It always amazes me how a number of people can hook the same pattern so very differently. Three Blooms is a pattern I carry and I am currently drawing it up and dyeing jewel toned wools for a friend and it reminded me of the different versions people have done and I thought I would share them:

Karla’s original painting:

Chris’ bright vibrant version:


Joan’s very soft version:

Sherri’s more toned down jewel colours version:

and Karen’s fall colours version:

I am sure there are even more out there that I have not seen but these are all so beautiful and all so unique…

and may these other show and tell pieces inspire you – I know I am finally!!! finishing Purple Rain – just starting the show binding today Yeahhhhh… Then on to finishing Porkypine! … soooo

Marie finished her look kit with a wonderful checkered border:

and 2 more rugs by Joan – Karla Gerard pattern…

and this lovely rug based on a card by artist Tish Walsh with permission…


and Leslie finished her beaver rug (her own design) and yellow flowers based on a collage by artist Christina Swerdlow:
