Rug Of The Day - Wool Garden

Another sheep rug today...this is Wool Garden!

Hooked by Jeanne Stephens

I will be the first to admit that I am not a gardener nor do I even enjoy doing it.  I think when God was passing out talents, He said "I understand and gift you your enthusiasm, joy, and commitment to animals but plants.....not so much."
I like the plants and flowers that come up year after year, like hostas and peonies, because they do well on their own.  But one thing I do love is to HOOK flowers and that makes me very happy!

I especially love the flowers in Wool Garden.  Maybe because their colors make me happy or maybe because their role in the rug gives you a sense of calmness and beauty.  In Jeanne's rug, they are the pop of color that makes her rug sing.  You want to go sit in that peaceful wool garden for a little while and enjoy the weeding required!

Wouldn't this be the perfect rug for your little hooking nook or craft room?  I can envision it hanging above a shelf of wool or the wall nearest your chair.  Just a calm and peaceful little statement that you are spending happy times in your very own "Wool Garden."

Jeanne says that Cathy Stephan helped her with the color planning at a rug camp in Duluth.  It looks like the sheep were hooked with roving or chunky yarn.  If you are interested in hooking with roving and/or sheep curls, there is a tutorial at the top of my blog...just click on the tab.

Am with you Kris on the not so wild about gardening. But since I'm the only person here and someone must cut the grass it is me. Love the flowers that come up every year but they grow among the weeds which are regretfully neglected. Love those sunflowers!!!!!!
