A Little Bird Told Me
Adapted from the artwork of Lori Brechlin/Notforgotten Farm
Hooked by Deb Nees
Oh my, I love everything about Lori's design! The unusual leaves on the tree, the colonial-looking girl, and the sheep peeking around the flower...sort of like a rug hooking photobomb. Haha! Deb added the border to the rug and I think it's perfect because it ties everything together.
Saundra Porter took this picture but she must have used her flash because you can see the colors a little more clearly in her photo. We were at Cape May a few years back and Deb had entered this rug into the rug show.
Deb did a lovely job on the face because it is tiny and harder to get a lot of detail.
Well done and a wonderful rug, Deb! *applause*
Dana Cook was hooking this design when I taught in Santa Fe a few years ago. I am a huge fan of the turquoise and gold dress, along with the ruby striped sleeves. A little bit of Santa Fe influence, wouldn't you say?
I have also seen this pattern hooked by someone who made the girl look like Frida Kahlo. It was absolutely spectacular and honestly, I was awed by the creativity. But I tried searching for a picture and I couldn't find one. If I ever run across the picture, I will definitely post it in a future blog post.
You can find the pattern here:
Have a great week-end!
