Fanciful Flower Sampler Workshop

Did we have fun!

The Stash Sisters are some of the most creative women I have ever had the pleasure of rug hooking with. None are afraid of color and experimenting with fabrics. Each came with the sampler top sewn and we first worked on the sunflower, talked about daisies and leaves, and in a couple of hours all had their sampler tops well underway.

I loved the way in which each person made the sampler top her own. Sondra and Sylvia put some blocks of linen in, so that they could hook some elements on their samplers.

Martha used black and white plaids for her sampler top which gave her a wonderful neutral but stunning canvas for prodding.

Louise, Janie and Annie combined bright wools for tops that show off with limes and plums and oranges.

P.D. worked on Mr. Toad's Garden and used an outstanding mottled wool for sunflower leaves.

I can't wait to see the progress on these pieces in a few weeks!
