More Pictures from Camp Punderson

Jan was working on my Lazy Sheep pattern and used plum colored wool
 for the face.   It was a great color with the dark purple background.
  For the curly cues on the sheep, Jan embraced the quilling technique and 
went to town with it.  What a great embellishment for the rug.

Marcia was working on this awesome witch and was way out of her color box.
She was such a trooper trying all kinds of new things in this rug.
 Don't you just love her flowing hair? Marcia attached
 Sahri ribbon for her hair and rather than hooking it, she 
let it flow to look like her actual hair.

Check out that nose.  We needle felted a wart onto it
 and attached black thread to it.  It looked like hair growing out of the wart.

Don't you love the spider? The body is needle felted and the
 legs were hooked with ribbon.  Love it!

Another shot of the spider.

Isn't Joann's rug terrific? Her flower basket looks old, old, old! 
 She was hooking this rug for a family member and was using
 wool from a brown tweed coat from the recipient's husband. 
This rug is going to be beautiful.

Rebekah was hooking my Mister Iggy pattern and did a great job. 
 She was sitting next to Liz in class who hooks with a wide cut and really high. 
By the end of class, Rebekah was hooking high and with a wider cut.  I love
it when people pick up new and different ways to hook while in class. Rebekah was so 
productive in class and started another rug. 

Shirley was working on a Folk Art Landing pattern and was
 hooking a diamond pattern into the background. What she doing
 with the background will make this rug stunning. 

Speaking of Liz, here is her big rug. It was a neat pattern that 
was broken up into sections.  We spent a lot of time finding the just
 the right wool for the sections.  By the end of the third day, we had 
the perfect wools and Liz was well on her way to finishing this rug.

Aren't the colors fab?

Liz if you are reading this blog, hook, hook, hook as I can't
 wait to see this rug fully hooked.

The last rug is Tami's cabin rug and can you believe that she is a fairly new hooker.
There are so many things that I love about this rug.  Look at her fire.  
It is amazing and was achieved with the most amazing piece of wool.  
We all encouraged her to send that wool to Betsy or Rebecca for milling.

And how about that frying pan with the eggs in it?  We needle felted the eggs into the pan.  

Thanks for stopping by and checking out these great rugs.  Maria

I am so sorry I missed you when I went to the Punderson rug show. I didn't know there were more classes upstairs.
You had some wonderful talent in your class!
Hugs :)

Thanks gals. It was a fun class and the students were terrific. When I saw on your blog you attended for the rug show, I was bummed that I didn't get to see you Lauren. Looks like you had a great time at your camp. Maria
