Karen Larsen of Crows Foot Farm gave a talk on the thought process she uses to design rugs. She explained how this rug came about. It was based on drawing by her eight year old granddaughter and aptly named Lucy's Fairy Village. Isn't it just too sweet?
My partner in crime Melissa was hooking this pattern by the Woolley Fox. This is what she accomplished the first day. Her color choices were amazing.
Sweet Liz who also attended the retreat last year brought everyone a piece of antique paisley. Melissa hooked it in the center of her hearts.
Some of you may recall I posted a picture of this rug a month or so ago from a hook in and several readers were asking to see it spread out. Shirley was hoping to finish it before the retreat but had just had a little hooking left to do. Here she is contemplating her wools in April of 2013, having started the rug that January.
Not having anything else to hook, she bought this pattern from Susan Saturday evening and by Sunday morning was already done except for outlining the petals, using the same wool from the room size rug.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I have lots more rugs to share in the next post.
Pug hugs :)
