Wool

I started selling my rug designs a couple of years ago. It is always so satisfying when someone makes a purchase -- and it is really fun to see your design hooked by someone else. Barb has a friend -- well, I guess she's my friend now, too! -- named Kathy Blake Parker who hooks like a speed demon. She recently agreed to help me by hooking up some of my new patterns so I can use them as displays at shows. I give her the pattern, she hooks it anyway she wants, and then I get to borrow it back. It is really nice for me, because I can't possibly hook them all up myself.

So here is our first collaboration. I think she did an absolutely fabulous job on it. I love the dark sheep and the contrast of the dark background and the light foreground. And the word "wool" really sparkles.



And here is my version.



Kathy's rug makes a much more dramatic impact!

Now I'm off to pull weeds! Enjoy the day.

Sarah, both rugs are wonderful! So nice that you have Kathy to hook your designs though. I'm a very s-l-o-w hooker,lol. I have a rug that I started about a 1 1/2 yrs. ago for my in-laws 50th wedding anniv!...and it's still not done! Maybe I'll have it finished for their 60th!!

Thanks, girls. Suzanne -- I have a rug that I started 16 years ago! Don't know if I'll ever finish that one.

I love your rug, It's beautiful, and the colors are fabulous! I admire those that can "hook" such beauiful rugs. :)

I may be a speed demon hooking...but not a speed demon with housework. Oh well...one must make some important choices :-) Keep up the good work Barb and Sarah...I love BOTH of your work! Kathy
