more Quoddy Loopers at work over the holidays

Carol B is no longer a newbie - she has been hooking for a couple of years now with our Quoddy Loopers group and has quite a few mats to her credit. This latest one is a Deanne Fitzpatrick design, depicting a Newfoundland Harbour, titled "Looking out to Sea". It was a kit, with #8 cut wool, plus some extra to 'frame' it. Carol has captured the care-free feeling Deanne is known for.

Then we have another mat from Sandra -who says "The Gift was [a free pattern] in December 2009 Create & Decorate Magazine.  It was designed by Jo Ellen Dismukes. I hooked it in my usual 4 cut." Sandra had this happy mat completed by Christmas!

And another of Sandra's rugs - this one an adaptation of van Gogh's painting "Flower Beds in Holland".  Completed January 2010, using many of Sandra's own dyed wools, in 4 cut.

Spring is coming... eventually... and this mat sings of spring!

So am I - Deanne has done great things for rughooking, encouraging individuality and expression. She's a maritime Canadian treasure!
