So this is the progress that I made on "Wooly Star Table Rug" during class.
Construction makes me nervous, so I was glad to get this part completed. (And it wasn't as difficult as I thought with a great teacher and several helpful table mates - thank you!) I'm confident that I can finish the rest. Unfortunately, I haven't had a chance to pick it back up since I have been home, but hopefully I will soon.
Here is the wool and hand-dyed velvet that came home with me.
And I couldn't resist this sweet little wool pin that Beth Anne made - so darling!
This beautiful wool applique is an original piece by Ginny Henson and is based on an antique hooked rug. I hope that I didn't drive Ginny crazy as I went back to look at it a dozen times before ultimately purchasing it ;) And I am so glad that I did!
I purchased this wee needlebook from Rebekah.
My husband and I had a black cat when we were first married. Buck the cat lived to the ripe old age of 18.
Here is the inside. A page for needles and pins and a heart pocket for a pair of scissors.
These treasures are by Rebekah's daughter Kelsey.
Isn't the necklace pretty? I can't wait to wear it!
Thanks for joining me on my day trip to Iowa!
I'd like you to share in the fun, so here is a little charm pack of beautiful hand dyed green wool to match the beautiful greens in Barry & Beth Anne's garden.
Simply comment on this post or send an email to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "Giveaway" in the subject line and tell me what is your favorite part of the month of June?
I will draw a random winner on July 3rd.
Tomorrow I am heading back down to Mom & Dad's, but there will be more on that tomorrow.
