New rug on my hooking frame

I have been reworking one of my designs to re-introduce this year. It is on my frame today undergoing changes.

I am getting some color inspiration from a vintage rug in Sheila Betterton’s RUGS book.

Also from another of my designs called Oval Antique.

I have been hooking and then taking many breaks to ponder the work.

Surrounding me are piles of wool. It is so cozy in my studio! I am being a bit of a hermit as it is rainy here in Oregon. A great excuse to work on a rug.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that you are also creating as the last month of winter continues.

  2. Just the most gorgeous rug. I am inspired enough to try rug hooking myself. I signed up for your site and came across this entry from February. You’re an amazingly creative person. You even dye your own wool! My word! You are something. My husband, Bill, and I now live in Eugene moving from Birmingham, AL. Are there shops here that already have wool in the little strips? And hooks? And … holder frames? I’m pretty determined to give this a try after seeing all your beautiful projects.
