What I've been up to.......

Hooking..... Creating new pieces for the creative workshop that Ali Strebel and I are teaching the first weekend of November in Ohio (  I designed 3 motifs and we will show students different ways to finish the rugs. Both Ali and I have hooked the motifs and don't you know, we each did something different for the finishes for each motif.  Students will certainly get a variety of finishes to choose.  I just love what I've come up with for finishes and Ali's finished projects are wonderful as well. For all you that have signed up, get ready to have some fun with the creative ways to turn ordinary motifs to extraordinary creations. I'll be sure to post pictures after class to inspire you all.   The picture below is an extra pattern for the students to hook.  We'll show them how to turn this into a needle/hook bag to store all their rug hooking supplies.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Maria

That is a fun piece and I can see you have been keeping busy. I want to do a small bag style as a christmas gift, so need to decide on a design and how i want to do it.

Sounds fun Maria! The little hook storing bag will be precious. I would love that! I know your students will be inspired by what you and Ali teach them. Hugs, Lori

Maria, will you be offering instructions for the little hooked bag project at some point in the future, after your workshop? I'm sure lots of folks like me would love that!
