This was mine! For the hill, I used dyed roving cord from Ali and needle felted it onto the linen. The windows and door are needle felted over the hooked house ~ much easier than hooking around a hooked window strip. Of course, that's only appropriate for a rug that will hang ~ not a floor rug, for sure!! The hearts and leaf motifs are also felted and the background is a dyed piece from Nola Heidbreder that I purchased at Sauder. I love it!! I'll finish this soon ~ could have finished it this week if I didn't wander and visit so much!
This is friend MJ's version of Karen's pattern ~ very nice start!
Friend Charisse designed and finished her Blue Moon during the class!! She is a dedicated hooker!
Friend Pam ~ YOU DID AWESOME!!!! Sometimes she's a wanderer (it was me this time)and I like to tease her but no teasing this time! Very proud of you, Pammie!!
New friend Valerie hooked a key on her Welcome mat ~ she has been a long time customer and we had a good time getting acquainted in Tipp City!
Marketa and I have been at several classes in Tipp together and she hooks beautifully! So glad she joined us for dinner ~ we had some fabulous food in this historic town!!
I believe this is Deb's version of a pattern you'll see often!
As you can see, it was popular! I think this is Jennifer McKelvie's ~ a very nice gal indeed!
This lady did her design and her colors were very Karen Kahle-like!
One of the gals who came clear from Nova Scotia to hook with us, hooking a brick house for her son!
Friend Sue really got a lot done ~ her hooking is so neat!
Another lady who hooked her own design ~ love the fleece sheep!
Paula from Nova Scotia finished her mat, too! That's what happens when you are focused!!
Another finished mat ~ love her background!
Last but not least, Miss Tippy in her new home!! Karen brought dolls from her artist friend, Olive Rose and this one came home with me! Friend MJ took home her companion, Tipp ~ I'll post his picture next time!!
Of all the rugs that I didn't get a picture of was friend Heidi's!!! We went together and she has a great start on her lake trailer. She packed away her rug while I was flitting about and as I'm going thru all of these, I discovered I didn't have hers ~ you'll love it! I'm going to go get a photo of it this week!! So glad Heidi came ~ we haven't been hooking together in a long while ~ it was good to have her along ~ gave me someone to talk to in the middle of my sleepless nights ~ she's not a good sleeper either! I'll be calling you, Heidi!!
We had a great time ~ there is more to post but I must go for now! Very inspiring three days that had been prefaced with four days in Ligonier for me! Long, fun week of rug hooking!! Woo hoo!!!
