NWA Hook-in 2011

BORDER WORKSHOP with Judy Cripps
Do you ever wonder how to do the border of your rug? This workshop will give you lots of ideas. We will discuss:
1. How to draw a straight border
2. Size and shape of borders
3. Border Design
4. Border Color
Everyone will start with either the Eureka House or Happy 4th rug pattern. They are 17 X 18 and drawn on linen. The 2 inch border on each will be blank. I will have lots of examples to show you. After the talk I will meet with each of you and together we will design a wonderful border for your rug. Hopefully each rug will be a little different.
The cost for the pattern is $22.00. WOOL IS NOT INCLUDED so bring your own. As soon as I have a class list I will contact you and send you a color photo of your rug to help you color plan. I will also have wool available to purchase but try to use your own. These are small projects and great for using up your scraps!
 We still have a few spots open in this workshop at the Hook-in June 10, 2011. If you would like to be part of it please let me know fast.

War Eagle Craft Fair Canceled ! But all Indoor Shows Still Going...

 Because of all the rain the Ozarks have been getting this spring War Eagle Craft Fair has been canceled. So what to do? I was thinking I would just work around the house this weekend.Then my friend Jody call and ask what other show I was going to do?What!!!I can't get into a show at this late date! But she got me thinking, so I got on my trusty computer and got to work.The people at the "Ozark Regional Arts and Crafts Show" had heard the news and made arrangements for more space.So I will now be at the John Q. Hammons Convention Center.So come look me up there. I girls from the "Sawdust Cabin" will be setup next to me, just like War Eagle.
 I have been hard at work felting lots of fun things.This is some of the wool I use.I guess you could say this is my paint pallet.
 This is my work space right now.It looks like a crazy person has been in here.
 Here a sneak pick at a new idem I will have at the show.Cute,cute,cute.
Cats are running wild,a must  for spring. I will also demo needle felting at the show,so stop by and I will show you  how it works.

Live Deeply and come see me!
