Well the evening was a blast. Went boating, tubing and swimming in the lake. Then a super meal (mostly NOT cooked by me!). Wendy brought along the rug that she designed in a class we took in May with Jule Marie Smith on colour and borders. The rug itself she hooked in a class taught by Elaine Copeman at Trent School of Rughooking – Paisley. It is a beautiful rug and I am posting it and a picture of Wendy and my sister Di. The photo of the rug does not do it justice but will give you an idea. Jule Marie taught us about borders and one of the things she taught us was that borders do not have to be square or rectangular – they can be any shape you want; they don’t have to be all the way around a rug either – one or two or three sides are fine. They should relate to the centre of your rug in design and colour though so that there is continuity. It was a great class and we have all been applying what we learned in our rug designs. Once I get a picture of Donna’s and some of the others from that class I will post them as well.
