A sad goodbye to my friends in Seville this past Thursday as we break for the warm summer months filled with gardening, reunions, and family vacations. Rug hooking for many takes a backseat during the warmer months. Can't say the same for myself as the wheels in my head always seem to be spinning planning our next group project or event.
Enclosed are pix from our Thursday night works. We made artist trading cards and many hope to have them done in time for the Kingwood Show June 18 this year and ready for trading. Each designed their own cards so they are all one of a kind.
In the works, Jacquie has offered her cottage at Lakeside, OH for another fall weekend getaway. Last year we had such a good time painting wool and learning about dyeing wool. Not to metion the great fellowship of just being together. This year we will work on patterns by Deanne Fitzpatrick.She has agreed to design one especially for us to incorporate a fall theme. Her blog and website are just delightful and I hope you can capture a moment out of your busy days to log on. I find myself rested after reading her words, Not only does she have a gift for her hooking artistry but she has a gift for words. We are working on dates so stay tuned for Lakeside. This is a very reasonable getaway and peaceful since the vacationers for the most part have left the village.
Also I have completed the rug for Zoar Retreat scheduled for Oct 21 and 22, 2011. I chose buildings for my piece as you will choose for yours. Each rug will be individually drawn to suit and we will concentrate on pictorals and color. Email me or blog me for info if you would like to attend. Class is limited to 20 so sign up soon.
