Cedar Lakes Rug Camp has been around for many years, but this year was the first time I got to experience it ~ and I had such a good time I've already signed up for next year.
Cathy Stephan of Red Barn Rugs was my teacher of choice and a GREAT choice it was. I highly recommend her if you ever get the opportunity to be in a class with her. She has so many wonderful patterns to choose from. I had narrowed it down to three patterns before camp and she brought them all with her, along with her completed rugs. Local hooker Val and I both decided to hook her Floral Scroll Runner (16" x 50"). It is the long, narrow one on the left.
More of Cathy's rugs. The lighting in the room wasn't the greatest - for hooking or for pictures.
A hooked "braided" edge. I need to try this some day.
On my hooking bucket list. The original was hooked by John Filker, a man from my hometown of Amherst, OH.
Rather than try to hook the dots representing stars, Cathy ties a knot.

I love how she hooked her last name initial in to the rug
Melissa got her rug done :)
Val's Floral Scroll Runner. She got so much more done than I did!!!
My runner. I normally don't do much reverse hooking, but that darn star flower on the right was tweaked three times.
Our class. That is Cathy seated on the left.
More to come.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
