I have students!!!!

I am so excited! I have four students and a regular lesson time - weather permitting. You never know where you are going to find students, but two of them came from curling and those two told two friends and so it grows. My husband laughs at how positively giddy it makes me, but those of you reading this blog totally get it.

Here is the first rug by my first student Susan. Not only did she whistle through this little mat (do you recognize it from my rear view Santa post?), she has gone ahead and designed her second - a pillow-sized log cabin mat. Talk about a keener!!!


I think it's a reality of northern living - and escaping from February and March - that we will be a little flexible in attendance over the next few weeks. Nearly everyone can't come every Wednesday for the next six weeks - including myself. But we will meet with those who can come and fill the studio with chatter and laughter and learning.

Let's face it, rug hooking is always better in a group. And I'm ecstatic to have found mine.

Wendie,
Wow! That is so great! You have given me hope that I might find a few students myself. To have someone to share our love of hooking with has to be the ultimate reward for all the hard work we put into our craft and art. There is something about passing on something we care about and are excited about. Wishing you and your students all the best and many happy gatherings!

That is wonderful news...I am just happy when I can find a few people to sit and hook with on our travels.
