A note from Jennifer: “Hello, I just wanted to say Thank You. I really enjoyed my rug hooking. You gave me the confidence to do the project. I loved the package. The box, to the simple direction, and the labeled bags. I’m hoping to do another rug this winter. Thank you again Karen.”
Another hooking challenge for the sisters of Lucy Walsh. A creative ‘challenge’ each year for them – they pick a title – this one is “I’m Just Saying” and then hook all year and then reveal at one time – what fun!
A note for Karen from Lucy: “You saw COME! SIT! STAY! while under construction. Fred’s is on the corner of Amsterdam & 83rd, NYC. It’s named after the owners dog and that’s him on the left side. My son and daughter-in-law are entering the neighborhood restaurant that is dog friendly and has hundreds of pictures on the walls of patron’s dogs. That wonderful mottled grey I got from you is the windows, sky and border. I think some of the brick color is from you too. Probably other pieces as well.”

This commissioned rug started out as a simple pencil drawing on an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of white paper that was drawn for her grandmother when Corinne was seven years old. Think of the possibilities when you are thinking about your next hooking project. A simple drawing, a photograph or just the scene looking out your front porch can become beautiful rugs – heirlooms forever.
