Every Tuesday is an open hooking day at the Moose River Rug Hooking Studio. I went over late this morning to join in and to try to absorb whatever information I could glean from the very talented hookers in our area. All the gals were so helpful and very giving of their knowledge and information.
Many of the gals bring baked goodies and there is always fresh coffee and tea served.
I’m thoroughly enjoying myself as I knew I would. This is Diane and she designs as she goes. If you like the scrappy style, you’d L-O-V-E this rug! Notice her basket of precut strips on the floor beside her? That’s all she uses when she makes her rugs.
Bette is a wonderful hooker and has been so helpful and encouraging. Her work is exquisite. Look at the gradation of shading on the leaves.
How cool is this Santa?
And here’s what I’ve done so far.
I’m starting out slowly and the design I’m working on is a relatively simple one but I’m learning and loving it! Now I only wish that there were more hours in a day in order to accomplish everything that I want and would like to do.
