I am happy to say that we have a few people who want to try purses and the workshop (or rather both of them!) are filled. I may do another in the summer when we can have lunch on the dock… Thank you to everyone who emailed and will be joining us.

In the meantime I have a few lovely rugs and punch needle pieces to share…

Toni’s version of Grandmother’s Flower Garden – I love how this turned out – done with mostly as is recycled (or up cycled) wool…

Shelagh found this lovely little rug in an antique store… and then hooked her own version…

Barbara’s lovely canola Quail… Holly is hooking my River Otters with some variations and I love the way this is turning out… and Sylvie sent me pix of her completed Swirl Trees (most of the flowers are done in silk fabric that Sylvie had left over from sewing projects!)… her punch needle Village Street (kits are available for this)…

and her Two Birds…

  1. I defiantly want to take the workshop. Summer would be fun.

    I love the rug Grandma’s Garden. My Mom hooked – my sister was the lucky one who ended up with it. Their was a pattern in her stash so I may have to make one for myself!

  3. Hi Loretta,  Please add my name for the next purse workshop.  This workshop looks lovely! Do you have a cancellation list for this class in April?  If yes, could you keep my name in mind, just in case there is a cancellation. Thank you. Jo-Ann Vargas

    He who hesitates…. Hi Loretta, my new CANADIAN friend:)!!!! So, I see both are filled now. Any way we can do this thru the mail?? Without The 4 hour car ride???? >

  5. Hello Lorette,

    I came straight home from rug-hooking to register for your purse project for April 9,2018. I even had a ride to find you with Bev.

    It wasn’t to be. Put me on the waiting list for your next purse workshop.

    Bev Jones brought my dyed pieces in today.(She was kind enough to take mine home with her and put them through her spinner and dryer

    for me.) The pieces are gorgeous. We have to do this more often! I really had a good time at the dying workshop. You are a very good teacher.

    Well must get back to my curling. N.S. just scored.

    Happy Hooking,

    Penny Rose
