What to Hook at Cape May?

Although I am presently hooking the Two Chickens rug for someone, so at least have something to do, my mind is spinning about what to hook at Cape May.  My teacher is Bev Conway and she is great with whimsy and color so figured I would take a pattern that has been in my stash for a couple years.  It was love at first sight when I saw  it on the Vermont Folk Art web site and just had to have it.  Part of it was probably the colors in the rug which was shown as hooked by Rebecca Erb.  
This printed picture, now scanned, does not give justice to the piece that was on the web sight that I fell in love with oh so many years ago.  While I still do love the design it measures 24 x 50 and wasn't really wanting to hook another big rug (big for me that is) because I will attend another rug camp in November and will start yet another project.  And, it doesn't really go with my decor because I have mostly antique furniture.  Hmm, now that I think about it maybe I could put it in front of the jacuzzi garden bath and it would be cute to look at each morning when I walk thru.  

Tho I have searched thru magazines, all my patterns on linen and most of my patterns on paper which could be blown up and drawn legally by me, this is still the one most on my mind.  This was one of the designs I'd thought of listing on e-bay the next go around but maybe I'll wait until after Cape May to list this one and see what I decide.

Thanks for visiting and thanks newbie, for following my blog.



  1. I like it, but wondering if you will go for something else.

  2. I have looked at that rug several times wondering if I should hook it. I took a 2 day class with Bev conway I love her. She has a great color class! I love her patterns.
    She usually wears red shoes.
    have fun I wish I were going.

    What a fun pattern! I have mostly antiques, too, and I would not hesitate to display it with them. I agree ~ I consider it a huge rug, too.
    Pug hugs :)

  4. Hi, Saundra,
    Lucky you, off to another rug camp. I like the bicycle design, it is very whimsical.


  5. So cute! I hope you have loads of fun and inspiration at rug camp. hugs Cheri
