Hi everyone! I’m back at it today.  I’ve been busy creating my Design 101 class.  The maiden voyage of the class will be March 11th.  It’s a 3 hour class with theory and activities.  Lots to organize and do by then.

I’m back at “Moss” this week.  I’m half waiting for the weather to warm up so I can open the windows and start dyeing again.  I think I’m going to need more bright greens.

I’m enjoying “Canadian Folk Art to 1950” by Fleming and Rowan.  It’s a very readable book, once you get past the introduction.  Loving all the photos of folk art too.

I also started reading “Ageless Entrepreneur”.  So far it’s been an interesting read too.  The concept is on being a creative entrepreneur and everyone being their own boss these days.  The author thinks we all need to brand ourselves as a business entity, even if we work for a corporation or government.  He thinks we really work for ourselves, no matter where we work.  It will be interesting to see where the author goes with this line of thinking.

 

I am also looking more in-depth at “The Rug Hook Book” by Thomas Boswell (this is a re-read) and “Combining Rug Hooking and Braiding” by McDermet, Manges, and Tobias.

I am all geared up for the  Introductory Rug Hooking class this coming weekend.  We’ll be hooking a star mat similar to the photo at the top of this post.

Next class is Feb. 25th from 1:30 – 3:30 PM and is my Curves class.  I will teach curves, circles, lettering and backgrounds in that class.  I also have a handout on hooking bubbles for that class.  The Curves class practice piece is Beauty.   I’ve enlarged it a bit to make it easier for beginners to hook.

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Take care all.  It’s been snowing like crazy here.  Hope the rest of you are having nice weather.
