SEBRING - THE EXHIBIT

I wanted to show you some of the wonderful rugs that were displayed in Sebring at the Scrub Hooking Workshop in March.  There were some rugs that I could not get photos of because of the way the sun was coming thru the windows so I apologize in advance if I did not show a photo of  your rug.  Plus some of them I had to discard as they were too blurry.  I will comment if I know who hooked the rug but I did not take notes so please don't be offended if I show your rug and don't remember who hooked it - it was a lovely display - there are some awesome rugs by this great group of hookers.  If you are a rug hooker and have never attended one of the camps that Anne Eastwood directs in Sebring FL - then I encourage you to plan for it and try and come.  She has a week long camp in November with great teachers and then she has 3- 3 day workshops in January - March and July.  So come and experience some hooking bliss in Sebring.

Well here we go



well here is DF Susans rug with my mom's tiny little foot LOL - isn't this a dramatic rug - I just loved seeing Susan's work

This I belive is Corrine Bridges rug done in a fine cut - lovely!

another dramatic beauty - this rug was stunning and I'm sorry I don't remember who hooked it

Another beautiful tropical rug - sorry i don't know who hooked it but I think it was one of Carol Finney's designs

This is a prize winning rug by one of the teachers Pat Gaufaliet from Ocala - It is an angel holding a dove - once again the sun from the windows was interferring with the shot.  I think it is hooked in a 3 cut

What a neat prospective on this rug 
This rug was also hooked by a teacher Vivily Powers - we have taken many classes from Vivily - this rug was actually designed by Jane McGown Flynn and named "Vivily" in honor of the namesake.  Several friends in her class were hooking this rug.

Diana's beautiful pillow - another dramatic tropical canvas by Carol Finney

This lovely octagonal oriental was hooked by teacher Pat Gaufaulet - I was enchanted with the colors - another 3 cut prize winning beauty by Patti

I'm sorry but I don't know how hooked this lovely oriental tile type rug

This was a hooked purse - how cool is this and what a fashion statement this would make!

Another beauty by Corrine Bridges - she said it was hooked with swatch scraps - what a great finish to have come from the scrap bags.

this is a rug by our teacher Polly Minick - I think it is one of her newer canvas designs - I think Polly said she almost aways hooks with an 8 cut

A beautiful tuscan scene

another cute fish purse

A cute dog cushion hooked by Dee Giel - what a great likeness

Well friends that concludes the rug exhibit in Sebring for 2012 - there were many more rugs I didn't get photos of - this was just a sampling of the high level of talent possessed by the attendees of this workshop.

I hope you all have a blessed Holy week and a joyous Easter - Hopefully you will have time for some stitching, knitting or pulling a few loops - oh and popping a few Dove eggs along the way.  Wooley hugs to you all ~ ~ ~

What an awesome collection of rugs! Once my walls are full, I'll have to learn to hook so I can cover the floor! Mmmmm dove chocolates (milk chocolate for me)! Have a blessed and joyful Easter, Mel!

Oh wow! What a totally amazing exhibit! They are all soooo beautiful! I do have to say though, that my favorite kinds of rugs are still the kind that Polly does. :D Thanks for showing them all to us -- amazing!

Thanks for the rug show! What lovely rugs. I can't imagine a 3 cut. Any more, I think an 8 cut is narrow...lol!
Now we want to see your rug in process and your mom's too!
Hugs and Happy Easter :)
