Seemed only fitting for me to use purple text again when talking about Barb. In the previous post you saw the first rug hooked with Barb, which was Kinderhook Basket. The next rug hooked at camp with her was Woodland Deer, another Woolley Fox design under the category Keeping the Past Alive. You can see the purple in numerous leaves spread about the trees.
American Folk Art Rug Hooking and has 18 projects inside.
An E.S. Frost Sheep was a 'must have' for me and there were a couple versions but the one with scrolls is the one I knew Barb could help me with. Even tho scrolls were very intimidating it seemed my home needed to have one. So figured if anyone could hold my hand thru the job it would be Barb. Doesn't this look rich and old with the worn spots? It hangs over my fireplace.
Next rug hooked at a Barb class was Brave Hunter; yes, another Woolley Fox design. Now here is another story you may find interesting. There were two of us in class who just happened to be hooking that same design. Each turned out way different due to our individual wool color choices taken. Here is mine and I can see the purple even without tapping on the photo to enlarge it.
The following year I hooked Lion in the Woods, a pattern gifted me by my friend Evelyn Lawrence. It is an antique adaptation offered by Port Primitives. WHAT?????? Could it be we missed putting purple in this rug? I enlarged it and don't see any purple. Maybe I'll have to pull that rug out and hook some in somewhere.
HERE. Don't know her schedule but if you contact her I'm sure you will hear back.
Have a great evening everyone and happy hooking. BTW, I hook summer as well, for my hooking isn't just a winter project. With summertime chores it does curtail the amount of time spent with a hook in my hand but enjoy the journey anyway.
