BEGINNER CLASSES ~ ~ ~




 

Kathy and sisters, Stephanie and Heather ~ happy hookers ~ all came to hook this week!  I had to remove the picture because it was huge!!!!!!!!  Blogger is trying to drive me crazy  ~ and believe me it's a short ride!!!








Wednesday, two new hookers and one almost new hooker spent the day in my hooking room/studio. I love the word studio!! This was Kathy's start on a cute sheep!




















Heather's crow! Sonny built she and her husband a house 19 years ago ~ a colonial reproduction like ours ~ the perfect backdrop for hooked rugs!












The sisters came back for more instruction yesterday. Heather's crow was blending in a little too much with the background, so I had the bright idea to hook in an outline of hand dyed wool yarn ~ I love it when I have a good idea!!




















Stephanie is hooking a sheep, too! It was really a fun two days ~ I love teaching enthusiastic people and helping them find their way to a creative new hobby!!

Lots going on here ~ I've decided we are way too busy for people our age!!

Happy Friday!!

I can tell those girls are having a great time in your studio and have been bitten by the hooking bug.

I'm so glad that you could post even though Blogger is giving you issues.

have a great week Alice.

Oh no! Blogger has gone rogue!
Geez, I hope your blog gets back to normal in the near future.
Anyway, I loved the hooking pictures. Large pictures of happy hookers are just fine.

I don't doubt for one instant that they have caught the bug from their wonderfully infectious teacher.
They will remember these first pieces forever, no matter how many others they create. You go girl!!

Alice,
You are much braver than I am to keep blogging. I would have given up already but you keep chugging on. Of course you have a much more exciting than mine. Please keep it up! I would miss you bunches.
