Hooked RugThursday, August 13, 2009
Barb and I love hooked rugs. We have 4 rug-hooking booklets and have also published one by Marilyn Schmidt and Minerva Cabanas. When you love color and fiber you can't help but be drawn to the colors of overdyed wool hooked into a canvas.
The above rug was adapted from our quilt design Midnight Silhouette. You can purchase the canvas and wool for this rug at American Whatever! Sandy is the shop owner and hooked this one for Barb.

Or just adapt your own canvas from the Midnight Silhouette quilt pattern.
We try to add a hooked rug to most of our quilt books. Many of our quilt patterns could be adapted for a hooked rug.
Sheri from Calico Moon sent a response to the last blog posting. She asked me to take a look at her rug. Click on her shop name to see her rug adapted from the same pattern. What fun!

Tis Hallowe'en is almost done. The printer will deliver it to the warehouse on Monday. So, you know what I will be doing on Monday. I will be transformed into a shipping clerk. I'm great with cardboard boxes, plastic shrink wrap and strapping tape. I've been Blackbird's shipping clerk for 10 years now. Lately I've had more help and don't ship books out as often. Donna really works for my husband at Dash Computers, but lately she has been helping more by shipping out books for me when she has a bit of extra time. Her help really enables me to get more done in the studio. I will have to take my camera and let you see where we store all the books and patterns. And of course a picture of Donna would be great too. Although, it would be hard to beat the picture APQ took of her when we helped them with a photoshoot.
I couldn't resist adding a picture of the Halloween stockings. All served up ....just for you!
Until later dear friends.
