I'd thought that I'd spotlight some delightful rugs that were previously featured in Rug Of The Day and were shared to me by their makers.
Hooked by Judy Glenn
I showed you Judy's partially hooked rug in a previous Rug of The Day post but here it is finished. Ta-Da! I love how the red, white, and blue is carried throughout the rug. And look at Judy's perfect stars on the flag...done with a 9-cut! It's a great technique to use when you have to fit those tiny stars on a flag.
Hooking a dark background for this rug isn't always easy to do but Kitty pulled it off by giving Uncle Sam a little halo to make him stand out. The tabs on the sides are playfully hooked by alternating the red, white, and blue theme. Again, the patriotic colors march around this rug nicely.
Nantucket Broom Ride
Oh my! I LOVE the antique and naive appearance of Randi's rug! Not too many of us can achieve the look that Randi has created....she says she used old t-shirts, bathing suits, wool, and anything she had on hand, much like our rug hooking sisters of yesteryear did.
All three ladies did a brilliant job at hooking their rugs!
Thanks for sharing, my friends!
Just a reminder that you can find the patterns here:
