Here is a Sneak Peak of a rug I'm working on for Tyler

I'll be teaching in Tyler, Texas at Star of Texas rug camp and am in the process of hooking a large flower rug, Tyler Flower Basket. Flowers are not something I hook very often, so I thought I would expand my horizons with this rug. It is going to be a large rug.....30 x 30. I'm not yet finished but here is a little snippet for you to see.

The next picture is my new lion pattern. Yes, I was playing again with new techniques. I love the mane on this guy. It looks like proddy but I did it with my hook. I also did the wrapped wool technique for his eyes and beaded around the outside. I think I'll make this into a pillow.

I was playing in photobucket and came up with this picture. I'd like to hook a rug like this some day.

Please stop back as I have some other rugs to show you from my class in Alabama and a cool butterfly rug that my friend Holly hooked. Maria

The flower rug looks like a gorgeous winner to me, Maria! Love the pumpkin one from the previous post too! I'll keep a check on your website, to see when the patterns become available...

Maria, I can't wait to see more of the Tyler floral. I love to hook florals, with so much inspiration right out my back door in the flower gardens.
xo,

What a wonderful class filled with new hooking stitches and techniques. I'll send you a pic of my jack o lanterns just as soon as I finish hooking the rug!

You are so great to work with, and the rugs you color planed will be wonderful. Hope to see you at Sauder next August 2011! Hugs!
