Special Show&Tell / It's a Tie

Special Show & Tell / And the Winners are...

Grandfather's Fox by Isabelle Rollin 

Grandfather's Fox
by Isabelle Rollin
My first rug was inspired by my Mother who told me that her Father had designed and maybe even hooked a rug with a fox and flowers. Together, my Mom and I spent many precious moments trying to recreate this design.
This has a great deal of 'doing and undoing' as I was learning to hook. Thank you all for your advice and encouragement. Thanks Mommy.
The rug is 26-5/8"x38", wool cut no. 6.
Original design hooked with recycled material from blazers, skirts and shared wool.

Le Draver/The Logger by Jacques lepage
Le Draveur/The Logger 
By Jacques Lepage 
The image of a happy man, working  his hard and dangerous trade, in the rageing wilderness of spring. 
While I was hooking this rug, many stories were shared to me, souvenirs of people who had the chance to know one of these brave and proud men.
What a great recognition.
For the fabrication of this rug I used woolen shirts. Maybe one had belonged to an old logger!

Lumberjack's Snowshoes by Jacques Lepage

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.
