|This was my favorite of the show. My husband swore it was a quilt when I showed him the picture. Unfortunately this was the first photo I took in the show and I forgot to take a photo of the label so I don't know the designer or hooker.|

|Flag/Summer Hooked by Teri Hedrick - Designed by Donna Bennett/Crows on the Ledge|
|"Never Enough Wool" Hooked by Stacie Sidie - Designed by New Earth Design. |
This is one of my favorites and hopefully someday I will hook it too.
|"Isobel" Hooked and Designed by Karen Detrick.|
Not my favorite colors, but I love sheep and swirls, so this is one of my favs too!
How the colors fade from dark to light throughout each swirl is so neat!
|"Folk Art Rug" Hooked by Joy Troyer, designer unknown. |
I loved this one too. Reminds me of a quilt.
|"Flag" Hooked by Norma Wagner - Designed by Polly Minick|
|"All American Proddy Sheep" Hooked by Debra Pavlock - Designed by Alice Fraizer.|
Such a fun rug! I've never seen a rug edged with proddy too.
|Here is a different view of the Proddy Sheep so you can see the different textures. Debra even hooked the sheep's head a little higher and with a fun textured wool to give more dimension. Love the bell!|
|Hooked by Nancy Roshon.|
Sorry about the weird blur across the bottom. The only label on this rug was the hooker's name.
I know I've seen this rug before so if you know the designer please let me know so that I can give them credit.
|"Acorn" Hooked by Shari Stout - Designer not listed|
|"Three Flowers" Hooked by Julie McCoy - Designed by Primitive Grace|
|"Five Sheep" Hooked by Dianne Wright - Designed by Melody Hoops|
Weren't the rugs beautiful?!?! I didn't take photos of all of them. I wasn't sure how I was going to remember all of the names and didn't want to write them all down as that would take me forever, so I snapped a photo of the rug and then took a close-up of the label with enough of the rug showing so that I could make sure to know which label went with it, though the name of the pattern helps too. So that's my tip for you the next time you are at a rug show. : )
The featured artist was Sibyl Osicka. She does fine cut work. Her rugs almost look like paintings! We are at different ends of the rug hooking spectrum (I love primitive), but I can admire the talent that's for sure!
I have a few more pictures to show you tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed the rugs. : )
