Judy Cripps Workshop

Do you know what a beauty line is?  If you are putting a two color border on your rug, do you know which goes to the outside - the lighter or darker color?

Well, if you were one of the twelve gals at Saltbox Primitive Woolens last Saturday (October 23) you would know the answers.  We were fortunate to have Judy Cripps from Rustic Rugs in Topeka, Kansas conducting a "Borders" Workshop.  Each participant was able to choose one of two rugs Judy designed just for this workshop.  Here are the samples of the two rugs.  The first one is Patty's Saltbox the second one is Debbie's House of Doom.

Judy Cripps has been rug hooking since 1985 when she and her friend, Lynda, started taking classes in fine hooking from Margaret Masters.   Judy brought some of her rugs to show the different kinds of borders and gave tips on each of them.  Each person received individual help from Judy in designing their border.  Judy shared all kinds of tips for rug hooking with the group.  It was a fun day, enjoyed by all.  Here is Judy at the workshop.

These are pictures of some of Judy's rugs she brought to the workshop.  Take notice of the different borders on the rugs.

I will post more pictures of Judy's rugs and the workshop participants later.

One another, different note - Warsaw Girls Softball played Palmyra for 1st place last weekend in the State Playoffs.  After a weather delay on Saturday, the game resumed in the fourth inning on Monday.  Warsaw won, 4-0.  Our niece, Mackensie Wallace, who is a sophomore, was on the winning team and hit an out-of-the-park home run in the championship game.  This is Makensie with the 1st place trophy.

Congratulations Mackensie and all the Lady Wildcats!  We are proud of you!
