I have been teaching two wonderful groups of quilters how to rug hook at the Farmhouse Quilt Company. The women have all taken to rug hooking quickly -- not a surprise since they all make quilts and do other crafts. Two students, both named Judy, are particularly prolific. I think they've finished more rugs this past year than I have!
Here is Judy W. with her version of my White Whale Tavern. She hooked it with thrifted wool, except for the background, which is one of my hand-dyed wools. That's her husband, Gene, helping her display the rug. What a terrific job!

Both Judys are working on the Saturday Sampler I designed just for their class. I'm sure they will have theirs finished before I finish mine.
I also got a great email this week from a customer who purchased my fox terrier pattern. Meet Sugar the Fox Terrier, hooked by Niheala:
I love the way Niheala turned my abstract border into a field of flowers and added the landscape behind the dog!
It is always a thrill for me to see how people interpret my patterns. If you've hooked one, send it along and I will post it here.
