On September 29-October 1, I was privileged to take the wonderful 3 in 1 Creative Workshop, a primitive rug hooking class right here in historic Tipp City, Ohio.  The three nationally known teachers were Ali Strebel, Nola Heidbreder, and Karen Kahle.  They offered a different approach to a rug hooking class, in that different patterns could be interpreted many different way, thus everyone's rug was different.  

The subject this year was Geometrics and this is how I chose to interpret my design.  Much care was taken to make the hit or miss design look like an antique rug, following Karen's advice and examples.   I learned so much about color values and what all you can mix into lights and darks.

The class was wonderful and the shopping for hand dyed wools and other goodies in their shops was to die for!!

So, what do you think?  Does it look like an old antique rug?
