Rugs from the Workshop

As promised, here are photos of the rugs from the Diane Stoffel Workshop. Not all are pictured - some of the gals declined having them published - and a couple were missed. Apologies.

Jennifer designed a Shabby Chic Sheep wearing a hat, gloves and even a string of pearls.

A close up of the 3D flowers that were part of the embellishments.

Marianne was working on a Karla Gerard pattern - fun vibrant colors.

A close up of her face.

Angela started a great folk art floral and dyed all the wool for it using Diane's recipes.

Marliss started a mermaid in underwater colors.

Leisa designed a Tree of Life to add to a gallery wall in her living room.

Shelley is the newest member of our group and she raises Alpacas. This is one of her favorites - a very ambitious project for a beginner and it's great - just look at that sweet face!

Coralee is hooking a story rug that depicts events from her family history .

Kim's son drew this rug pattern for her that shows her home and other buildings that have special significance to her.

Terri is just about finished with this vibrant sunflower rug that she began in the Sharon Smith class.

Tonia is really stretching herself by hooking this landscape - much different from what she usually does.

Michelle is hooking a Tin Man rug dedicated to the memory of her infant son - can't wait to see some of the Emerald City added to this one.

Nancy is doing a geometric-type rug in the style of those made in the UK.

Gayle's urn with flowers and birds is an old pattern.

And Myra is doing a beautiful floral that reflects the watercolor art that she also creates.

 Our group is full of talented rug hookers who are sharing and supportive - it was a great weekend!
