I certainly enjoyed the Queen Ann Rose course. And not surprisingly I learned a lot too. There are two obvious skills to be learned from the Queen Ann Rose course. The first is to make a the Queen Ann’s Lace flower – or more importantly – how to make a dot! And of course the second is to make a beautiful primitive rose and rosebud. More important is that what I learned from this class that had little to do with flowers. First was how NOT to hook in a straight line. It sounds strange but take the course and you will understand. It is part of making a beautiful rose, and part of being a skilled hooker. The second surprisingly valuable skill I learned is to NOT put the unused portion of a strip in your “noodle basket”. Take that half a strip and go on to another area of the rug and use it up. I can’t count the ways that it helps with hooking – but I will just say neatness, organization and efficiency for starters. It is one of the most important things I have learned from you Cindi.
