Life has been pretty dull lately with not a lot going on ~ creatively or otherwise :( I finished hooking my arrow and will share once the backing is on.
Next up on the frame is a challenge rug for our guild, Crooked River Rug Hookers (CRRH). We are a new ATHA guild, having just formed last summer and we already have 49 members. Northern Ohio is a mecca for hookers. We are a west Cleveland guild but have members from a large area. The Cuyahoga River runs through Cleveland and in to Lake Erie and is known as the crooked river.
For our challenge, we were given the theme "crooked river" and we could draw up any pattern we wanted. Not having that creative mind, I was totally stumped so guild president Heidi (Wool Nuts) drew a pattern for me. She knew it could not be modern or abstract or detailed and needed to be hooked with mostly an 8 1/2 cut or larger. This is what she came up with. Should be fun to hook.
Yesterday was guild, and here are a few rugs that were shared. So much talent!
Connie (Wool Yankers) is such a talented (and FAST) hooker. This is a rug designed from a friend's business card (top right of the picture) that is to be his wedding present.
Another of Connie's rugs. This one is HUGE and the way it was sitting on the table, I only got part of the rug. It is hooked in a 3 to an 8 cut.
The next two rugs are Donna's. In person, they are much more muted. She is one of the "dirtiest" hookers I know :)
This reminds me of the picture I posted on my last post :)
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
