It’s been a very busy week (March Break), but I did manage to finish my rug hooking, which I am calling “Shiny Things”. I’m going to sew it into a tote bag – a future post.
Shiny Things seemed like an appropriate name since the crow has found something interesting and shiny, and the tote bag will be for shopping. The tote bag idea came from one of the women at the Burlington Hooking Crafts Guild (thanks Patty!) Once I saw her fabulous bag, I knew I had to make one too.
This is my own design, and the first in a series of crow themed rug hookings. The simple colour scheme pleases me, and the variation in reds in the background give it some interest and texture. It’s wool on linen, about 14″ by 19″.
