Hooking Begins...

I've just couldn't resist this pattern for the new cottage. It's from the Primitive Quilts & Projects Winter 2012, it's called Stoneware Horse. Those of you that know my past know I have a love for Mustangs!
These days I'll settle into other interests of mine, this week it's rug hooking.

 Here's the pattern on the red dot. It is a large rug - finished size of 30" x 50".
The pattern of The Stoneware Horse is now transferred onto a linen burlap fabric. The horse is done in a blue stoneware look, blues are what the kitchen & master bedroom are done in at the cottage. So the horse will be grey/white with numerous shades of blue polka dots, a black background, & the pennies will be done in left over wool's from my last two projects.
I'm going to use yarns, Briggs & Little & 1/4" strips of wool, & also thinking of using roving for the tail & mane. However being a woman my mind will probably change several times before this rug is complete!
Let the hooking begin!

  1. Hi Cynthia, I can't wait to see your new rug. It's going to be beautiful.

    I've done a little bit of hooking on my Childhood Memories rug but I'm very slow at it as I only hook just before going to bed and I have to design as I go, never really knowing what I'm going to draw next to anchor my next vignette. My upper back gets sore so i can't hook very long without having to take a break.

    It looks like you started the new year well.
    Stay warm and safe.
    Bigs hugs,
