Anyway... back to the conundrum of what to take to class? My other thought is "Jumping Eagle" by Emma Lous Lais. I have this pattern downstairs waiting for me - and i love it - and WILL hook it eventually! That might be kind of a fun one to do with Jule Marie.
But both of these are BIG rugs. Do i want to start another big one? Well it would definitely last me through the winter! :) I don't know. Sigh. Give me your thoughts? Have you had Jule? What kind of pattern would you take?
And just so ya know... i am one of those people that go to workshops TO LEARN. Yes camp is loads of fun!! But that's not why i go! LOL I truly want to learn from that teacher, i'm on a knowledge quest! Each teacher has their specialties... and have mastered certain things, and i hope they come to TEACH those things, and help further their students knowledge and abilities. Jule Marie is an amazing hooker... she has an incredible sense of color... whimsicals and primitives... complex designs and naive designs... borders... and so much more! I am really looking forward to learning from her!!
This has been my ultimate year in rug hooking camps! LOL I may never go to another one now! haha! Jayne Hester and Jule Marie have both been on my "top 3" list of teachers that i wanted to learn from, for the last 6-8 years!! I was blessed to take Jayne's class this spring, and Jule's this fall!!!! IN THE SAME YEAR!!! Yah.. i was so excited i almost wet myself! LOL!! (I don't admit that to many people. LOL But i know you hookers "get it" !! ) :D
Ok.. i could babble on forever, and that wouldn't be good! So i'll sign off for now!
Hope you have a wonderfully blessed day!
