After the lecture on the color wheel was over - we all took our canvas, wool bags and chairs out to the covered patio just off of Linda's studio which is on the ground floor of her home. One by one Eric called out each student to discuss her canvas and see what wool and colors she brought to contribute to the design.
Some people had everything they needed to make a successful color plan and some he said "go shopping for this, this and this" - Linda had two WALLS of wool and Eric had a whole table full he brought from home.
Here is Eric's table overlooking the covered patio. Who wouldn't love that view !
Here is a beautiful oriental that Eric is hooking. The rug will be for sale to the highest bidder when he completes it. It is 5 ft X 7 ft and is hooked in a 3 cut - it is an old Pearl McGown pattern but I don't remember the name. His current highest bid is $4500 - a pittance of what this rug should be worth - so if you have $5000 to spend and want this rug - it might could be yours.
For some reason - I did not take a photo of my persian oriental. It is a small rug - I think 18" X 30" but a very interesting design and I was pleased with the color plan. We did not get a lot of hooking done on our actual projects because Eric also gave 2 dye demos and a finishing demo so I guess maybe that is why I did not include any WIP's of the projects in this workshop.
Since I was in a hurry to get a post made before the holiday weekend - I did not take any WIP photos of my needlework or knitting either. Actually there has not been a lot of progress with my stitching or knitting lately.
So for those of you who are lucky enough to be taking off on a trip for Memorial Day weekend - have a great time. I have sampler guild on Saturday and we'll probably hang out around the pool and cook out on Sunday - Don't forget to remember all of those who have fought and gave up so much for our freedom in this great country. America the Beautiful - sing it loud and sing it proud !!!!!!!!
