"A Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs"
For the last 15 years "Rug Hooking Magazine"has published the finest 30 rugs in a book called "A Celebration of Hand-Hooked Rugs". Every year I say "this is the year I will enter something in this contest".Well, looks like it may happen this year. I think I have everything I need ready to put my entry in the mail. Entry's must be postmarked by Nov. 30.I call this rug"Here Comes the Sun". The face has been needle felted with wool roving and the rest of it is hooked.My daughter Amber took these pictures for me.
This is a closeup of some of the hooking.
Here is one eye,everyone that sees this rug up close are surprised by the eyes.
This is a neat view of the face.The rug is 21 1/2" by 18". It will make a great wall hanging.
So now you have seen my entry for the contest.I will seen it off with a kiss tomorrow.Then we will see what the rug hooking world thinks of it.It is so far off anything I have ever seen in the book, but we will see.
To all you hookers at there,"Happy Hooking" and to everyone else "Live Deeply".
