Quiet Corner Rug Show

Today we went to Woodstock Connecticut for the rug show. We used the gps, not a good idea, lol. It took us down the worst back roads and have no idea why, it usually makes us go on the highways. We thought it was a short cut, not!

The show was nice, but not a huge one. There were some beautiful rugs and Elizabeth Black was the guest speaker. She does the most wonderful animal rugs and this is just a sampling of the many beautiful pieces, she has made throughout the years.



One of my highlights was meeting Linda Repasky. She is as nice in person as she is online. She is always so generous with helping others, when it comes to learning punch needle and about the supplies. She even bought me a skein of wool thread from Gloriana and one italian wool thread to try in my punch needle. That was so thoughtful of her and I can't wait to try it.

So, for tonight, I will show you a few rugs from the show and in the next days, more of them.
This set was at the beginning of the rug show, there are a lot of interesting and beautiful rugs for the holidays in this section.



The next batch of rugs are from Brenda Anderson. I just love the rugs she did and the colors she used. They are so deep and rich and so prim in person, not sure if they will be the same on here. She also has a unique and whimsical style. These are patterns I would enjoy making.

The Brenda Anderson rugs are awesome! The designs are great and her hooking style enhances the entire mood of each rug all the more! Thanks for sharing these pics and looking forward to seeing more!

How wonderful to see these rugs. Debbie, I cannot email you, don't know why...I am lycetee@yahoo.com. Any chance you could email me then I could reply. That would work. I would be so happy to have any of your horse or pony patterns, they are so beautiful....but then, any of your patterns would be a delight. Thank you, arlyce

Thanks for the rug show Debbie - even though the GPS took you around the long way (hey if you came across a fiber yard sale it would have been a blessing!) it still looked like a good time!
