Yesterday at guild we had a bit of show and tell – actually I was demonstrating showbinding finish and took a few pictures of some of the finished pieces people had brought along and some finishing in progress:

The following rugs were all hooked by Marie…
HPIM4295  HPIM4296  HPIM4297  HPIM4298  HPIM4299  HPIM4300  Marie attaching showbinding to her Martina Lesar Star Pony rug…hooked mostly with Jen Manuels bundles of precut mixed wools!…HPIM4301

Elizabeth inherited a lovely stash of semi completed rugs from a retiring rughooker and is gradually finishing them all off. The original hooker did her own very geometric, contemporary or abstract designs. This is the most recent rug to be almost finished all in recycled as is woolens…HPIM4302

Helen with her rug hooked entirely in Briggs and Little single ply (like hooking a number 2 cut!!!) working on her showbinding…and then my camera died (again!)…HPIM4303

  1. Hi Loretta
    Can you explain “show binding” to me? I have done the whipstitched over cording, wool over cording, and whipstitched with yarn and tape. Thanks for your help

    Impressive hooking, ladies!!!
    Every loop a wee bit of sheer perfection.

  3. Hi, Where can I buy one of the patterns in todays’s blog….I liked the lamb…..what size is it? I bought and finished one of your canvases( two chickens) at rosy’s house in the spring tour and gave it to my granddaughter last week for her engagement gift. We live in Woodlawn- Dunrobin.

    • Hi Joanna that is great – the show at Rosy’s was so nice! So glad you enjoyed hooking the chickens. The pattern you are referring to is called Scrappy Sheep. It is available as a kit 17 x 11 on primitive linen for 100.00 OR as a pattern only (you provide your own wool) for $25.00… Let me know which you prefer. I am going up to ottawa on Thursday afternoon and could probably meet you somewhere or mail it to you… Loretta
