I've been missing in action because I found a fun niche of women in my neighborhood who also have a passion for paper arts and we've been playing in paper instead of wool in my neck of the woods (I still haven't found any hookers in my immediate community). I'm not posting pictures of my paper arts work yet, but it has kept me away from my first love: rug hooking.
So to get back into a hooking groove, I'm posting some pictures of my most recent rug. This is the pattern I started at Cambria Pines Rug Camp in June. It is called "Birds, Bees and Honey Please." To mix it up a bit, I experimented with some trapunto (stuffing) techniques in this rug. It added a fun change in the overall appearance of the rug.
Here is a good source for reading more about trapunto as it is used in quilting: http://www.museum.state.il.us/muslink/art/htmls/ks_tech_t.html

I used the trapunto technique in the bee skep, the heart and the round part of the sun..
