SUNFLOWERS AND MORE…

Last week at guild we worked on sunflowers. I took along a few samples of some that I had made and everyone jumped in. Once they are done I hope to get a picture of the finished pieces but here are some pix of people at work.

At guild I was given the most wonderful gifts. These came in a bag with a wonderful vintage cashmere scarf in the most lovely soft beize and taupe colours and made in Germany!  Now that is a label to keep because hmmm not seen too often on clothing anymore! I do not think though that I can cut up this scarf although it would make the most lovely vintage rabbit! I think I will have to wear it for a few winters and THEN CUT IT UP! Check out the vintage bottle brush tree (yes it came that lovely faded green colour) that Wendy inserted into an antique door knob. I might have to leave this tree out year round – it is so beautiful. Wendy said I was an easy person to buy for – find junk and wrap it up and give it to me! I do know that at my local junk store they charge me extra for rust!

And now for a few pix of rugs completed by friends…first Andrea’s version of Alana Kapell’s Frog and Fishes (done all in yarns)…HPIM4330

and Bill’s Northern Sign of Spring – a wonderful pattern designed by Ann Hallett. Bill and I met last fall and he had  almost decided to give up on rughooking – I am soooooo glad he did not because I think this is an amazing first rug!!!… OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

  6. Spring must be just around the corner with the beautiful sunflowers and frog heralding it’s arrival; even the longjohns seem to be singing Alleluah! That is really thinking out of the (laundry) basket, I mean box.
