Stepping back in time to September 2014, Ali Strebel was my teacher that year. The first task in the class was doing a sampler of stitches. Ali handed out pieces of linen to each of us and a few strips of wool in various colors. I still have my sampler but since it isn't as organized or pretty as my pal Deb's I stole a picture of hers to show, albeit upside down.
Here is Ali demonstrating something but can't tell or remember just what it was.
Notice the gal above in navy blue (Elaine Copeman), she is the one who hooked Bertha at the Beach piece below. This is a hoot and she did a magnificent job.
Some Ohio gals were there, but sadly not Lauren, and they seemed to love picking on me. Hey, I'm easy to pick on, what can I say.
A Granny Donaldson rug hooked by Evelyn Lawrence, pattern by Woolley Fox.
The Give Ye Thanks piece on the left was hooked by pal Deb Nees, a Lori Brechlin design and sold by Spruce Ridge Studio.
Celtic Rabbits hooked by Evelyn Lawrence and design by Lisanne Miller.
A more colorful rug is "Dog Eat Dog World", designer unknown and hooked by Pat Levin.
Bee Head, designed by Bev Conway was hooked by Greta Schneider.
Ruth Hall hooked the 1835 PA Fraktur below.
New England Berry Tree design by Woolley Fox and hooked by Deb.
1830 Eagle hooked by Joan Strausbaugh and designed by Karl Kraft.
You can spot a Cheri Reid hooked rug a mile away. Here are only three which were in the rug show. The Red Lion Inn was huge so took two photos so you could enjoy the entirety of it. The first photo shows the top which was heavily reinforced for it to hang properly .
Last but not least is a photo of some gals enjoying the fine weather hooking on the porch. Am hoping Cape May will be happening again this September.
I didn't show all the rugs from the show as I've other things to do this afternoon. Have wasted so much time trying to recover the photos, searching the archives on previous blog posts to find Janet's rug to no avail. And including trying several times to edit the color changes in this post. Frustration!!!!!
Thank you Joan!!!!!!! Oh, 'justgail' thank you for your email too but it went into my spam folder since you are a no-reply blogger and I didn't see your message in time. You CAN fix the no-reply just do a google for those words.
