I love the stone walls in this building.
Mary Jo and Karl are very active members of the Hunterdon Rug Guild in New Jersey. They are really great teachers, very patient and encouraging.
Here they are showing some of their beauiful rugs.
Most of their work is primitive and often inspired by old tavern signs.
Here are some of the other items, mats, pillows and 3 dimensional objects that they brought to show us.
And here is the project they taught us. My version of it, anyway. It is supposed to be a small log cabin mat.
I had to put some cheddar in it of course. Here is mine at the end of the 6 hour class!
OK, so I am a little slow! We each were given a flower pin that Mary Jo made to take home.
And I got a special surprise when Mary Jo asked my to adopt her hooked cat and take it home. Of course I did!
I enjoyed my time in the class, but I need a lot of practice. I don't think rug hooking will replace quilting for me any time soon.
