New Rug Done!

This is a rug that I designed using a piece of paper folded like you are going to make a cut snowflake, but you draw your design instead of cut it out. That is how I got the flower, then I repeated the flower and drew the border. It wasn't the most fun finishing the rug, but well worth the extra effort. My friend Marion keeps calling it a jewel box, so I guess that is what I will call it.

Back From Nebraska

 I am back from Nebraska and thought I would share some pictures from the 2012 Nebraska Rug Hooking Retreat at Nebraska City, that I taught at last week. I was one of 4 teachers who were there. Janice does a great job of putting it on!

 Marie was working on a pattern from Shawn Williams called Sunday Social.

 Julie was working on a pattern by Threads That Bind called Sheep Weathervane.

 Above Karen was working on an antique adaption.

On the right Ginger was working on a pattern from Karla Gerard called Quaint Towne.

Marilyn was working on Poppies by Sharon Smith.

Linda was working on Wandering Vine by Rhonda Manley.

Elsie was working on a pattern called Amy's Day by Tammy Rice.
Linda was working on a pattern by Searsport called Paisleys.

Barbara was working on a pattern called Home Sweet Home from Rhonda Manley.

Dennie was working on
 Spot the Horse.

Jennifer was working on one that she drew! She was doing 9.5 cut on most of it!

Sue was working on a pattern from Woolley Fox called Farmyard Animals. Her background is going to be grape, won't that be fun!

Mary was working on a pattern called Carrot Top from Designs by Deborah.

Kasey was working on a rug called Posie Border by Rhonda Manley.

Deb was also working on Spot the Horse, so different than Dennies rug!

Some very talented ladies in my class, they all did a great job!!! Thanks for a great workshop!!

What to Call It?

I finished hooking this rug, 
but don't know what to call the pattern?
My husband said it looks like one of those
 cast iron cornbread pans!
This will be my last post for a few weeks. I am heading back to Nebraska on Thursday to teach at a workshop you can read about it here.
I am going to take a few extra days to go spend some time with my family and friends. I have not been back since moving to North Carolina,
 so it will be fun to go and see everyone. 
I will post pictures when I get back!
