Well I was having too much fun and doing too much hooking to spend much time even thinking about the blog for the past few days. I was at Jackye Hansen’s rug workshop up in Kennebunk Maine, with about 32 other devoted rughookers.
I took a few shots of rugs that were finished while at camp. This is Debby Palmer’s Moby Dick rug, done:
and after I finished my “Thy Friends” rug I showed you the other day, I completed my Nova Scotia lighthouse rug – yes, the one I showed you the sketches of in my recent post about computer programs:
I finished it in record time, but it helped that it was so small (12″x12″) and that we were at camp where you start hooking first thing in the morning, and… hook all day!
I was not organized enough to gather all the right names, home towns, pattern names of these next rugs – well really, I was just doing too much hooking! So consider these just a taste treat of the wonderful range of creative, colorful rugs that were emerging from the flying hooks at camp:
So it was bugs in rugs, cat rugs and dog rugs, a little punchneedle, a dash of Waldoboro, a taste of orientals, a smidge of florals, a bit of primitive, and everywhere, color, color, color! What a treat to spend five days with such talented rughookers!
Thanks so much to the talented and friendly Jackye Hansen, who organizes and arranges the camp, gives help whenever asked and makes friends wherever she goes. I am so proud of Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild for choosing Jackye as one of the Featured Artists at next October’s Hooked In The Mountains rug show!
