Another sheep rug today...this is Wool Garden!
Design adapted from the artwork of Lori Brechlin/Notforgotten Farm
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 flowers....no 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.
