Don't you just love seeing what people are hooking at camp? Here are some pictures from the students in my class at Arrowhead Rug Camp in Duluth, Minnesota. First up is Miss Nancy with her Native American rug. Nancy had a picture of an embroidered piece and let me tell you the hooking had to be small to do this rug justice! And I'm not a fine hooker but Nancy schooled me on the art of fine hooking.
Nancy was a character and kept calling Peggy.. Pegachontas. So when we had show and tell of our rugs, Peggy played the part and surprised Nancy with her rendition of the Native American princess.
This is the other rug Nancy was working on during camp.
Peggy was working on a Magdalena Briner rug. Isn't is fabulous?
Here is a closeup of her horse.
Prudence was also working on the same rug. Isn't it interesting how two rugs can look so different? Prudence's rug is awesome as well.
Here are few closeups of Prudence's horses.
Anne was working on my Lazy Sheep pattern and was playing with directional hooking in the sheep.
The colors aren't doing justice to this rug. It is great.
Jackie was working on this flower rug and the colors are just terrific. The background is a great deep purple and blue.
Love Kathy's rug. The wools, mainly her stash, were so yummy. We had a lot of fun playing with textures in this rug. The colors in the rug are much more muted in real life and not so bright.
Her mother in law, Pat was hooking a rendition of the an antique rug. Pat was having fun hooking with lots of textures. She would want me to make sure you know that she is changing the bright white in the door. The left corner of this rug was rather bare so we added the sun to the left corner of the rug.
And last but not least....fitting since this rug featured the hind end of the circus animals...... is Jackie's rug. Jackie is a fellow Michigander hailing from Traverse City. This is a fun rug and Jackie was having fun hooking it.
Unfortunately, I missed a few of the rugs in my class. Dawn was hooking the most amazing lion rug. Sue was going wild with a Halloween Pattern. Darlene was hooking a cute little frog rug and Nancy and I were learning about value in the floral rug she was working on. They were all terrific rugs as well and I'm bummed I missed taking a picture of them.
Thanks for stopping by, Maria
