Class with Cee's~"Diamond Vintage Wool Rug".

Time to change gears and do something different.
I signed up with Cee Rafuse, of "The Diary of a Rugmaker",
  for this 'Diamond Vintage Wool Rug'  Class.


The subtle, muted colors really caught my attention.
I watched some of her tutorials, and was able to get this set up.
Best I wait for her class ... don't want to miss something 
and get off to a bad start.


About 8 years ago, I made one of my self taught 
versions of a Penny Rug. 
Here is a current picture, including dust and lint.
 It is done with burlap background,
attached to a black wool backing and lined with 
black and white ticking.
I love the texture of burlap. However, recently found out that 
it has a life expectancy of about 20 years.
Well, we will cross that bridge,
if I am still around, in 12 more years.
I am not sorry I used the burlap ... I still love the texture. 
So for now, I am eager to get advice, and some guidance
from an expert.  Really can't wait for class to begin.

Thanks for visiting,
I plan to show updates of the class progress.

Have a super, great week, with, 
Folk Art Hugs and Peace for All,
