NEW PATTERNS AND SHOW AND TELL…

I just received a shipment of wool appliqué patterns from Heart to Hand – Kathi Campbell. With Kathi’s permission, I am offering these as either wool appliqué, rughooking or punch needle (miniature) where possible. I think these will be such fun to do in any medium. I do have a very limited supply so if you are interested contact me asap for details…

FALL 8 x 8 inch squares for appliqué, 4 x 4 for miniature punch needle (10 x 10 inch squares for rughooking)…

Harvest Blessing 23 x 31 applique – for the hooked version I am thinking of doing only the central portion)…

Santa Runner appliqué approximately 42 x 11 (44 x 12 for rughooking)…

Santa and Rudi Stockings 18 inches long for appliqué or rughooking…

In addition, I have a new Karla Gerard which I think would be fabulous done in bright colours like the painting but also in Fraktur colours (golds, reds, greens); with quillies for the circles or fun buttons; as a very primitive piece using lots of textures and old colours; in neutrals – so many fun options…

and now for a bit of show and tell….

Andrea finished her fabulous sheep pattern customized by designer Isabelle Rollin…

Mary sent a picture of Joyful Sunflower (available from me) framed beautifully…

Karen finished her lovely turtle rug for her grand baby…

and although the next piece is not hooked it is glorious!!! painted by Karen…

Linda sent pix of her completed Woodlands rug (pattern by Wendo van Essen) and 2 of her lovely quilts…

and Karen’s lovely landscape…

Tom finished hooking my River Otters pattern…

SHERLOCK AND WATSON…MYSTERY SOLVED

So for everyone who was interested you can now order your patterns!!! have fun and thank you Andrea…

Linda and I have been playing detective today – she is doing much better than I am haha. She saw this rug on Pinterest but there was no attribution or link. She loves this pattern and would like to hook it but we are trying to find the designer/supplier. We do know that this rug was hooked by Sue Raynor and exhibited a few years ago at A Rug Hooking Retrospective@ Bruce County Museum 2014.

If anyone has information on where we can find this pattern we would really appreciate it. It is a wonderful pattern!

POP UP SALE…
