I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I normally do. The rug show is just overwhelming. A few more rugs to share.
Tish Murphy was a vendor at the show. She had done this take on Rosie the Riveter.
Tish then drew this pattern for a hooker in Wisconsin whose mom was a real Rosie during the war. She drew her likeness and added the silhouette of a warplane since the lady had riveted on such a plane.
I've seen this rug before, but this time I had an "aha" moment.
Don't the knees look like boobs?
Another Celebrations rug.
Not something I will ever hook, but I am in awe.
A couple punch needle pieces by the talented and so productive Jo.
There were many group exhibits displayed at the show. Here is the challenge from the Crooked River guild that I belong to.
That's my rug, top middle.
The paisley challenge from another guild I belong to, the Western Reserve Rug Hookers. I did not participate in this one.
The pinecone rugs were simply gorgeous.
The special exhibit was Maud Lewis. You can read more about her here.
These wooly pine trees were fun. One of these days I will get around to making one.
The felted animals were just unreal. What talent.
And the craziness continues. Yesterday was spent at the county fair in the morning and then a trip to the Cleveland Zoo in the evening for the Asian Lantern Festival. Very cool. Tomorrow it's a Rebekah L. Smith wool applique class (like I need another project!) and then Sunday I head to Millersburg, Ohio, for a 3 day hooking retreat. Just hooking, friends, lots of laughs I'm sure, a little wine, maybe some antiquing. Life is good.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
