Rug Hooking Addition



I made this hooked piece last year and decided I should list it in my Etsy shop. The Gray Flowers (already in the shop) seems to be generating more views/interest than my stitching so I thought perhaps it would make sense to add this one as well. It is a little smaller than the gray piece however it can either be hung on the wall or used on a table top. This piece is hooked on burlap (burlap being the original primitive foundation for hooking many years ago) but the gray piece is hooked on linen. Both contain re-purposed and dyed wools, however this piece was hooked entirely with scraps! It is another of my original designs.

I'm working in the local shop again tomorrow. I'm looking forward to a little diversion. I hope you all have a great weekend.
Cheers!
