I am married to my wonderful husband Rob and we have two fur kids named Molly and Olivia. I love all things primitive. I have a need for making primitive stuff, shopping for junktiques and hooking rugs.
If you know Anita, she loves to use paisley in her rugs, so I did use the pink paisley in a couple of my flowers.I also used a pink spot off-the-bolt wool in the flowers too that I don't have any more of.
I used another stripe for the base of the wings, but I don't have any of it left to could not photograph it.
The same wool I used in the bird that I am out of, was also used in this odd shaped thing.
The blue ribbon across the top is also hooked from
This post is over due! I spent a week on the Outer Banks of North Carolina taking a workshop with Anita White. You can go to her blog and read more about it. She took more pictures than I did. OBX Workshop
The above rug is the one that I hooked while I was there. It is called 1875 Floral Basket from Woolley Fox. Anita and I have been talking for years about doing a rug with all striped off-the-bolt wool. So, over the years we have been collecting them and I decided now was the time to hook them into a rug. Anita brought with her some wool that she was calling "spots" and they were off the bolt, I loved them and wanted to include them as well. So it is hooked with stripes and spots! It has been fun!!
Below are the rugs that everyone brought for our mini rug show that we had one day while we were there.
I have decided to make some of my patterns available to you.
I have some of them in my Etsy Store which you can see in the left side bar.
If there is one that is on my blog that is not listed, just send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will let you know if it is available. If you want to purchase one, but don't want to go through Etsy,
just let me know that too.
I will continue to get some listed so check it often.
