"The Little Gardener" Hooked rug Progress-Sunnie/rug hooking/hooked rugs/folk art-Days-4-6

I am delighted to have found a way to hook the large border on this rug without taking away from the Center!!!!!!   :)

Of course this piece could have been hooked in a more traditional manner  with the colours I thought about so many years ago…with the dogwood blossoms in the border done in pink or pale pink and cream and the little girl in pale pastel colours.    342 more words

As I said last post, I have a bit of the wool I used back then so I decided to hook the sky and added new blue wool to the mix.    414 more words

UFO…from 12 years ago!!!!!!   :)

Recovering from a little surgery yesterday so I am resting and not hooking for a few days.   However, I was doing a bit of sorting last week and came up with a piece that I had started hooking on Monk’s cloth about 12 years ago. 173 more words

Shapes in Life-Rolls and Pipes

Time to work large, the subject warrants attention and big draws people to look. 

I cut off a piece of linen 60″ x 80″ which leaves a maximum finished size of 54″ x 74″ or two runners 26″ x 74″ (after excess to put on the frame). 482 more words

answering a letter about being a young mother and hooking rugs...from the archives

This is a favorite post from the archives. It is a response to a young mother who wrote me a letter in 2013….

Dear Diary, I have had lots of interesting responses and conversations about the question I posed Why have knitting and quilting have become so popular, while rug hooking remains more obscure. 1,190 more words

Old and New Studies

What a privilege I have been offered to study and mount one of the McDonald Sister’s rugs.

Linking up, through a referral from the State Museum archivist, with the owner of two pieces has lead to hearing stories of the original purchase in the late 1960’s directly from the sisters, the “home life” of these textiles in their family rooms for years and for the past two decades tucked away in guest bedrooms in their summer cottage always on the floor. 605 more words
