More Lakeside Rugs ~

More of the Lakeside rugs.  As I've said before, this was one talented group of hookers.


Deb's rug started in the Ali Strebel class at Cape May.  

Another rug using Ali's techniques.  I believe this is not-from-Louisville Sharon's project.

Pure Joy is Timeless was the theme of this year's retreat.  A number of people were hooking a clock.  Sue's red numbers were being re-hooked in gold.

Deb finished the hooking and just needs to "finish" it and put in the clockworks.

Val was SO CLOSE but was just a few worms shy of finishing and nothing found was a good match.

I finished my Polly Minick whale except for the canton.  I hadn't thought to bring the wool with me.

Thankfully upon my return home, I was able to find the wool (nothing short of a miracle) and finish it up.  Of course it still needs steaming and binding.

I also hooked this Heavens to Betsy style pumpkin using hand torn strips.

I even started on my Star Rug Company Santa and sheep rug I've had for several years.

You can spot Maria's sheep a mile away.  She has such a distinct style that is F-U-N.

I can't believe I sat with friends Melissa and Bobbie for three days and did not get a picture of their rugs.  So sorry ladies.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)


  1. Oh my! There are some lovely rugs there!
    Thanks so much for sharing the pictures.
    Love your whale rug!

  2. I so enjoy you taking us along ...inspires me to start even more projects.

  3. Your Polly Minick turned out beautiful. So glad you could fine the right wool to finish off.

    Wow, a lot of nice rugs. I always love coming along to take a peek. I've been looking in my rug magazines for inspiration but I think that I'm so focus on finishing digging out all my thousands of ceramic molds that that they can be taken away that I can't get focused on a design.


  4. Evening Lauren, love those rugs, the Autumn leaves is wonderful. Also great job on the whale and sweet pumpkin.Blessings Francine.
