Some rug camps are more special than others. My week with Lucille was very special. I had a great roommate (Pam Alexander and I have been staying together at Sauder for the last 13 years), I had a great teacher, Lucille Festa, whom I consider a friend and I made a real rug hooking break through. What could be better? Oh yeah, pie! Yes, the peach pie was in season.
My personal goal was to hook with a color I don’t use very often – blue and to make it look old. I love how it came out and it hooked up very quickly.
I was visiting the room upstairs where the students were hooking geometrics. I was intrigued but not enough to get the ruler out. Since I finished Minna’s Roses at the end of the second day, I drew the outline for another stair riser and began hooking without a pattern. I just barely got that one done before the class ended, but I forgot to take a photo! I am currently out of town at another workshop so I will post the photo as soon as I get home. I will have much to tell you about this week’s unusual workshop.
