a finished rug.. or 6

 I don't think i showed you the finished rug
I hooked for my daughter.
(I had help along the way)

i used a couple of the greens that i dyed and 
recycled wool for the background.
sister Jana had gone up to visit 
Bonnie at Willow Wood Market (Cobbler Carols cousin)
and brought me home a couple different teals.
As Angela wanted a teal bird. its not as bright in person.

i also don't think i showed you these other rugs i've finished.
i know i had shown and asked your opinions on the
 beginning stages of this first one.

i made these 2 for my sister and I
i used recycled wool from our dads 
vintage wool coat.

i wanted to try the proddy sunflower 
so incorporated a couple rug ideas.

i picked these treasures up yesterday 
at my neighbors sale.
the 2 bowls for 5.00 / basket 1.00
i just could not leave them there,,
i have quite a few of these vintage picnic baskets
and this is in the worst ware of the ones i have.
i think it will be a perfect porch basket!
and who could resist these Texasware bowls
they are in perfect condition and waiting for a summer salad!

well thats it for today,,
enjoy your august days my blog friends!   jody


  1. Enjoyed your rug show Jody and hard to pick a favorite. Both Grow flowers are lovely and you did a perfect proddy.

  2. Well, I was sure I left a comment. Argh.
    Just wanted to say your hooking is perfection and those star mats hooked with your dad's coat are so special and will be treasured.
    Good score on the basket.
