The Welcome Rug Revisited

Thank you Kathy Stephens!   I was so impressed with the basket on Abundant Harvest from your Show and  Tell piece at Western McGown Teachers Workshop.  It was the perfect treatment for thee basket on my Welcome rug. I was never satisfied with the basket.  What I had in originally seemed too out of place--the color wasn't right and it stood out like a sore thumb to me.  There wasn't any relationship between the basket and any of the other elements in the rug.  What do you think?

Inspired by Kathy's piece, I am finally on the path towards getting this rug done!  Don't you agree this is working out much better?  I have used the colors of the flowers in the beading in the basket.  It really looks like a basket now.

Western McGown Teachers Workshop

While I haven't posted any of what I have been up to the past few months, I have spent a lot of time this last year uploading and organizing 25 years of photos for the Western McGown Teachers Workshop.  I feel it was time well spent as it could be a valuable tool for sharing this wonderful art form.

If you are interested in browsing through those photographs, they are online on Flickr organized by year.

Let me know what you think!
