Happy Hands, part two

I went to my first rug hooking get-together. I don't have all my supplies yet but I will soon. Here are what some of the hookers are working on.





And here is a great doll that Sharon made. The photos don't do it justice.

Oh my Gosh!! They are beautiful. What is the woman doing on the one with the flowers?
Did she just attach them with yarn?

Hi Tara!
OMG! How fun! I cannot wait to see what you create! You will love rug hooking. It is so fun to paint with wool!
I love the projects you showed. Great post!

Looks like fun. I am taking Mary Stanley's class in October...but dying to know if there are some local classes? How did you meet these talented hookers

Tara Ross Studios said...

Hi Binky, it might be a pillow I'm not sure.

Thanks Melissa!

I have all the tools and supplies for rughooking at school... literally craft supplies left over from a teacher in the 70's. But I have never figured out how to do it and have some cool projects to show my students to get them into doing it. I need a rug hooking party to go to!
