Rug Punch Santa

Trish stopped by for more wool and shared her new Santa.  She appliqued his body then punched through both backing and wool to do Santa's face.  She's making it into a pillow.

She also brought her wood burned and colored pencil stools of some antique post cards.  She's very clever.

Creative Workshop with Maria {Nov 2 - 3}

Maria (Star Rug Co.) and I taught together this weekend in Tipp City.  What fun!  Maria designed the patterns (sheep, snowman & a pumpkin) then she and I each did our version of the designs.  The ladies then got to choose which design to do, along with trying lots of techniques to get the result they wanted.  Being creative and trying new things was the idea behind the workshop.  Once you see the photos, you'll see everyone had great results.

These show Maria's and my versions of the designs:

Working Away -

Maria's samples and extra inspiration (forgot to take photos of mine)

Show and tell by the ladies attending, one of my favorite parts.  Lots of talent.

What was accomplished by the end of the workshop.  So much creativity, an all out great time!
