In the beginning of 2016 this is what was on my frame.
Woolley Fox design but I changed it up a tad.
And then the Out of Hand Rug Hookers group decided on a new challenge lead by Kelley Belfast.
After the Rainbow Cabin decided to start a Christmas gift for my grandson. So his Christmas gift was started very early on to give me time to set it aside and hook something different.
But going to rug camps I'd start something different and hook on Zach's rug while waiting my turn for the teacher.
The above pattern by Karen Kahle called "Simple Gifts" was a pattern purchased at a rug camp from someone wanting to downsize. Since I had no clue where to start or what colors I'd want decided to take it to my mentor beloved Barb Carroll. Looking at it makes me happy and like looking at a brand new bright day ahead.
Then came NED, another antique adaptation offered by Woolley Fox. Poor Ned went thru many tweaks until I was happy with him. In retrospect tho, wish I'd done what Lauren did and change the butterfly to a flower.
Above is a design called "Turkey and Tallowberries" which is a design by Lori Brechlin and offered in pattern by Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studio.
Another design by Lori and hooked in a class with Kris Miller is the "Do Good Be Nice" design. That Goode witch takes time out of her day to have her nails done.
The last two rugs started and finished in 2016 were the last two written about yesterday. .... Red Lion adaptation......
If anyone has questions about hooking please ask...If I don't know the answer I'll research for you to give you the answer. Happy Hooking.
