Prairie Rose Rug School 2016

This was another amazing year for Prairie Rose Rug School 2016 at Assumption Abbey in Richardton, SD.There were 40 of us this year which took a little getting used to since we aren't usually that big, but you know what they say, "The more the merrier!" and the saying is right.

My teacher this year was Ingrid Hieronimus. If you ever have a chance to take a class from her I highly recommend it. Her sense of color and design are outstanding. 
I am doing a design by Monika Jones, Folk Art Landing, and we did a grid in the background for a design that you can barely see at the bottom. One square is gold metallic and the other is silver metallic with different colored stripes. The reds and purples were colors I dyed but the golds, blue, and dip dyed greens are all Ingrid. The solid gold has the gold metallic. I wish this showed more of the detail. What ever I did on one side, I switched around on the other side. 

This rug got so many compliments and I understand there was a lot of talk about it. Pris Butler, another teacher, kept coming by to see what else we had done to it. 

Ingrid was so much fun. If I ever have a chance to take another class from her I will be there. I think I'm her new groupie. 

The Monks take such good care of all of us and the kitchen catered to my celiac. I had so much fun that I can't wait to go again next year.

Check out our group blog at to see what others were working on and soon I will put the rug show up.

Am I understanding this right? That you're going to hook a checkerboard for the background? I think that's a great idea! Love your colors and flowers are always a winner in my book!
