Floral Fantasy No. 2 
by Sylvia Solomon

This rug was my own design inspired by my love of flowers and colours. It is done in no. 5 cut. I did some dyeing, but the majority is recycled wool used as is.

This rug was the depiction of the view from our cottage veranda in late September. I saw a painting of Birches by Tim Packer in Ottawa and was delighted and decided to try to capture the large white birches against the lake and sky. The rug measures 36” x 48” and was hooked on linen with dyed new and recycled wool, cut in no. 6 and no. 8. Most of the recycled wool came from tweed jackets.

This decorative tapestry was adapted from the design of a tin of chocolates I bought during the  Christmas season. The Santa measures 24" x 19" and was hooked  with new wool, on a linen background . To finish the cushion, I whipped the edges.
