A change of pace

I meet with a rug hooking group every couple of weeks. It is so much fun to get together and hook, and talk. I somehow feel like I am part of a historic craft that women/men have done for over 100 years. Each of us have a different style, some traditional and some not. We exchange ideas about colors of wool, how to dye, where to get wool, and what our favorite tools are. We spend several hours together, sharing, and solving the problems of the world, of course!

This one is mine.

Here is one of Sharon's.

This one is Shirlee's. She prefers to hook in a quilting hoop.

...another one of Sharon's.

This one is Vickie's. Sharon designed this pattern. I'd like a pattern like this but the piece is so large, I'm afraid I'd never finish it.

And this one is Ann's. She finished it tonite.

Don't forget to click on photos to get them large to see all the wonderful details.
