Rug Hooking at Penny's

We had our monthly rug hookers meetings at Penny's wonderful home Monday evening. Nine of us showed up and there were some fun rugs being worked on. Above is Barbara's rug based on a Deanne Fitzpatrick design. Love those colorful houses!
And this is Jean's little sheep rug made from a purchased pattern. It came out so lovely..with the fleecey white wool used on the mama sheep.
Jean was the only one to bring her hooked vessel. It's about one half done. I think the rest of us have sort of given up on the project for the time being.
This one is a close up of Anne's rug for friends who lost their home in the "Tea Fire"..It's called "Hot Donna" in honor of the chicken who survived amidst many who didn't. Hot Donna is her real name and she has a new home closer to the ocean.
Penny has started a great new series of rugs...this one is a close-up and reminds Penny of pineapple upside down cake.....yummy colors!
Penny loves red (can you tell?) and this one is still being worked on. The bottom two are completed and ready for finishing.

Thanks for sharing,,, its so good to see what others are doing. I'm working away on my rug. I try to do one little section a night. One night a flower, one night, a house, and so on.
