~ Drawing Inspiration ~


So I'm already thinking of my next rug to design & hook.
can you tell what my inspiration is?

here's a hint...
the Crow Knows!

Here are a few rugs that have taken up residence in my pea-brain lately...
 ((( all photos below have been 'borrowed' from Pinterest and I may not have all information )))


Magdelina Briener

not sure who' this is but it's cute.

again, not sure of designer/maker but love it.

love their eyes....maker/designer unknown to me.


wool applique, but the concept is beautiful.

this one is wonderful ~ love their blue feet!

Rainy day today... loverly to stay home and hook.
on to the FINISH of hooking When Pigs Fly 
& start on some-kind of sketching for a crow rug.

Joan & I are also challenging each other to hook a Jarrahdale Pumpkin 
using hand torn strips with beautiful wools purchased from Rebecca Erb
...we saw one being hooked at the Sauder show by sweet Sondra Ives
 {designed by the talented Alice LaMar Fraizer}and have been smitten with it ever since! ~ 
I will draw up my own wonky version of a large pumpkin for us and we will start on our pompions 
{French for pumpkins lol} after our show here on the 16th, so stay tuned for our escapades!

Keeping the entire USA in our thoughts and prayers
....for no more rain, no more fire.
and no more hate.

Blessings from the Farm

WOW! I feel so honored you picked a couple of my hooked pieces to show on your blog. The first one I designed using Magdalena as my muse with the berry in the beak. The second crow was a pattern by Betsy Reed which I made into a pillow.

Must admit that I do LOVE crows.

I think the two crows with flowers/urn is a Marion Ham...if I remember correctly that is what Kathy Morton told me...it's a great design...I have crows,on the brain too...
