First Day of Class with Victoria.....

We had a great first day with Victoria today.She was feeling better and her voice was a little stronger but not back to normal.

Victoria Hart Ingalls is from Independence, Mo. Victoria has been hooking for thirty years and teaching for nearly twenty, both at home and at rug schools across the country. Victoria has written for Rug Hooking Magazine and has had work included in Celebrations.Though she is known for her focus on fine shading and portraiture, her style ranges from traditional, to wide-cut hooking with a folk art appeal.I love the little kids faces she does. She has a degree in Fine Art and was a student of well-known teacher and author Margaret Hunt Masters. Her husband, Tom, will be joining her with his beautiful hand-made hooks

This is the pattern I am working anyone that knows me,knows that I hook big cuts.Most of the rugs I have hooked are a #8 cut or bigger.This rug will be hooked in a #3 cut so this is a whole new ball game for me.When I learn how to something I want to know everything there is to know about it.So....I am jumping in with bout feet.I will keep you posted.

This is Libby and her bird. She sent pictures of her bird to Victoria to her a pattern.

Aileen is working on this sweet little piece.
Here you see Victoria helping one of the girls and Nita is looking on.

Diane in working on this two beauts.

Nita is working on a rug with three fish and this is the first one she did.Nita has done more fine hooking than anyone in this class and it shows;)
I just had to show you this last picture of the hubbies.Tom on the right(Victoria's hubby),Adam(my hubby) in the middle with the banjo and Jimmy to the left( Charleen's hubby).

Oh it looks as though you are all having a wonderful time. Love the details of each one and the pleasure of banjo music....I'm so envious!

Vicki, it looks like you're all having a wonderful time. I so wish I could come down to Eureka Springs and take a class with you. I notice from you're pointing her out that you have Juanita in your class. Please, please tell her hello from me and from all the rest of her Snippets buddies. We miss her.

I would do as you say in that last sentence, but the only one I know is at the rug hookers class. And he's happily married.

Looks like a great group and lots of beautiful rugs.
Someday I might make a hooking class.
