Ahhhh, feels better hooking with colors and designs more in my comfort zone.  Magdalena's Folk Art Horse went back on my frame.  This is what I was working on before attending Cape May rug camp but set it aside.
FYI, the Ali Katz rug has been steamed, all the three rows of pre-sewing around the perimeter of the foundation done in preparation of the wool whipped edge.  I will enjoy the Ali Katz rug and I DO appreciate and admire bright colored rugs others hook; but for some reason it isn't  comforting for me to hook with those colors.  Perhaps I'm just an old soul who lived in a time when those OLD rugs were used. 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend.



  1. I love the colors in this rug too. It looks like a quick hooking project with wider cuts. I only tried wider cuts from a kit give away that I won and it hooked so fast. I was taught on narrow cuts and I love details and perhaps that's why I stayed with the narrow cut.

    I'm always amazed at how fast everyone hook their primitive rugs. It always takes me longer to hook with fine cuts.


  2. I too am a old soul . I like the dark colors so much more it seems to me more traditional. Hugs cheri

  3. This is beautiful !!
    I think it is good to stretch yourself and work in different mediums.
    You did a beautiful job with the colorful rug ;)
