If that title doesn't get your attention nothing will. I wouldn't search for the title on google - no telling what photos may come up - lol!
Yesterday afternoon I went to a big rug hooking show and it just happened to be next to an alpalca festival so I wanted to share some pnotos.
Of course I had to go to the alpalcas first
Such beautiful animals, there expressions are priceless, so calm and sweet.
this is Beckham - he has to be my next animal quilt - no question
and then the rug hooking - I was floored at this exibit. Beautiful works or art made of strips of wool. there were over 200 of these art pieces but of course I ended up taking photos mostly of the dog ones.
look! they even had Abbey and Summer!
this woman had added real rocks and driftwood
love this idea
the background is rug hooking
magic carpet ride - she had this hanging by fishing line and supported by that plastic stand thing - a felted girl sits on the carpet
Sumac, which is brightly colored everywhere right now
and I did love this method as well called proddy rugs, taking strips of wool or any cloth and just prodding or poking it thru a base close together with big holes and letting the ends fray free. they had a rug there and it felt so nice. To the right is a bowl made that way.
my first instinct is to run out and get all the stuff to do rug hooking now but do know my limits time wise although winter is coming and I will have more time for doing this type of thing. It looks like so much fun ;-)
have you ever hooked?
