For Saundra ~

I don't want Saundra to have a meltdown while waiting for a post about my Sally Kalin class, so here you go, girlfriend 😁

Sally was a great teacher and the three days flew by.  She is giving us a lesson on different finishing techniques.

Here are projects that were being worked on in class.

I bought this pattern at Cedar lakes rug camp.  This makes me want to hook it!

Two people were hooking the sheep rug . . . one with dark sheep and one with light.

These were the widest hand torn strips I had ever seen.  She said it did not bother her to pull them.  It would have just about killed me!  A proddy border was added.

Saundra . . . this is the Kris star technique you shared on your blog.  It worked out well on the rug.

If my memory serves me correctly, this was being hooked in a 6 cut.  She is a fast hooker!

Two others had to leave early so I did not get pictures of their projects . . . and they were hooking the same pattern.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs 😊

OMG, I had to tie my hands behind my back to not email you and ask "where the hell is the blog post?" Everything you posted is beautiful and I WILL be visiting again and probably commenting again. Glad you are back home so we can verbally abuse one another again. HUGS

Wow...Some beautiful designs...and wonderful hooking! I love them all...but that village one with all the buildings really intrigues me. And I have wanted to do that whale rug for a long time now. But I have sworn off whales. 😳 LOL on the meme.... I have a shirt with that on it. ~Robin~

Wow there is some kind of eye candy. I am glad you enjoyed your class.

Great eye candy. Thanks for sharing.

Saundra said...

Yep, Kris' #9 cut stars work perfectly. I'm now putting the Deer rug closer to the top of the list for my next rug as both look wonderful. Might come back to visit again..much to your displeasure I'm sure, LOL.

Wow, some beautiful rugs. I love those florals. I'm not crazy about the very wide cut as I think it would be a dust trap, at least in my house.

Thanks for sharing. I'm glad you got to get away to be with one of your favorite teachers.

Right now I'm dealing with the Farm Income tax. Not a fun thing to do.
Hugs, Julia

If I'd known what you were sharing, I'd have had a meltdown with Saundra. These are gorgeous. Lucky you!!!
