Eureka Springs Rug Hooking Camp First Day

Today kicked off the firs day of the Eureka Springs Rug Hooking Camp.The first two pics here were taken by Dana from http://calicocatpress.blogspot.com/ and http://cabinchronicles.blogspot.com/ She was in town and stopped by to see what hooker camp looked like.Dana always has great pics on her blogs so when she walked in I just handed her my camera and said "here take my picture."Above is a rug hookers wet dream.Tables full of hand dyed wool and oh yummy it all is.
This is me working on my rug.It is called "I can draw armadillos".I do all the cooking for the camp so I don't get much hooking done,but I listen and learn.

Nola started right in teaching use all kinds of great techniques that we can use to get depth in our rugs.There are 7 ladies in the first class.3 of them are very new hookers and I love to see the delight in their faces as they see all the new things they can do with the wool.

Today was also the kickoff of the Eureka Springs Bluegrass Show.We will have more on that later.

thanks for the kind words and the link Vickie! Hey I found a new felter you should check out. Look under my cat blog and find the link to Under the Licorice Tree. Also, you have a new friend at Middle of Nowhere! In case you hadn't already seen it.
