Several Projects in the Works

This rug was completed about 4 years ago. Folk art leaves and primitive colors stand out. I like the acorns in the corners, too. Dimensions are 11" x 22". It is hooked in #8 cut, hand dyed and as found wools. The heart pillow is hooked in #8 cut hand dyed wool and then needle felted with wool roving. It measures 5 1/2" x 4", and is stuffed with fiberfill. The back is hand dyed wool. I love how it turned out! Tonight is the second hook-in of the month, and I hope to go. My pear pillow is coming along and should be finished in the next couple of days. I will post it when I get it all completed. I need to come up with another project and I have a large unusually shaped rug in mind. I'll tell you more about it later. Hope you all have a great day. It is rainy and VERY windy here. My husband is in a one week lay-off from work this week (which is happening about once a month), so he is coming up with all kinds of projects "we" can work on. I have a feeling a spotlessly clean garage is in our future! Woohooo...I'd be more enthusiastic if it were a one-"man" job!!


  1. oh wow i really love the heart pillow!

  2. Linda, I can't wait to see the pear pillow when you are done. I've had a "thing" for pears lately! I've been working on 84 pennies for a penny rug - each one with 3 layers. I love to blanket stitch, but I'll be glad when this is done. ~Ann
