Show & Tell / January- March 2016

Snowboard
Denise Morissette

My rug represents a skier practicing snowboarding. It was made for my grandson who enjoys this sport. For the design I was inspired by a picture seen on the internet. I used both new wool I dyed and some recycled woolens, cut in #6 for most of the hooking, with #3 for the details.

Winter Scene
Hooked by Kay Cousineau


This pictorial was inspired by a Christmas Card I had received, which represented an oil painting of a colourful winter scene by Clarence Gagnon. For this project I used new and recycled wool and met the challenge of finding the exact colour I was looking for by dying and overdying until I got it right. Lois Morris helped me to achieve this. Very fine cuts of #2 and #3 were used throughout.

Polar Boys
By Lorayne Charenko


These two eskimo pieces are not rugs but framed hooked pictures. The first, bellow, one of a set of Polar Boys, represents two eskimos ice fishing. This, my first hooked piece, is the result of a carving course I took with Lois Morris. The twin of this set, a black eskimo, I carved entirely on my own. To achieve a silhouette look, I carved it low and brushed, and brushed again, until I got the aspect I was seeking. From those two pieces I was "hooked" and went on to do other carved pieces.
