artist of the month

Teena Hughs

Hello, my name is Teena Carson Hughs. My parents were Charlie and Ernestine Carson, and my husband, Feller and I moved into their home about a year ago. It is good to be back in this area!!!

In the summer of 1969, Mother had surgery and she decided that while she was recovering, I needed something to keep me busy. We mad a trip to Ben Franklin's Five and Dime on Getty Street, and I picked out a piece of stamped cross stitch. I finished it that summer, and after that, I embroidered and knitted some.

When I was in graduate school at Texas Tech from 1979-81, a friend told me about taking a piece of blank fabric with squares all over it, and using a pattern to sew a design on the fabric. She said it was similar to stamped cross stitch, but still different. She described a finished piece of strawberries sh had seen and how beautiful it was. I remember thinking there was no way I would ever do something like that!!! You should "never say never"! Following graduate school, I went to work at Midland College. Midland had a fabulous needlepoint store, and one of the girls I worked with helped out there. So, while there, I did some stockings and pillows. Feller and I got married in 1982, and we moved to Fort Stockton, where there was another fabulous knitting, needlepoint, and counted cross stitch store. I continued to knit and needlepoint with the help of the store's truly awesome owners, Phyllis and Madie Dixon.

I received a catalog in the mail, and I found this country alphabet sampler that I fell in love with. I ordered it, and as they say, "the rest is history." Counted cross stitch is my passion. i am 67, but I still have a filing cabinet of pictures I want to make. I don't know where I would put them, but I still want to make them.

My favorite things to make are Christmas Pictures, WELCOMEs, Christian scenes and sayings, country alphabets, and geese. One of my current projects is a baby sampler for my four-month-old grandson, Olen Mack. This is the first time I have ever shown my work. I hope something you see will bring a smile to your face!

New Programs at the Camp Wood Public Library

             Beginning in February, the Camp Wood Public Library will offer two new programs. Our first program will be entitled Toddlers, Tales and Treasures. We invite parents and their toddlers to check out this new program. The program will be on the 4th Thursday of each month beginning at 11 am. Our first meeting will be on February 24th. We will read to the children, engage them in an activity and provide snacks for the parents and toddlers.

            Our second program will be an opportunity for those patrons that like to engage in craftwork. We will begin our Camp Wood Make and Take on February 23rd at 2 pm.  Our first project will be a scarf made out of felt with creative decorations. Going forward we will meet on the 4th Wednesday @ 2pm. Please register for the Make and Take at the library so that we will have enough materials on hand.  If you have ideas for the crafts, stop by the library. If you are interested in demonstrating how to put a craft together, please call the Camp Wood Public Library at 830-597-3208. We hope to see you at either or both of these events.
