Rug Camp In and Out of Class

My gal pals were in Barb's class and I really wanted to be part of the group...but since I wasn't there chose to work on a Woolley Fox design at home to feel like I was enjoying camp too.

Below is a rug being hooked by my friend Deb called Gettys Birds and is a Woolley Fox design. 
This is what friend Shari was hooking, and was posted previously.  She didn't provide an updated photo so this is it.
Sadly I don't have a photo of Mary's rug and don't think anyone took the time to take a photo of Joanne's rug either.  I was SO looking forward to seeing their accomplishments too.

While my endeavors aren't as great as the gals who were IN camp, here is my minor accomplishment OUT of Camp.  Gossip is another design by Woolley Fox ~ BUT ~ I took some creative license to change the bird motifs.  Uh, that poor Goldfinch is mis-shappen and I refuse to pull loops and rehook yet again. is a primitive...right? 
In case you are wondering, the tree limbs and trunk is mostly #8.5 but using some #8 worms.  The red bird & blue bird is a mix of #8 worms and cut #8.5.  The chickadee and Goldfinch are all left over #8 worms.

Am thinking there may be more photos coming from friends when they read their pictures are missing.  So stay tuned.

After ANOTHER 3 days of rain there is a thunderstorm coming thru. Have a good evening everyone.

  5. Hi Saundra,

  6. It may be of comfort to you to know that we are being rained on also today. It felt cold and damp in the house so I lit the wood stove and the heat feels so good.

    I think your birds are just fine as is. You off to a good start.
    Hugs, Julia
