Last night I got back to working on this rug and it is almost done. Just a little around the edge and it will be finished. This is a Karen Kahle design and one of the few rugs I've made from other artist's designs. The only other one I can think of is a door topper that I hooked at Deanne Fitzpatricks workshop in Nova Scotia. Just thinking about that makes me want to go there again.
Nine of our rug hooking group took a "field trip" there for two weeks and had a marvelous time.
We rented two vans and visited rug hookers, museums, and folk artists all over Nova Scotia.
OK...since it's my birthday I thought I'd post some old photos of me. Bear with me.... in this one I am probably about 3 years old, taken at my grandparents home in Los Angeles.
This one is sort of goofy...kindergarten in Hermosa Beach. I am pretty sure I cut my own bangs!
First grade in Hermosa Beach. I remember that dress made of Lanz fabric, it was quilted and had little silver buttons and I loved wearing it.
Second grade school photo from South Pasadena~Marengo School...still cutting my own hair!
Look at those crazy bangs!
Jump to sixth grade at Marengo, those were the days of sweater sets and head bands!
And finally my high school photo from South Pasadena High School~class of 1966! A long time ago!
Satsumas from the Farmers Market! I've been going on Tuesday to pick these up for Justin's lunches and for my morning snack....so good right now! Sweet, seedless and easy to peel!
I have a fun day planned...lunch with girl friends, a beach walk, and dinner out with my boys tonight at Jane, a restaurant recommended by Maren.
