Rug Camp part two

Hooker Hill continued

Wool Poppies President Katie was in my (Brigitta's) class. She is working on a Karla Girard design. Top picture taken early in the week, bottom was taken on Wednesday. Katie didn't get to work on her rug as much as the rest of us do to her hosting duties.

Katie shared the rug below during our classes show and tell. The rug won first prize in our local fair.

My tablemate and Wool Poppy, Barbara is working on a rug to go in her cabin. This squirrel is so cute. She was still trimming his tail when this was taken.

Another classmate is working on a pattern called "Sleigh Ride" designed by Wool Poppy, Carla Jensen. This will be a night scene. I learned a lot watching the color selection for this rug.

I took a 2 evening mini class from Laura Pierce. On the first night I learned how to dip dye wool for fall leaves. On the second night I learned how to use the wool to hook the leaves. In future posts I will show this project as I work on it. I'll also post pictures of the pieces of wool I'm working with.

I'll wrap up my rug camp post in my next post.

Til next time Ronda


  1. That rock garden is charming! And I am very interested in the dip dyeing :)

  2. It all looks good. You are learning a lot. Thanks for sharing that rock garden. I'm always having difficulty hooking rocks.
