Alice has a definite artistic flair and her attention to detail is amazing. She did two large rugs for her grand-nieces that she designed herself ,which turned into beautiful wall hangings, making every viewer break into a big smile. She also made several other smaller rugs representing scenes and flowers, which often turned into cushions.
Alice served as president from 2003 to 2004 and as secretary for one year. Although she no longer hooks, she enjoys getting news about the guild from me. She is still warmly remembered as a fun member of the guild.

Lauren Elizabeth and the Big Honey Hunt
This rug was hooked with love for my grand-niece, Lauren Elizabeth. I designed and drew the piece myself and hooked some parts using wool from clothing worn by Lauren’s grandfather. I hope it will be an amazing reminder to Lauren of her great-aunt's love.
These two round cushions have been conceived as a pair. My goal was to create a subtle floral design using multiple shades of purple colour and a white background.
For this piece I hooked 3 different flowers in a triangle surrounded by foliage and small flower buds to form a circle.
For this piece I placed an open flower at the center surrounded by others at different angles and sizes to balance the composition.
This pillow has 5 stylized tulips arranged in a circle with a black background to provide a good contrast. The curved leaves help create an interesting design.
For this oval piece I used a variety of shapes and sizes of flowers. Different colours and shades helped create contrast.
