How Lovely!

I just came back from visiting the Holland, Michigan rug the way, what a terrific and inspiring place for a rug hooker to spend some time! And even more lovely is Sibyl Osicka posing with her gorgeous bouquet of flowers! These were given by one of her students (actually, you can see her face just above the pink lily!) who grows them in her backyard garden! This was especially impressive to those of us (uh hum...I'm talking about me) who don't have a green thumb. Click on the picture to get a close up of the beautiful variety and colors of the flowers.

Sibyl is such a classy lady - I am very excited to be taking her for the first time at Off the Ocean in January. I am doing a fair sized crewel - an old pattern by Pearl. I know call me crazy - I never hook with anything wider than a 6 and the past couple of years - I seem to be going down in cut size instead of up as is the mainstream trend. go figure! Melody
