This one is hooked in 3/8" cut, from as found and over-dyed wools. I like the way it turned out and really love this pattern!
I wanted to get an apron to wear when hooking to protect sweaters and shirts from being snagged by the carding strips on my frame, so I bought an apron that I liked on Overstock.com and added some fun "rug hooking elements" in wool applique and embroidery. The adorable rug hooker pin is by Vicki Hardcastle. The apron turned out pretty cute, and I have added some of my collected pins to make it even more fun. The flag is painted on a tiny piece of slate. Love the result:
This is what we do in our rug group, "Wool Ewe Join Us Rug Hookers." We hook some and talk a lot! Anyway, it was a fun project....and very useful.
I have found a couple of little treasures lately while out and about in my favorite shops:
This primitive rabbit was so cute, I couldn't pass it up.
I LOVE little chairs (doll or children's), so when I saw this little white doll chair at a reasonable price, I snapped it up. My collection is growing!
Hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. God bless all those who have served our country in the armed services and much gratitude to the families who sacrifice so much to make us safe and free. THANK YOU.
