APRIL 16, 2016 CREATIVE JUICES gathering day focuses on recycled stuff to make any sort of bag. I will have models, you make the stuff. Bring recycleables or dig into my stash (small fees). The bags below were created as a roll-up knitting needle pouch; a pin keep, (house), a blank book cover; a hooker’s zip pouch; a felting pouch; and a punch needle fold-over. The one on the lower right as made from a very small hooked rug found at a flea market. I kept this intact and included the maker’s label.

“The Couple”

19″ x 27″, new pattern, done with wool, silk, ribbon, yarn, on linen.  Hooked with love…couple 300p

35″ diameter new design, hooked in 8-cut.  Great for any floor or wall.  This was difficult to draw.  If anyone knows how to draw a perfect 35″ DIAMETER CIRCLE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. And this also calls for a 33-1/8″ circle within the circle.  After it’s been hooked, I’m looking for tech help in re-drawing it. Still, it’s available on my web site. http://www.offthehookwoolrugs.com

Clowning Around

In this new rug, 18″ x 20″, I’ve used many different fibers to create an interpretation of a Van Gogh work.  I’m teaching a 2-day class on it at my studio in Walnut Creek on FEBRUARY 14-15.  9 am to 4pm  $70 total/bring your own lunch! Call if you are interested, Two spots left. 925-22-1732 Call or email for more details.

Little People Home

I found this box at the ATHA biennial auction and brought it home. The creator painted an old silverware keeper and lined it with soft wool. She meant the box to be a place to store cutter heads, but I found my little creature I use on little houses I make, fit perfectly! I love the recycling that went into her box.DSC03248
