Little Allerton – Day 18 Hooked rugs, vermont art, folk art, fiber art, creative life
I was away from home yesterday, so only had a small amount of time to hook!!!! “Life” enters in sometimes!! LOL
For today, I finished the second small “padula” flower, filled in some more of the background and put the leaf veins into the two final center leaves. I hope to have more time today to get the rug center finished (those 2 leaves!!) and to hook a few more scrolls. I am looking forward to getting back to the flowers!!! 😉 They are fun!!!
As I work on this, I realize what a lovely pattern it is!
I always hesitate to choose some of the older patterns for these Blog rugs as I am not a “traditional” rug hooker. 🙂 But I think there is room in the rug hooking world for those of us who take the older patterns and make them our own as we interpret them in ways that might be different from the way they were hooked in times past. Because of my own methods and choices, I continue to work in a “folk art” style…even when the pattern might be extremely primitive or usually done in fine cut..!!! 🙂
When I stretch myself in a challenge or try a new direction, I add what I learn to my own comfort zone and continue to grow. For me, that is what makes rug hooking so much fun!!!! Happy Hooking, Everyone! Sunnie 😉
