The rug below is an antique adaptation I named Cats Meow and was hooked by Sue Swank. Sue took a some creative license and added a few additional critters to fill in empty space. Good job Sue!
I've sold numerous E.S. Frost Sheep patterns and here are a few of the Frost's version with birds and flowers. First one is hooked by Lisa Halverson.
This one was hooked by Kathy Clark of Briarwood Folk Art.
Melinda Cole hooked this colorful version below and like how she chose to do hooked triangles making it less fussy and much easier for her I'm sure> I like how it turned out ~ Nice job Melinda!
Another color palate of the E.S. Frost design was hooked by Susan Foley.
Susan decided to hook another for her other adult child since they both loved the design so drew another for her to hook. Here is the second one, would you hook a rug twice???
Someone else liked the new Magdalena Goat discovery and it was hooked by Kathy Applegate.
Susan Traughber asked me to draw another Magdalena rug The Farm.
A neighbor admired Susan's work so much she decided to hook a rug to surprised him. So Harvey's Magdalena was in the works and a very appreciative young man. Susan I'd say you are one great neighbor and hook beautifully too!
Then Lisa decided to do a
Country Cottage is an antique adaptation I drew, this one was hooked by Pamela Gunn.
Floral Theorem was another pattern I drew for Pam. After seeing her rendition and learned she used mostly #8.5 but some #8 I might be tempted to hook it myself.
Lisa Halverson loves hearts almost as much as she loves horses. I drew this antique adaptation I call Hearty Heart because of its size.
She also requested I draw this 1931 Hearts antique. Lisa visited my blog to see the partially hooked one and sent me a finished photo. Love the mix of colors she used in the hearts and background. It is much warmer than the original. Thanks Lisa and great work.
Another antique adaptation Lisa hooked is one I named Hearts and Penny Flowers. And look at that lovely heart hanging on the lock of her antique cabinet which compliments the heart theme.
So Lisa if you're reading this I'd love to get a photo of the one above, Doves & Basket, Hearts-A-Plenty, Horses and Tree, and probably not started yet (because it is garden time) is White/Grey Horse with Scrolls.
Will save the Domestic Zoo photos for another blog post.
Those folks to whom I've drawn a pattern, if you don't think you've sent me a photo of your rugs, please do so you can make it in my next rug show. Happy hooking everyone.
