Most exciting thing I do every Janaury is Off the Ocean rug camp which is held in Orange Park where I live. It's nice to be a commuter and sleep in my own bed every night.
I had one of my favorite teachers again this year - Diane Stoffel. I revisited a rug I started in 2018 and never worked on since. It is the Strawberry Thief, a William Morris pattern and the rug was from Encompassing Designs in Canada.
This photo is were I left off 2 years ago but I believe I did get the right thrush finished before I put it away.
the Eve panel is probably my favorite - you can see her reaching for the apple in the serpents mouth. Lots of glare from the strong sunlight in the gallery where the rug show is held. You can see the tail of the snake on the Adam photo above really well. This stool pattern was purchase a long time ago when Kim Nixon was still alive. We had her leave 2 sides of the stool blank and Katie adapted motifs from the A&E antique sampler Jane Atkinson throughout the 4 sides for me. Even has the burning bush on her side of the stool.
Not sure whose rug that is below hers on the floor.
I wanted to get this post done before January hit the history books. I've been knitting a lot and hopefully next post will have some progress photos of shawls I have been working on plus my fair isle cowl. I enjoy reading all your comments - please do pop in and tell me how January has been for you. See you in February !
