The New One......On my Frame

There's still a bit of binding to do on the previous two hooked rugs but cannot stand to not hook something.  Okay, there is a story behind this piece.  
My dear friend Evelyn Lawrence was perusing Barb Carroll's contact page and saw a photo of a lion she admired.  

Evelyn asked if I knew anything about a particular lion piece.  Went to Barb's site and looked for what Evelyn tried to describe.  After several emails it was determined which lion she was speaking of.  

Figuring it was a design in the Woolley Fox pattern book started thumbing thru to find the pattern.  AH HA!  While no pattern of that piece Evelyn spoke about, did find a pattern named "Jayne's Birthday Rug".  That had a drawing of the very same lion design in it.  

Next job was for me to email Bill Laraway who designed the rug for his lovely woman.... (seems I'm a detective of sorts don't you think?). It appears the single lion may have been a gift to Barb hooked by her friend Jayne.

I emailed Bill and asked if that pattern was for sale and if so, could he please draw two patterns of the lion.  One for me and was planning to surprise Evelyn with a pattern as well.  As of this posting Evelyn has already hooked and bound hers.  Can't wait to see it.



  1. What an interesting story about this rug, can't wait to see more of it.


  2. Yes, a very interesting story.

    Time will bring something good from it.
