was a fun day this past Saturday. Unfortunately, a couple of our vendors could not be there but the rooms were hopping and we were all busy busy busy in the morning and in the afternoon got a little bit of a breather that allowed us to shop!

Nancy sent me the following story about a piece she just finished hooking:

“Here is the finished bench, complete with legs. A Rughooking pattern by Carol Shewan created, with permission, from a painting by AJ Van Dries (and available from Carol). The painting was called Songs of New Beginnings. I did the bench for my daughter-in-law. The bench had belonged to her late mother & the red wool I used was from her mom’s skirt, so a piece with memories.”

ImageFor those of you who speak French there is a lovely article on the history of rughooking in Quebec which mentions not only famous rughookers from the past but ALSO some of todays well known Quebec hookers! Article by Fabienne Couturier 3/10/2015 La Presse ARTISANAT LES ACCROS DU CROCHET You can find it here…

Tomorrow morning I will again be at Stitch by Stitch with wool and kits and cutters. Hope to see you there…

  4. Beautiful piece….

  5. A beautiful bench, Nancy – and what a lovely connection for your daughter in law. I’m fairly new to rug hooking: did you skip less holes in order that the backing didn’t show when curved over the bench form? And how did you do the corners? I’d love to create something like this. You are inspiring!
