"It is a token of health and gentle characteristics when women of high thoughts and accomplishments love to sew; especially as they are never more at home with their own hearts than while so occupied." ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne

So fun to see patterns I have admired, made by local artists!!
I love this! Log cabin, my all time favorite quilt pattern........on my "to do" :)
Some of the smaller projects......each so lovely!!
My teacher........Michele.....so very helpful
I just recently took my first rug hooking class! It was so much fun, I think I am "hooked". So fun to find such a relaxing new adventure! Our sweet teacher invited us to a wonderful show, featuring some of the best hookers in the Pacific Northwest. We had such a fantastic time. Saw some of the most beautiful rugs! The best part was visiting with the "hookers" they all shared very helpful tips...I was totally in awe of the workmanship these artists shared with us. They had vendors too, selling their wares and supplies......our bags were full to the brim!! Such lovely wools, patterns, hooks and handmades!! I can't remember when I have had such a good time, they also had a luncheon that was spectacular! Wonderful day shared with friends!!
