Wendy Miller from the Red Saltbox was having a class today on her straight line hooking technique. Oh how I wish I had been able to participate in the class! She had several examples she had hooked ~ all designs from antique coverlets. Her hooking is so precise ~ every loop is exactly the same height as the next.
Here's another of Wendy's rugs. "Haints" are evil spirits. She said it's a southern thing.
Some random rugs from the show . . .
This was a very large rug . . . hooked with a very fine cut. Magnifique :)
Isn't this a great pictorial?
This one too!
What a fun rug!
This rug was incredible ~ more like a painting than a rug. It was hooked with a fine cut and the detail is breathtaking. I have never been a fine cut hooker and never will be, but oh, how I admire what they do!
Splashing water! How would you figure that out?
Thank you so much for dropping by. I have many more rugs to share in another post (or two?).
Pug hugs :)
