Friends by Aillish O'Keeffe

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). I don't know anything about recycled and I don't dye,so I buy wool pieces when they go on sale at our Guild, or on the rare occasion when I meet up with vendors. 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 by Denise Vandenbemden

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.

The design for this peacock cushion was originally a project to show how one could use fancy stitches in rug hooking. The cushion measures 13" x 14".
Materials used: rug warp, string for border, tapestry wool for the body, bought swatches, left over wool from previous projects. Black knitting wool, not highly recommended on a pale background, as it is very "hairy".
