West Virginia, still on my mind

Here are a few more photos from Susan Feller's Retreat into the Mountains.  The Sunday afternoon rug "throw down" on the front porch was bigger and better than ever!

This 6" x 8" beauty was designed by Katherine Porter and hooked by Shirley Hairston.  It took Shirley a year to hook and it will grace her living room floor.

The "Virginia Fraktur" rug on the left was designed by Barb Carroll and hooked by Liz Gordon, using some paisley fabric in the bird's body. The rug on right was designed and hooked by Liz Gordon.  She combined an antique coverlet lion and a Penn Dutch bookplate design.

These rugs were designed by Katie Allman.  The upper rug was hooked by Melissa Masterson.  The lower rug was hooked by Lauren Fuqua.  Lauren blogs about hooked rugs.  Check out her blog, Rugs and Pugs.

This beauty (awaiting its border) was designed and hooked by Beth Tembo.  It's inspired by designs found in Kuba textiles made in Democratic Republic of the Congo (formerly Zaire).
