I just returned from class at Barb Carroll's house. It was so much fun! I go with a great group of gals and the instruction from Miss Barb was top notch as usual. I'll share photos from the class in another post but I wanted to show you a couple of fun "almost completed" pictures from Cathy. Cathy works at Woolley Fox and brought some rugs to show us. The first one is a new pattern called Peeps.
Aren't those purple peeps the best?
Look at all the different wools used in the bodies. Cathy explained that she had chosen all the wool for the peeps and when she met with Barb, they changed it up a bit. The wool she had chosen for the peeps' bodies now were the feet. Love all those purple peeps with their colorful feet! The background wool is wonderful too. The pictures simply do not do it justice!
And have you ever seen a turquoise chicken? Who cares????? It rocks the rug. Thanks for sharing the rug with everyone Cathy.
OK on to the giveaway.........
I had planned on sending an item for the auction at the ATHA Biennial and totally forgot. So instead what I have decided to do is give a one year membership to ATHA to a lucky someone.
Now for those of you who are not members of ATHA let me give you some reasons that you may want to join:
1. The newsletter is terrific. I just received mine today and it is full of articles, ads and wonderful color pictures. The newsletters are published bimonthly.
2. Every newsletter contains events and list all the ATHA groups throughout the country.
3. The Biennial Convention is awesome as you can see from all the pictures posted over the blog.
4. Two Regional Rug Schools and global workshops.
5. Regional Rug Shows
6. Regional Rug Challenges
7. Over 70 Local ATHA chapters
8. Largest Lending Library of Hooking Related Resources
