The throw-down....for you newbies and who haven't attended a rug camp yet, is held on the day before leaving camp and allowing the student to accomplish as much as possible on their rug. It is a time to share their achievements and see what everyone else was working on.
The rug below is being hooked by my table partner Weslee Hursh and a pattern by Lucille. Wes was using mostly hand torn.
A lovely geometric design by Cammie Bruce.
My roomie Deb is hooking Tulip Cross, a design by Emma Lou Lais. Everyone kept coming over to see how she was progressing and saying they either had that design or wanted to hook one too.
run-over from Cammie's class was spread to the other 3 teachers. Good job Virginia and sorry for my up and down.
Old Tattered Flags designs.
And look what I found on the lawn during my walk-about...a Magdalena design of Two Chickens. My heart skipped a beat. Magdalena hooked rugs in the 1800's so her designs are in Public Domain.
Almost forgot to post the Sheep in the Sunflowers.
As the front lawn of the Chalfonte is quite tight, I was not able to capture a photo of all the in-progress rugs. But there sure was a lot of eye candy to behold
