We had so much fun in Lenexa, Kansas!!!! So many hookers.....so many rugs....so many vendors....so much wool....so many patterns.....so much inspiration!!!!
Had a blast seeing teachers I've had in the past.....Nola Heidbreder and Anita White!
Talking to vendors and hookers that I've not seen in a while....Betty, Ter'e, Pam, Vicki, Denise, Belva, Bev, Rhonda, Cammie, Andrea, Marilyn, Helen.....and of course....just like Oscar night... I'm sure there are many that I'm forgetting!!!
So, without further adieu.....here are a few teaser pictures......I'll add more over the next few days to keep you coming back!!!!
Yes, I'm ornery that way!
These first two pictures are from a hooker/artist who just totally blows me away every time I see her. Her name is Vicki Hardcastle and she is from Eureka Springs, Arkansas....someone I've had a chance to get to know. This is a piece that she was working on at the hook-in....all I can say is WOW!!!!
Here is a picture of another rug in progress....this is a fine cut rug and the rug was HUGE....like 5.5 feet long of something incredible like that....here is a peek at it. I don't know the hooker....she was not at her table when I took this picture....if anyone knows more about it I'd love for you to leave a comment for me.
And, the last rug of today's post.....darn, I met the hooker of this one and I didn't get her name! (now I have her name....Dea Olsen!! Thanks Betty and JoJo) I think she made this rug in cuts ranging from a #9 to a #12....it's one big honking rug and so stunning.....she said it was a great way to use up LOTS of wools!!!! She got the pattern from Barb Carroll of www.woolleyfox.com.
Go forth and be creative,
