I know my posts have been infrequent last month. I got really busy at work, and then got sick. My rug hooking slowed down, but didn't cease. The one thing I accomplished last month was designing and hooking a sample of a caddy for the Palette Dyeing class that I will be teaching this coming August at Sauder. I thought it would be fun while the dye pots are simmering in the class, to be learning about color theory and hooking a caddy as a handy reference to that theory.
I think it turned out cute. It is made from one piece of linen, even including the handles, with minimal sewing. In fact, the sewing can even be done by hand if a machine is not available. The overall size is 20"by 14"by 6". So it holds lots of stuff, even my cutter and supplies. In the picture I stuffed it with skeins of yarn.
The link to my workshop is on the Sauder Village website, and it just went live today. Registration for the Sauder retreat and all the workshops and classes begins on Wednesday, November 9 at 10 am EST.
