In November I'll be attending Maryland Shores rug camp and taking my second class with Lucille Festa. She is best known for her primitive designs and wide cuts. Previously I had a class with Lucille at Cape May (Rugs by the Sea) when she taught the first week. Since that time Lucille has had class the second week which isn't good for me since my show would be just one week after getting home and wouldn't be enough time for me to recover from the fun, and finish things for my show. So I jumped at the chance to take a class with her in November when the class is only 1 hour from my home.
The year me and my friend Deb had a class with her at Cape May, this is the rug that Deb hooked ~ The Tree of Life. As is usually the case, the picture does not do the rug justice. Frankly I'd not had an interest in hooking the Tree of Life until Deb's came to life and the colors were really rich and nice.
The rug I did in her class was a design which was in a publication by Needl'love called "Falloween", pictured below.
Interesting to take note that I must have finished my rug the same year as the class was taken since it says '07'. Whereas Deb, who works full time, didn't get hers completed until after January the next year of 08.
Happily I'll have to start getting ready pulling woolens and design together as time gets closer to camp. But before I do that will have to finish the Belindy I've started.
