KAREN’S HOOKIN…

Have not posted in a few days so I do have a few pictures to share. Ruby and the girls visited the other day. After oohing and ahhing over their rugs – completed and in progress – Cap’n Hiliner took us for a boat ride. It was a lovely day. Here are some pix of their rugs:

Ruby’s hooked up Winter’s Day – a pattern I carry by Fully Wooly Primitives…HPIM4674

Pearl’s scrappy squares – made up of – yes SCRAPS…HPIM4675

Jane’s Scrappy Rug – love the fact that you can really use up all those small pieces in rugs like these… HPIM4676

Jane’s small mats – the oak leaf was her first ever hooking…HPIM4677

The little poppy will become a pillow on this beautiful green wool…HPIM4678

Jane’s hooked BAA BAA…HPIM4679

Ruby’s version of a Martina Lesar pattern… HPIM4680

which she is making into a stool cover…HPIM4681

and finally – Ruby’s version of Sharon Smith’s Puppy Love

HPIM4682Yesterday was Karen’s hookin. What a beautiful beautiful day – not as hot and humid (although warmer than we were expecting) so a huge turnout of hookers working on so many different rugs it was overwhelming. And yup my camera was overwhelmed – tried to take pix of some of the rugs and the lens got stuck, shutter open, no blinking – must have been the darn batteries and yup it was. But this time I really do have to blame myself for NOT CHARGING THOSE RECHARGEABLES! I did get a few pix of Karen’s rugs in the house before the camera died (so  why did I not have a pocketful of recharged batteries – blame it on my own personal non charged battery!!!!)… But here are a few of Karen’s amazing rugs…

A huge floor rug in really wide cut (probably hand torn). I walked on it barefoot and ohhhhhhh it felt wonderful…HPIM4685

Another hand torn clipped and prodded big wall hanging…HPIM4684

And another… HPIM4683
