Careful What You Ask For

A few months ago one or more of my followers asked me to post photos of the rugs I'd hooked.  Don't think you knew what you were getting yourself into and wonder how many of you are now bored.

You know that I love Magdalena Briner Eby and have hooked a few of her designs.  One such was Lollipop Bouquet and was dreading the 66 circles.  Or at least that is the number that is embedded in my head as I'd counted them out back in 2013.  Feel free to count those circles and correct me.
Strange thing is this was a most enjoyable rug to hook, loved every minute of it as my pre-cut wool strips in whatever size was used and just pulled from the proper color baggie.

In 2014 I drew and have sold a few patterns of what I call "The Cat's Meow" which is an antique adaptation.  The photo was taken with a flash but in real life the wool was overdyed for a dirty look.
This is the inspiration for the design and I received permission from the owner.
In a class with Betsy Reed I hooked an antique adaptation  of what I've called hearts and swags.  It was made into a big cushy pillow.  Naturally the photo was taken with a flash and is more bright than in person.
Hey..... I didn't get all the pictures posted as I'd planned for this blogpost but will do more tomorrow.  Have a good evening.
