Magdalena's Olde Ducks is what I hooked in a class with Betsy Reed and is presently on my harvest table.
I miss my girl Shadow and after having hooked my Rottweiler Memorial in #3 told Shadow 'she was a wide cut sorta girl'. So hooked Shadow in #8 in a class with Diane Stoffel. Shadow's Memorial is hanging on the wall to the left of me.Woolrights Guild Blog. Visit the site and you can view all the entries. I bound the rug using Betsy Reed's primitive binding technique and think it adds to the old look.
For several years the Granny Geometric was a UFO....I mean SEVERAL years. Finally found the determination to finish this. You can even see how my hooking evolved and my finally learning how to make sharp corners. You can see the difference in some of the blocks. Another great way for me to use up those excess wool strips.
Magdalena's Farm was a rug hooked with Barb Carroll, another Magdalena design.
Even tho there are always numerous rug patterns in my stash I continually end up drawing an antique adaptation to hook. Such was the case for this Antique Pot of Flowers.
In 2014 my friend Evelyn told me she was teaching a class at Sauder on Harriet Powers Bible Quilts and Granny Donaldson's cow blanket applique. So took that as a challenge for myself and told Evelyn my plan to design a small piece from a Harriet Powers' Bible quilt block. If you would like to read the article I wrote about it on my blog in 2014, click HERE.
That is Evelyn's humor but at Cape May when she returned the mat to me for the show there, and upon picking up our rugs after that show, I presented Evelyn with the rug as a token of our friendship.
Lucky me, I was the winner of a give-away for the Duluth Pumpkin kit offered by Maria Barton of Star Rug Company.
Afterward decided to design my own pumpkins mat. I've always wanted a collection of vintage paper mache' Jack-O-lanterns....well I'd be happy with just one frankly. So decided to design a rug pattern called Mache' Jacks. It measures 15 x 25 and costs $30.
That year I finally decided to hook an adaptation of the old Santa and Deer pattern.
Have a great evening everyone.
