And There's More ~


Still more rugs . . . 



















I've never heard of dyeing wool from men's ties, but I thought the little mat was fun.





Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

My favorite design is that long runner. BUT, no way in hell I'd hook something that big. I know thy offer a small version but don't like that one as well. Have always wanted to hook a rug or mat with the picture mounts on the corner. Liked the rug with the tie at border until I saw it was poorly finished on the back side. I'd have put a piece of wool or other fabric on the back to give it a nicer finish.

Those rugs were amazing! I loved the long prayer rug! I wonder how long it took the hooker to hook it! I never even noticed the tie rug...I missed a lot of rugs, I believe....I think I was too busy shopping!!

So many nice rugs. I love the realistic-looking ones of the sheep and bighorn and I recognize the smaller one from April DeConnick. She still keeps in touch with me through email. She does magnificent work. I couldn't read the labels next to the rugs. I was wondering if Judy Carter had some rugs in the show. Her rugs are outstanding.
Thanks so much for the rug show. Have a good weekend.
Hugs, Julia

Just amazing...and that sheep one. I had to take a second look and saw the birds. My favorite though is the bunny one. I LOVE bunnies! Janice

Love those little bunnies in the corners of rug 2. Nancy Parcels, the lady with the ties, had that rug with her at Caraway this year. She also taught the class about dyeing with ties. Clever.

I love seeing all of these great rugs. It would be hard to pick a favorite.

Hi Lauren,
So many amazing rugs!! Thanks so much for taking us along via all your wonderful photos!!
One of my friends has used ties to dye paper and the results were so beautiful!! You just never know what someone will come up with next!! Creativity has no limits!!!
Hope you are continuing to heal and get back to normal!!
