Some Rugs I've Hooked

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.



  1. thanks for the fix...would love to hook a chicken rug for a friend some day...yours is great...

  2. These are all wonderful rugs, always fun to see what others have done and the wools you use, tempting me to pull out a rug.


  3. You hook the neatest rugs!
    I hope the commission rug is hooking quickly.
    Hugs :)
