Maggie Bonanomi taught a class Thursday and Friday. You had your choice of hooking the project
or doing it in applique.
Both choices were wonderful. I am so sorry I did not sign up for the class.
Saturday, Melinda and I attended the hook in, hosted by Ali Strebel along with Maggie.
It's so ironic. I can go to an event here at home and not know a single person. I go to a hook in 200 miles from home, and know 8 or 10 people. I believe a fun time was had by all.
Pictures from the throw down. I can't believe I missed taking a picture of one of my favorite rugs. I hope you enjoy the show.
First some of the hooked pieces.
|I think this is my favorite Maggie pattern.|
So many examples of Maggie's applique patterns were displayed, done by many talented hands.
This pattern came home with me, along with some of Ali's chunky wool yarn that is the best for whipping an edge and a couple pieces of her hand dyed linen to use as the base for applique projects (in my dreams . . . lol).
I spotted these wonderful rusty pots in front of the salvage store just down the street from the hook in. The middle one in the back row came home with me and the one to the right went home with Melinda. I think the two of us could get in lots of trouble together :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
