NEW SHOW AND TELL…

First – this was our sunrise the other day. What a glorious sky – Gord figures I should hook or punch this sky! Not sure if I could do Mother Nature justice…

and a few rugs and punch needle pieces to share along with some great ideas!…

Linda finished her Winter Skate (one of my Shelly Atkinson patterns that I do as a kit)…

Louise finished hooking my River Otters…

Wendy shared an interesting table that her hubby Vince picked up at Ikea for her – she thinks it was because he was tired of listening to her gripe when she would drop her threader or scissors – this little 39.00 table can be pulled up close, adjusted in height and hold your threads and scissors etc. Vince, another brilliant discovery…

Len shared his hooked piece which he left in the wooden hoop and whipped right over the edge of the hoop – then painted the closure of the frame and the linen that was not covered. What a brilliant idea for using up all those wooden hoops that we all have collected over the years…Thank you Len for sharing…

Karen has almost finished her lovely rug…

Jill finished hooking her Karla Gerard Abstract Village and her Maple Sugaring rugs…

I finished punching another of Isabelle’s little children. This time I wanted it to look more vintage and punched it in colours that were not as high contrast (well maybe the red and green 🙂 ) in a mix of different threads and yarns… It will be adhered to a vintage flat grater and surrounded by – yup – a braided edge…

  4. Loretta, that sky is magnificent. I think you could absolutely hook that. I actually have a piece of dip die that has all those colours in it. It is the first thing I thought about when I saw the photo.

    I love the rugs. I am constantly amazed by the beautiful creations by rug hookers. From patterns design to hooking. It keeps me inspired.

  5. Oh that sky is electric! Such beauty – leaves a person speechless really.
    I’m in love with “Winter Skate” and of course “Isabelle’s Little Child”…. but ALL of the other artful pieces are a feast for the eyes. (the kind of feast that are not adding to the “pounds” right now – LOL)
    Thank you for sharing your wonderful pic’s – always something to aspire to.

    Merry Christmas!

    • Hi there… So I punched on a number 2 setting… This is kind of my go to height. I used a mix of Valdani, Dmc (6 strand) in the coat and scarves, Yarn in the background (fingering that I sell in smaller skeins of 50 yards) and yarn in the sheep and hat (in the hat i punched the brim and pom pom in number 4 and the sheep in 3). I find i mix more and more different threads and yarns in my pieces – love the different textures and looks. Hope that helped,,, Hugs…loretta. and Merry Christmas…

  7. As always the rugs are wonderful eye candy, but what I really need to know is where to get that little table! It looks like the perfect height and size and the price is right. Please share where I might find it. Thanks and Merry Christmas.
