Since I'm still working on the commission rug thought I'd feed your thirst for blogging and show you some rugs I've hooked. The one below is a design by Bev Conway. The original design had the hens sitting on a large egg each but I wanted them on a bed of straw.
This is Birds and Pomegranates, a design by Edyth O'Neil and it was taken from the pattern offered in a book, but forget which book right now. It is residing somewhere in the New England states.
This is Two Chickens, a design by Polly Minick .
The one below I named "The Olde Gals" and was adapted, with permission, by the quilt designer. I added the tree outline and grass for framing. Before deciding to hook this my plans were to hook Deanne Fitzpatrick's "Coastal Girls". But since I was going thru a divorce decided the olde gals needed to stick together; they may no longer have the youth and beauty but they were wiser and a strong lot who had the friendship of one another for support.
This is an antique adaptation and I chose to hook only one of the two horses.
Obviously I've many more rug pictures that I've hooked but this will give you a bit of eye candy when you need a hooking fix.
