While awaiting Polly Minick's new book I thought I'd post a few pictures of things I've hooked from her designs. She thought she'd put it in the mail to me but when I opened the package it was other stuff she meant to send as well, but forgot to put the book in. It is in the mail now and am anxious to see which of her designs are in this one. I'm pretty sure I can guess tho....... sailboat, flags in sand pail, flags in water can, vintage swimsuit, maybe an oar, lighthouse?
I just adore this rug of the boy pulling the dog in a wagon...Oh, maybe that is in the book too, or perhaps her larger version Fourth of July Parade.
This one was the first of her designs I hooked as part of her Semper Fi endeavor. That is where the proceeds of kits sold was donated to the Wounded Marine Foundation, for those of you who may not know Polly is very passionate about making contributions to the wounded military foundation Semper Fi.
I liked hooking this sand pail rug as well and think it was the following year's Semper Fi offering. Her last of series of four designs last year I didn't hook tho.... I loved them all and particularly want to hook the vintage swim suit one. But, too many rugs too little time.
These small purses were quick and fun to do. The evening bag was hooked with black eyelash yarn and silver yarn. That one wasn't so much fun to hook tho.
She does a really great job on her books; Victory Girls is a nice book too with different motifs that could be adapted to various rug designs and has great vintage pictures in there. If you would like to see her book collection you can see them offered here: http://www.minickandsimpson.com/catalog.php?category=1
