San Antonio class part 2

Here is part 2 of my pictures from my San Antonio class....enjoy. 

Anne asked me to designed a Halloween rug with the characters depicted in the picture below. She had hooked Halloween Hooligan for one of her adult children and wanted a similar rug for another child. 
Her characters turned out darling! Don't you just love the stripes on the little pumpkin guy's shirt? I can't wait to see this rug finished. 

She too played with the Sari ribbon on the witches cape and it turned out perfectly. Check out the nose of the witch....we needle felted it to give it more height and texture.
Darlene had the most wonderful pieces of Sari ribbon that she was using in her Tumbling Down rug. The eyes on the second pumpkin seem to be glowing from the buttons she chose. 
Isn't this rug wonderful and almost done! From the hooking, coloring and dimensional elements, this rug is perfection!  

Jane added sculpted amd french knotted berries to the pattern and they add so much. Click on the picture to see it up close.

The next two rugs are of my logo rug, Magdalena's crows.  Although the colors Jerry and Robin chose were similar in color, the values were very different and it really made them look different.  I love both of them! 

Jerry's rug........

Robin's Rug......

Rayna also was working on my Primitive Flower basket rug like Jane and having fun making the dimensional flowers.  The stripes in her flower pot are a fun way to add interest to a motif.  Isn't it interesting how two rugs can look so different? 

Cathy was working on my Freida the Friendly witch pattern and she was fancying up Ms. Freida. From the orange wool and mohair yarn for hair, quilled eyes, to the awesome border she was adding to the pattern, this rug is going to be wonderful when completed! 

Sue was working on a pattern she had in her stash. We had a lot fun working on this rug didn't we Sue? Lol!  This is the perfect size rug to turn into a pillow by adding proddy to the edges in white, blue and red. 

Karen was working on my ATHA pumpkin runner and was having a great time playing with color. She too was using the glitter wool in her background. (I just received some of they wool if anyone is interested in it) The colors she chose for rug scream fun, fun, fun to me.

Paula's dimensional flowers were also turning out terrific. Although the dimensional flowers look like they are proddied, they are not. There were made using my "cheater method"! 

And here is a picture of all the lovely ladies in the class!   Stay tuned for more pictures from this camp. There was a rug show and I'll show you them in another post. Til next time, Maria
