Wow, how the world has changed since I last posted. But we all know all about that. So I have no more to say about it, other than...
FINALLY we had a meeting of the Quabbies at Greenleaves in Amherst last Sunday. Six of us came and we masked up and sat on the condo association's huge deck out back. Here are some photos from the meeting. Joann G took home the prize for Most Rugs Completed--you can see hers first. She was binding all of them (well actually, still working on one of them).
This wonderful rug is someone else's design but Joann heavily altered the border. I remember her saying that the color planning resulted from when she picked up a skein of wonderfully dyed Violet Jane yarn, brown, which she is now using to whip the edge of the rug (you can see the binding attached and waiting for whipping on the left of this photo). We all went crazy over the design and colors.
Kathleen brought a piece she had only drawn onto linen the night before, a banner stating "No Justice, No Peace," but since he was only starting the hooking as we began the meeting, I did not get a photo. She has also finished (almost) quite an amazing rug but it was too large to bring to the meeting; hopefully we'll see it soon.
Our NEXT MEETING IS SEPTEMBER 20TH from 11-2 at Diana's Liziana Creations Studio in Shelburne. For details, please go HERE.
