Christmas Cheer & Inspiration

Another favorite ornament painted by a friend and given as a gift several years ago. It's my house, and I'd say it's perfect!

My goal was to finish this piece before the 25th and I did it! This is the first time I have hooked an entire piece using #4 cut.( I snuck in a few #6's into the background.) The silhouette is done using a dark spot dye, and I applied a little glitter glue on top of the wool for the star and the halo. Love the result, but won't be hooking with #4 cuts anytime soon. My hat is off to you all that hook in that size all the time.

A little vintage nativity with a punched tin church. The reason for the season.

Miami Valley Rug Hooking Guild

The last meeting of the year, and even with temps in the single digits  and Christmas next week, we had a great turn out. All sorts of projects underway in various stages of being done or just getting started. A very talented group of hookers!

One more fun get together with friends to celebrate the season! More good food, laughs and ornament exchange. Love seeing what everyone comes up with.

Christmas Cheer & Inspiration

This little jewel I received from a friend a couple years ago, it's a winter replica of my cottage. She even cut a small hole it the bottom so a battery light could be placed inside. A treasure.

Looks just like the real thing!  Love it!

A nativity set made by my husband 30 years ago when I couldn't find a "primitive" set to my liking. A couple of feather trees and some paint and embellishments by me.
