I'm going to change things up today and show you a rug that is not my design nor one that I sell, but it is too fabulous not to share!
This was hooked by Kathy Gish. Her husband had taken a photograph in Nova Scotia and drew the image up on linen for Kathy to hook, and she wanted to give it to him as a gift. She was a little worried about how to proceed so she signed up for a class with me so I could give her some pointers. We also referred to Jane Halliwell Green's book., Pictorial Hooked Rugs. The picture originally showed an empty boat but Kathy added George fishing.
I am so proud of what Kathy has done with this rug! It is just fabulous and I know her husband really loves it too.
It was a little out of the box for both of us (me being a primitive teacher, Kathy being more of a primitive hooker) but it's proof that once you put your heart and soul into something, you can make it happen.
