Star Of Texas Camp

Oh what a wonderful time I had at my very first rug hooking camp....It was just like a being a kid again! I had opportunity to take Maria Barton's class (Star Rug Company)and was it ever fun! I learned so much and enjoyed meeting her! Maria~ Your such a sweetie and just so talented...just can't say enough good things about this gal!

She had a class of 12 students and made sure each person had help color planning their rugs and we learned so many different things it was just totally AWESOME!!!

(Pati Jane, Maria, Jo, and me)

Pati and I headed to Tyler, Texas on Sunday morning with the car packed to the brim and knew that we would be meeting 2 friends from the USAPRIM group that we belong to on eBay. Maria being the teacher and Jo a very special lady indeed. Jo is a retired school teacher and does so many different art forms it is just simply amazing...besides rug hooking she does applique and quilting. Pati and I talked all the way home this evening about how much we enjoyed camp and the great friendships we made. It was a well put together camp and I think everyone who attended came away with new friends and lots of wonderful rug hooking ideas. I can hardly wait until I get to go again!

I've got lots of pictures to share but that will have to wait until tomorrow. Ahhh anticipation!!!!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Thanks you so much for the box of wooly worms. I couldn't believe all the great colors in there.
I already have an idea of what I want to use them for and can't wait to start...but I will finish the sheep one first.
Or at least I think I will! *wink* *wink*

Can't wait to see more pictures from your camp.
