I'm Hooked!



Sheepmom and her rug hooking cousin partner up to create beautiful rug hooking material... They asked if I would be interested in designing some patterns for them. Sounded like fun. It was!



I started out with six basic designs. You'll recognize Handy and Aria, The Adventure Chickens, Miss Ewenice babysitting Keebler and Graham, Betsy, a few honey bees and "the neighbor kid" at the bird feeder.

Where's Hank? Iris? Comby? Ewen McTeagle? Maybe something with spinning or knitting? I need to do some actual test hooking to make sure I'm not way off target, but if all goes well, I'm really looking forward to designing more. You might say I'm hooked!

Originally I thought I was just drawing plain black and white patterns. When I did a test colorization though I thought they might make cute note cards too and also an interesting way to present the patterns. Saint Tim ran a couple copies for me and I really like them. I'll have a few sets packaged up for sale at the fall Kentucky Wool Festival next weekend.

Next weekend?!?

What a GREAT idea! They'll make beautiful rug hooking (or wall hanging) kits and are adorable note cards!

Sara,
Your designs and cards are fabulous! Quite the artist!

The green tomatoes were in the salad photo topped with the chile/mayo sauce. Better than the regular tomatoes...

Another beautiful creative triumph for you! I love the "Betsy" design. But, no, no Nooo! I CAN'T get involved in another
fibercraft, at least not without losing my happy home.
Let's see.... rug hooking vs....

Just kidding, Jim.
