This rug measures 29" x 24", hooked on a rug warp backing. The figures were done from pieces of wool that I already had (most of the yellow background was dyed by Lois Morris for me).

An artist called STRATOS inspires the actual design from a painting I saw. I believe he is Greek but his studio is in France.



Sampler

Sampler made for a 2010 class about alternative hooking given by Lois Morris. Hooked with cuts # 3 and #4 on burlap. The sampler contains the stitches Aztec, Chevron, 4-Loop Chess, Chain, Turkey, Carving and Reverse Hooking, as well as Regular Hooking. I hand dyed all the wool used in this project.
