished now!
 This is one of Faye's designs. She changed some of her flower colors from her original colors and it's so perfect. I liked it before too.  Absolutely one of my favorites and she has designed a footstool cover to match!
 The center design of Faye's footstool is a Maggie Bonanomi design that Faye changed up a little and then Faye designed the picket fence around the bottom of the footstool. Absolutely stunning!
 This was a little rug Faye started years ago and finally finished. All it took for Faye to start hooking again was a new frame and friends to hook with!
 Notice Faye's footstool and my stool are the same pattern. I changed my house a little. I just love seeing two of the same patterns hooked differently.
 Here is my I've Got You My Prettie designed by The Old Tattered Flag.
 Debra finished her Close Enough For Jazz for her husbands drum room. It's just wonderful!
 Faye also designed this adorable log cabin and outhouse. The top comes off the cabin for storage. It is wood covered in hooking and wool. Of course we all wanted the directions! She still has a chimney to put on top of the roof and she has a wonderful fireplace on the side of the cabin.
 Here is another view of Faye's footstool. Notice the legs! She had her husband cut them from their own property. She is so creative!
 And here is the top view. This is the pattern from Cindi Gays Footstool Class online. It is a great class and a fun design.
 Here we are hooking, or should I say standing. I'm the only one sitting.

 And last but not least, we have Faye's two cats. A design by Barbara Brown. Absolutely one of my favorites!

We didn't get any pictures of the rugs we were working on. I think everyone was too excited to see all the wonderful projects Faye had brought. I can't believe how blessed we are to have such a great group of hookers.

Next month we will meet two different times. On the 9th we will meet in Shell, WY at the Shell Church and on the 23rd we will meet at the Park County Library.  I know it will be a blast!


  1. I love seeing those footstools! Our Guild is learning to do those at our meeting next month and I'm so, so sad that I will be in California visiting family! Argh! Maybe someone can give me a remedial lesson after-the-fact! LOL

  2. You can join a class online with Cindi Gay. It is a very inexpensive class and the pattern comes with the class. She designed it for an Ikea stool, which I used and have ordered two more, but Faye made her own for a shorter footstool. I love the Ikea because it's great for extra seating.
