SO MUCH talent at the rug show at Cedar Lakes rug retreat. I managed to take pictures of most of the rugs but may have missed a few.
The background on the above rug was so interesting.
One of my favorite rugs.
Have you heard of the Orphan Train? I had not. From Wikipedia ~ "The Orphan Train Movement was a supervised welfare program that transported orphaned and homeless children from crowded Eastern cities of the United States to foster homes located largely in rural areas of the Midwest. The orphan trains operated between 1854 and 1929, relocating about 200,000 orphaned, abandoned, or homeless children." You can read more about it here.
The Gleaner. Hooked by my teacher, Cathy Stephan. Hard to get a good picture since it was flat on a table.
I wish the color had come out better in this picture. I am considering it for a class next year. Pattern by Maggie Bonanomi.
This was a really cool idea for a worm separator. If you're as old as I am, you will remember that coffee was purchased in tins and the lids had to be removed with keys. Six old coffee tins were screwed together and a handle added. I may be on the lookout for some :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
