Waldoboro Mat St. Lawrence Completed

Posted by grantma@mcmaster.ca on November 25, 2017 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

I finally finished tthe Large Waldoboro Mat which I've been working on (not regularly) for about 4 years.  What a joy.  It was finished in time for the Heritage Rug Hooking Guild of New Brunswick, Fredericton exhibition at Government House.  I am really thrilled with it, although preparing it for hanging was quite the challenge.  

Need more work on this

Well, I thought I had it done correctly, but pictures would sure help the list of courses.  Will work at it and get them on within the next week.  Sorry for those who would love to see what I'm planning.  Mary

New Years Resolution 2017

Well.  It is evident that I don't check my web site too often....almost let it die an unnatural death. 

My resolution is to check it out at least on a monthly basis, add photos of the rugs I have not added in the past years and generally keep in better touch.  Today, I am listing the courses I have scheduled for 2017 both in the blog and under the Courses page.

Hope you enjoy the selection.  Mary

Happy New Year 2015

It has been an eventful year as I have spent most of it learning to live on my own again.  My husband Don was my main support and fan, a real cheerleader.  Each day brings wonderful memories of our years together.  It has also brought challenges as he originally set up my web site and being a ludite, I never checked out what my password was.  Obviously I rose to that challenge and many others as well.  Family support has been wonderful.  I look forward to the com...

It's been a busy summer and I have been very fortunate to have been selected for 2 Artist in Residence programs.  I spent a week at the casements, sharing the space with Melissa LeBlanc an accomplished clay scuptor.  The past 2 weeks and this week I am at the Fredericton Region Museum.  I even have a floor frame set up with a hit and miss pattern for people to try.  I've been working on a large Waldoboro style mat as well.  This style of hooking is very much related t...

We are off tomorrow for a trip to The Rock.  I will be teaching Waldoboro Style hooking at Twin Ponds 3 day rug school.  I'm really excited.  My husband Don is going with me and we will end the week with a few days of sightseeing and R&R.  One full bag of wool dyed for the various student projects.  a few samples, and packing everything else into a second bag and carry-on luggage.  Will add pictures when I return.

Visit me in the window of M&T Deli

Posted by grantma@mcmaster.ca on July 2, 2013 at 1:50 PM

It isn't exactly a mat challenge, but it is indeed a challenge. From Monday to Saturday this week, I am the artist in the window at the M&T Deli in downtown Fredericton. I mapped out the floor space in my living room with painter's tape and arranged my shelves and items, leaving sufficient room for my frame, cutter table and chair. I am h...
