ATHA Membership winners!

Yes I said winners. I had my husband pick 4 numbers between 1 and 12 and he chose 3, 4,8 and 9. So the lucky winners are Linda, Laura, Gayle and Mary. Send me your mailing information to davemariab@sbcglobal.net and I'll submit it to ATHA. Thanks to all the participated!
Here are a few more pictures from the Star of Texas Camp. Debra was hooking my winterwalk pattern and did a great job with the colors in the rug.
Debra wanted to proddy the trees so rather than proddy the whole tree we did it spordically throughout the tree. We used a different technique to achieve the proddy in the trees. Since these trees are pine trees, we wanted them to have that feathery look that pines trees have. So Debra took a normal width of wool for proddy and after she proddy it into the foundation, she cut the strips fringing them to make it look like pine branches. It turned out great. Did you see the little red bird in the tree/ That is a needle felted bird. Too cool!
The next picture is of Charlotte's Guilford Runner, available through Woolley Fox. Charlotte had just had shoulder surgery and was such a trooper and hooked away on the rug. It turned out beautifully. The background wool, Heavens to Betsy, was my favorite. It instantly aged this rug. Charlotte made this rug as a wedding gift for her son who is getting married this week.
Linda Gartner hooked the next rug and did a great job. The colors she chose for this rug are Halloween colors but on the muted side. Just lovely. Check out the eyes of the pumpkin. She rolled circles for the eyes and added square buttons for more interest. Perfect!
Look for more pictures from camp in the next day or two. Maria

Love the rugs from the camp and great idea to proddy to get dimension for a tree.

Very clever to add proddy to the tree the way she did - I love it!
