So not much hooking being done these days!

Last week at guild we had a speaker, Christine Gibson, who did a great presentation on various backings and the pros and cons of each. Very informative. Then she pulled out a few of her absolutely wonderful rugs and her gorgeous wool (superlatives I know but too true!). Here are some pix of some of the show and tell that day. I apologise for the grainy quality of the photos – must be those new rechargeable batteries! Or do I just need a new camera?

Saturday was the hookin at the Olde Forge in Ottawa – about 90 hookers with wonderful rugs for show and tell. I did not take pictures this time but you should be able to see pix taken by the official camerawoman on their website soon.

My friend Liz just sent a pix of her completed Canadiana Challenge rug that she started at our Iawah retreat and and finished for her granddaughter Liberty. What a fun fun rug!

  1. Wow some of these geometrics make my piece look like a mistake. Never mind I intend to improve.

  2. Oh Trish, your geometric rug is fabulous. Love your creation and be inspired to create another when looking at all those other wonderful rugs. I especially love Christine’s turtle rug…that a show stopper for sure.

  3. Love to see what everyone is working on! It must be “Show and Tell” week, as I’ve done exactly the same thing on my blog from the Sunshine Rug Hooker’s meeting in Orillia. Wonderful work everyone.
