Here is Joan's rug she is trying to get finished for her sister's wedding in October. I say she will have it done by the end of the week! It is called Stella Hay Rex by Lib Calloway. It is 43"x73" done in an 8 cut on Linen. Isn't it gorgeous?
Below is a picture of Joan being silly behind Margaret .
Everyone else is behaving themselves and are busy getting to work. But seriously, this is the way it was all day. A lot of laughter and carrying on.
Ok, more carrying on..... Here is Becky wearing my prize I won for being the Happy Hooker, along with some gorgeous hand dyed wools by Joan. I had the most points in a paper we filled out asking all kinds of questions. If I didn't have Colonial Day to make all those rugs for, I don't think I would have won. I think those points put me over the top...
Ok, and here we are back to being serious and working again....
Now I will show just some of the rugs that were either finished or were being worked on. I didn't post a few of them because I didn't have their permission, and you never know if they are going to enter them somewhere and if there are restrictions or not. A couple of the girls were working on an apple challenge. They looked really good, but can't show ya lol.Here is Joanne's rug
Here is Katie's Fish and cat
Ok, back to some more pictures.....Here is Kim working on a wonderful piece
Here is Margarets rug
And here is Deloris' rug.
And here is what I got done yesterday. I was able to finsh the outside and inside of the pomegranate. See how different Janice's and mine are? I love seeing them together!!! I sure do have a way to go to catch up with her....
So that was my day. Not enough words to describe what a wonderful hook-in that Joan puts on. I wish I would have taken more pictures. Again... I have to learn to be more observant and just snap, snap away. Joan's birthday isn't until next Sunday, so I just want to put a big SHOUT out to her..... Happy Birthday Joan! And thanks for a GREAT day!! (I know, I know, I'll see you Friday at dye group. But it was still fun saying it here LOL!!)
Happy Fall Everyone!!
