Rugs from Eureka Springs Rug Camp 2011

Sarah did a great rug of a peeping-tom being flashed by the lady of the house.

Bonnie's rug is looking so good.I am sorry about this first 4 pics, I had to use my phone.

Itinia's sheep is so cute and she got some of her flowers done.

If Cheryl had one more day I think she would have got this rug done.Cute,Cute,Cute.

Anita loves bright colors and she really hit it with this rug.I can't wait to see it finished.

Cock-a-doodle-do....Jody is going to town on her chicken rug.

Kathy was a beginner when she came to camp but she did a great job.I know she loved it and will keep on hooking.

Laura's sheep was smaller then all the others because she is making a tote bag from it.What a sweet little sheep.
Kate and Ella got rugs loaded up before I got pictures.Bad girls.

I hope everyone had a great time ,I know I did.It was very nice meet the new ladies and I hope they will come back to Eureka Springs Rug Camp sometime.

Aileen Anderson is a wonderful teacher and I want to thank her very much for working with me.

What I Have Been Up To THis Week...

This week I got what my daddy calls a "wild-hair" and I took apart a room in my house.This is my guest room and it did not look inviting at all.I did not take pics of the gross carpet that was in there, you will just have to take my word for it. Bad!!!

So I ripped it up and through it out the door.

Here you can see the big hole I cut in the wall.See that pluming sticking out of the wall, it started life as a sink.Yes, there was a sink in the bedroom.My son-in-law did the hard part and capped off the pipes and then I put the wall back together.That is the wall behind him in the pic below.
Now comes the fun part, laying the carpet.Now you might ask way I did not just hire someone to come in and do it.Well, to make a long story short, a few years ago I had two men come to lay carpet in my bedroom and one of them had a heart attack and died.No more of that.

My sweet son-in-law Jay, did offer to help, so here we are working hard.
I think we did a great job.Look out Jay, we have four more rooms to go.

Now here is the room all done.It is my red,white and blue room.If you look close you can see that the walls are papered in brown paper sacks.It also has a hand painted border.

All ready for guest. My mother-in-law will be the first to stay in it, she is coming this weekend.
This is a old printers tray that I have had forever but it has not been hanging for years.Some of the little things in it I have had since I was a child.
I just had to add a little color to my lady.
I love this old wash table I found at a yard sale for 20.00. I am so happy to have one room all done.
By-the-way, Adam does not know what I have been up too.Boy will he be surprised when he gets home this weekend.
I just had to show you what my friend Jody gave me today.I have never seen anything like these but she knew just what they were.
Ain't they cute! Each one has info on the back that tells all about the animal.
It is all most rug hooking camp time so come back the rest of the week as I will be posting about it.

Live Deeply and go rip up some carpet,
