Just Gail....., as you are a NO-REPLY Blogger was not able to email you directly about the dye book. If anyone wishes to get a reply from me who is a NRB you need to use the 'email me' section on the right side bar.
Below is a pattern by Vermont Folk Art called Fall is Here. The background wool I over dyed and probably from the same book. Sadly this sold but would love to hook it again one day. Problem is there are so many other rugs on my 'to do' list that it seems a shame to hook something else again.
That same year I hooked Sally Kallin's design "Harry". Sue Hamer was my teacher that year and she wanted me to hook Harry's face in a smaller strip but held tight to my convictions. Sue was an excellent teacher, very prepared and lots of wonderful prep for her students. Was quite impressed with her.
Below is a cat rug I sold. For the life of me cannot recall if this was someone's design or if I drew this myself. The yellow background was over-dyed and ecstatic it turned out exactly as I'd hoped because sometimes dye jobs didn't. Oh, this photo was taken on my deck and is also washed out.
Mad Hen. How fun and funky is this?? Of course I used Tonya's over dyed wool to hook this and give it 'her' look. MISS YOU TONYA.
So there ya have it albeit all the small purses, small mats and dolls being made during that time.
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!!!
