These cute little faces are lit up each evening and early morning.
|I have always liked my hooked Cone Flower runner and wanted to hook a chair pad. I added at random some tongues on the border to fill the space and used the same grey green as the leaves. Making it more neutral and not to busy.|
|Mr. Gingerbread Man was a quick hooking project. He has a light cinnamon color behind him making his body be the center attraction. The border is a brown green and has nice mottling through it. He is so proud of the red heart he wears. A few greenery sprigs with red berries give him a festive look.|
|I am showing my Saturday only class on this Turkey rug that will be June 21st at the Rug hooking Store in Valley Ne. This picture was taken outside and a little cloudy. The next picture was taken inside with a flash. As you can see, I changed the feet of the turkey, they didn't show up enough against the green background at the bottom. I had changed them 5 times. This is what I ended up with. Although both pictures look different here, they both look pretty true to color. The bottom picture just has more light on it to make the colors stand out. In my house it will be more like the color above. I like that this class is early in the season so the ladies will have enough time to finish it in time for the Turkey to be on the family table! Ha! When I drew this design, I had in mind that all the designs would be chunky and large. More of a country Folk Art piece rather than true to what a real Turkey would look like, cause we all know Turkeys do NOT have pointed tail feathers! Also this pattern is offered in three sizes. I hooked the largest size which is 32 1/2x25 1/2. I used an 8 cut and think the other sizes will be fine using the same. Designer Jan Goos, hooked by Jan Goos. Patterns are available through The Rug Hooking Store.|
