November Rugs from Peninsula Rugmakers Guild
Gerri Shaw – Poppy (Connie Charleston pattern hooked with #3 cut directly on Dorr Wool)
Gerri's shading is exquisite! I had to touch it to see if it was sculptured the shading was so perfect.
What a novel idea Connie Charleston had with hooking using wool as a backing. Those of us who have struggled mightily sewing a pillow together will appreciate how much easier it will be for Gerri to make a pillow out of this piece.
Ardis Deane – (Actual Name Unknown – Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern)
Cute pattern using real (although miniature) clothespins. Ardis plans to hang it in her laundry room.
Ardis Deane – (Pattern & Designer Unknown)
Ardis calls this her Mt. Fuji gristmill -- maybe somewhere in Japan there is a gristmill with a pine tree and a river flowing by it. Those mountains do resemble Mt. Fuji!
