Little Shoes

By Claire Fradette
Amy Oxford pattern, punched hooked. This was started after a trip to Amy Oxford’s studio where Candace and I took an introductory class. I was lucky and found this little footstool at a flea market in the Lancaster, Ontario area. I thought, ” I’m going to put my feet up on it so why not cover it with shoes!”

My Footstool

By Lois Morris
There was an old footstool in a shed out back and I decided we could use it in the family room.  I cleaned it up, re-stained it and hooked a cover for the top. The background is hooked in burgundy wool, the pattern is outlined with blue jeans and filled with the fabric from a pair of cords.  We use it quite frequently. Little children love to sit on it at the coffee table.

Lumberjack's Snowshoes

By Jacques Lepage
Size: 56”X 30”
This rug was inspired by our snowshoes on a cold winter day. I used plaids in the background to give an effect of lumberjack's woolen coats that would be hanging in their shack.
