These were very quick to hook - I was excited at the prospect of having woolly warmth inside my well-worn sheepskin slippers.
The full story is at margaret-cooter.blogspot.co.uk/...further-hooking-adventures. Next - more slippers, entirely hooked - does anyone have a pattern?

Laszlo - The Weavers Lion

...another rug hooked by Deb Burcin - titled Laszlo and entered into an exhibition at The National Museum of the American  Coverlet in Pennsylvania, USA in 2012.

Deb explained  the design of the above rug was created by Barbara Carroll. Deb also told me the exhibition consisted of 150 hooked rugs which hung alongside all the antique 'Coverlets'.

Apparently Laszlo, a Lion design, was always woven into the corner of a coverlet by the weaver. In the other corners the name of the weaver and  owner/s.

Deb was honoured to be part of this amazing exhibition inspired by antique American Coverlets.


This is a Tote in progress - hooked by Deb Burcin, USA and designed by Susan Quicksall from Holly Hill Designs. Deb will send a photo of the finished item in a week or two.

I rather like the abstract manner in which all the creatures are placed. Deb is also going to embellish the Tote even further with embroidery...so watch this space.
