Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Love those Santas! What fun!
I really love creating Santas and other folk figures too! It is a joyful pastime…and the rug hooking is a peaceful pastime. You can never be grumpy making Santas…some have such funny expressions you can’t help but laugh. LOL
It is such a joy to work with wool! I also enjoy dying some of my own wool or overdying to get special effects. But all of my work is whimsical and seems to have earth colours and simple themes. This was displayed at one of the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild’s shows at the Shelburne museum. The theme was “Strong Women” and this piece was titled…Strength through Women’s Friendships.
Welcome to Old Crow Farm in Vermont!
This Blog celebrates the wonderful art and craft of rug hooking! I have been creating original rugs since 2005 and am having a wonderful time.
Although I began with simple designs, my work quickly evolved into pictorials with more detail and meaning. I get my inspiration from old frakturs, samplers, ethnic designs from around the world, antique painted furniture and the natural world. We live in the peaceful and beautiful countryside of Vermont and the tranquility of rural life comes through in my designs.
