This is probably one of my favorite rugs in the show!  Anne-Marie Littenberg is the artist and it definitely is very artistic!  It's hooked in yarn ~ sparkly yarn!  The color tones of this rug are just perfect to me!  

The beach scene also speaks to me ~ these two rugs look lovely side by side!

I took 45 photos that day and tried to get as many in a shot as possible so that you could see as many as possible!  I'm not a great picture taker but you get the idea of the artistry created in wool!  The wolf has several wolves hooked into the background and fur of the main character!  Very skillful hooking, to say the least!

These four rugs were magnificent, too! I don't know the artists but I do think that these first 3 photos in this post, were all Celebration winners ~ someone correct me if I have given wrong information.  Such detail ~ look at that little boy at the beach ~ and the grandma picking apples ~ the hooking is so fine that they could be photos!  I love them all!

This footstool with it's own mermaid greeted us as we entered!  The hooked footstool always intrigues me ~ maybe someday!

The color in the rug really calls to me ~ for those who don't know me, orange is my favorite color!!  I would consider this a bed rug ~ it was sizeable and beautifully hooked!

There was a holiday challenge, I believe and these rugs were displayed in that area!  I love the little girl riding a turkey ~ someone in one of the classes was hooking this one as well.  Maybe we'll see it in the show next year!

This little gathering of spooks was hooked by Kathy Wright and her girlfriends, Donna and Ellen ~ and another gal that I don't know.  I was trying to figure out how to smuggle a couple of them out with me ~ but I thought better of it!  Cute display!

I have to apologize for the big spaces between paragraphs ~ Blogger and I have our problems ~ I got along much better with the old system ~ yikes! The more I move stuff around, the more I screw it up!!

Today, Luke and Luci and I went to see the "Nanny McPhee" movie ~ we all liked it! Doesn't take a lot to entertain me! If you have a young person in your life, take them to see this ~ it's pretty funny ~ warts and all!

Off to finish laundry and get things in order for the weekend. Tad's sitter is coming so I have to leave things orderly so she won't talk about me!! There are more photos ~ I'll try to get a post together for tomorrow!!

Those rugs are spectacular - the details and the shading - many look like photographs.
I am giggling about your comment on Tad's sitter. I do the same thing when the homecare workers are coming to sit with my Mom. I scramble around before tidying up just in case.

Thanks again for bringing Sauder to those of us who will never make it there. I loved the first Nanny McPhee movie and wish I had a younger one to see the latest with. It adds so much to the enjoyment. Hard to believe that's Emma Tompson, one of my favorite actors.
Thanks for sharing,
