New Years Greetings !
I'm just floating aimlessly into the new year in regards to my needlework projects. I've done some stitching, knitting and NO hooking but that is about to change.
Tomorrow starts my annual outing to Off the Ocean rug hooking workshop. This will be my 18th consecutive year of attending this rug camp. My teacher this time is the incomparable Diane Stoffel and I've had her a number of times over the 18 years. She and one other teacher and myself and one other "camper" are the only ones besides director and friend Katie Puckett who have attended all 18 years. WOW - where have the years gone. Anyway - I'm excited about that and next post I'll be showing some rug hooking FINALLY! Sad to say another year is passing and I don't have a rug or finish to exhibit in their rug show. BOOOOO ! I simply must remedy that in 2017 and get something finished up.
I only have a couple of photos for you this post. First is a not so great photo of a Janina Kallio design called Herald. The yarn is Louisa Harding and I don't remember the name of it but a wool from Italy. It's a lovely springy color and the light openness of the pattern will make it a wearable garment here in the deep south.
