Where have I been lately? Hooking....(a rug!) Thought I meant something else didn't ya??? LOL
The one above is a rug I hooked for Lisa Dee of Vista Caballo ranch of her quarter horse Miss Hamoki Banks. At her web site you can see the picture of Miss Banks that I used; she is standing in a field of tall grass. This small rug is 9x13 inches hooked on linen backing.
This is the rug I am working on now. It's 17x17 inches, no ones horse in particular, just came out of my head. Not sure of the rest of the colors that will be in the rug, will post as I move along on it. Sometimes these rugs just pick their own colors and I just hook them.
A close up of the head, but click on the photos to see them larger. I try to hook the lines of wool in the direction of the hair, muscles and bone structure of the horse. I have done some horse portrait rugs for people and will have my web site up soon. Will post when it's up so you can go take a peek.
Back to hooking and watching old westerns, YAY, lots of horses to see there! How great is this, to get to work and watch movies too??? Wonderful!
