More Fine Finishes

Linda Long of Texas sent me pictures of two rugs she hooked during our time together at Star of Texas Rug Camp in Tyler, June 2013.

This pattern is an antique rug adaption.  Linda brought lots of color to the pattern and her bears are toasting cans of Coke vs. bear (oops, beer) steins.  Isn't all the use of color fun in this rug?  It is very joyful.

Linda is about the fastest hooker I've ever met and she had the bear rug finished by the 3rd day of class. She went on to finishing up this rug, a variation of my Gazing at the Milkey Bones pattern where I customized the pattern to include her two dogs.  Are these doggies sweet or what?

Gazing at the Milkey Bones, customized dog pattern hooked by Linda Long, Texas and pattern from Briarwood Folk Art.

This rug gave us a real challenge:  how to hook a night time sky with a black dog in the rug.  I dyed a painted sky of sorts for Linda to give it an evening look but light enough that the black dog shows up.  This is such a sweet rug.  Too bad they aren't real bones as these cuties look pretty hungry and appreciative of the bones filling the night sky.

Thank you Linda for sharing and the pleasure of working with you in class.  I hope to see you again soon.
