Good Morning,
Hope this Saturday finds you well...

We are headed back to the deep freeze after yet another round of snow!


I hear Paul scraping snow off the roof, so I'm sure this pile has grown.

It's beautiful, but a hassle trying to drive around the city...
a good excuse to stay in...
to make soup...
and putter around the studio.
I've been organizing the wool shelves and discovered some beauties I had forgotten about.
I'll be making new bundles and putting them in the ETSY shop soon:)

but before I do that...

I want to share a few of my students rugs from the MCFTA Student Show...


Lisa hooked this adaptation of 1885 Horses...a Woolley Fox pattern...#8 cut wool on Monk's Cloth


Debi hooked this stunning butterfly...
her own design...and her FIRST rug after her little beginner mat!
mostly #8 wool cut on linen...with a bit of black and white nylon stockings.
There are still openings in my Spring II class...
visit the Minnetonka Center for the Arts website for info... Stay warm...think Spring...and have a great weekend! ~Laurie

This old heart is one of my first hooked mats...
circa 1970
recycled wool and remnants from sewing projects...
we sewed most of our clothes back then...
I can still remember the jacket I made from that plaid;)

The photo is fuzzy, because it's a scan from a print...
from my 1st camera...a Kodak 126 Instamatic!
Wishing all my friends...old and new...a very Happy Day ~Laurie

...perhaps not the weather...tho' the polar vortex finally moved on,
there is plenty of winter ahead here on the northern prairie.
Very soon the NEW Wool Works Magazine will be arriving...
Here's a peek at my Grandma's Garden Pin Keeps project...
quick and fun to stitch!

Wishing you all a great day ~ Laurie

Happiest of New Years to you ALL,
The new year finds me scurrying to finish magazine articles, commission rugs and finalize the 2019 edition of the Annual LJFibers Hooked Rug Project,
but I just took time out to list THESE in the Etsy Shop


I hope you'll take a look:)
