Donna Hrkmann Workshop

The Crescent Lane Rug hookers invited Donna Hrkman for a workshop this past February.  (   She is a amazing teacher and we all loved her class.  Please visit her web page to see all the amazing things she has accomplished in her life, career, and her 8 years of hooking.  We have all agreed that we need her back for another workshop.  If you ever have a chance to take a class from her, GO for it!  You will be amazed as to what she can help you do.

I chose to do my cat "Fluffy" that passed away last year.  I think I captured her (or his, we never could determine) expression from the only decent photo I had.  Fluffy showed up at our doorstep about 5 years ago very matted and hungry.  I think Max brought her to us as they seemed to be great friends.  It took about 4 months to win her over and cut all her mats out of her hair.  That is when I discovered that she had been de-clawed and spayed/neutered.  She had golf ball size mats, I honestly do not know how she could sleep without them pressing against her.  She was a beautiful and sweet cat.  Her job was to help fold the clothes and to lay on my rugs when I put them down to look at them.  Max grieved for a week.  I miss her so much.

  1. Your rug looks exactly like the photograph - good job! I sure wish Donna would start blogging - it's so fun to get to 'know' someone through their blogs!
