Cape May Rugs!

I hope you enjoy these exceptional rugs created by the students in my class at Cape May.....
This wonderful primitive design is being created by Saundra Porter.  She used antique paisley for the antlers.
 Patty Mahaffey is working on Conquest of Queen Anne (designed by Cindi Cay).  Her colors are delightful and perfect for this design
This gorgeous rug is being hooked by Therese Schick.  Her hooking is so even and beautiful!
 Debbie Walsh is working on this large rug...her pineapple and her flowers are perfection!
 Deb Nees is working on Peace & Plenty (a Notforgotten Farm design)...I love her beautiful soft fall colors.
Char Lough designed this rug...inspired by the beavers she saw in the waters behind her house.  She added a big full moon.  Much time was spent hooking detail in the beaver's face.  I can't wait to see the finished product!
Jeri Livingston was working on a Polly Minick design.  It's not easy to work with monochromatic hues but Jeri has done a good job.  She will be hooking over Santa's beard with mohair curls.
 This is an original design that Joan Skicism's husband had drawn up for her.  Another wonderful piece!
 This is the Never Never rug, being hooked by Joan Whiteford.  Joan is a prolific rug hooker....this is a REALLY big rug and Joan got a lot accomplished at camp.
 Katie Simonson was hooking soft light colors in her Antique Runner.
Susan Walsdorf was working on this wonderful bird design.  She wanted to use different shades of primitive blues and the trick was to mix it all up so that there was enough contrast for each bird.
An original design by Nancy Weaver...she was hooking this for her granddaughter.  A lovely selection of colors!
I am extremely proud of my Cape May students for their rug hooking abilities!  Thank you all for such a wonderful class!
