Nearly Finished, Hungarian Flower Mat

I decided to rework the flowers with a bluer pink, mauve. Now I just need to bind it. I was thinking about making it into a pillow with a shaggy trim made from strips of wool. (I was inspired by an old piece of Hungarian pottery.)

Update on Hungarian Pottery Rug

I've started working on the border using Cinnamon and some strips of After Midnight for highlights. After I'm done with this part of the hooking I may tweak the colors of the flowers.

Another Rug Hooking Project in the Works

Started a new hooking project yesterday. The design is based on a Hungarian piece of vintage pottery. The dark color is a deep blue called After Midnight.  The other piece is a new Variegated wool, which is multi-colored in greens and gold. Love it! It is perfect for leaves. It's still dark here in the Pacific Northwest so the picture looks darker than it really is. I will post more pictures once I progress more.

Rug Hooking Projects

Over the last couple months I've been busy with rug hooking. It had been some time since I have and I have been enjoying every minute!

Here are my completed projects:

In Mr Turkey I used yard, ribbon and wool strips.

 

 

Above, TULIPS, done in the tradition way; all wool. For both pieces I used a #8 cut.

Both are available as patterns in our shop.
