Look at these cute fellows. They’re by artist Ann Willey and they are rug hooked.
It just goes to show, you can do so much with this craft.
I think many of us hold a dear place in our hearts for craft-work that was developed from thrift. Rug hooking like quilting, seems to have been invented to make the most out of little resources. The results of necessity to save and scrounge is anything but utilitarian. The results are full of colour and joy, invested with visual and tactile memory. The results are rugs and bedspreads and so much more.
