Three rugs from this winter’s work left the gallery this weekend. Quite astonishing to have sold three on our opening weekend. This Icicle Rug is a reminder of the winter past. The Joy rug, another little one, is just that. And then this Long Cove rug, one of the larger ones from this winter, and […]
Two of my rugs are part of a group show at the Maine Fiberarts gallery this March and April. Three others have work in the show: Roslyn Logsdon, Mary Ann Schwarcz and Liz Stoyko. It is interesting to see the variety of styles, techniques and subject-matter in the hooking world. I like seeing what captures each […]
Hot off the press. Or rather, off the frame. I just finished this rug based on the Falstaff Brussels sprouts I’ve grown for several years. They aren’t the best producers, and the sprouts tend to be small, but really delicious and nutty. And the leaves are beautiful to boot — worth growing just for the […]
This is the first rug I’ve finished this winter. It was supposed to be the December rug, but I worked on it into January. I call it “heating with wood.” Since I took this photo I finished the edges — a tedious process of whipping binding tape to the edges and then tacking it down. […]
We’re into our third day of an ice storm right now. Or not really a storm, more like a siege, with temperatures hovering around freezing and rain, or sleet, or freezing rain, or drizzle, or freezing drizzle falling. We have ventured out only as we have needed to with the dogs or to attend to […]
I just finished this rug in the nick of time to take it to the Maine Fiber Arts Gallery in Topsham for the show of my rugs due to open on March 8 (Reception on Sunday, April 7). Part of the process of finishing a rug is steaming it flat, which I do on the […]
We have one warm spot in the house and it is the main room, which is the kitchen/dining area near the wood stove. It’s where we all live in the winter, though sometimes it gets a bit crowded on the table. And yes, we do evict the cats when we eat. Really, we do.
I am in the process of finishing, by which I mean whipping and essentially hemming the edges, a tedious but necessary task. I started the first one by just messing around with the borders. Borders are getting more and more interesting to me. Usually I do the borders after I’ve done a central image, and […]
I took my large rug based on a Mary Oliver poem to the Green Mountain Rug Hooking Guild show at the Shelbourne Muesem in Vermont that ran November 9 – 17. This is not a juried show; any guild member can enter up to three rugs. But everyone who comes to the show gets a […]
This has been a see-saw sort of winter. A few very cold, often sunny days; then a spate of warmer weather bringing slushy snow and rain. I love what the low winter sun on these bright cold days does in the house, zinging into normally subdued corners. When we potted up that begonia to bring […]
