This weekend's rug-hooking workshop with Annie Sherburne was really inspiring! I had taken along these sedate colours -
but Annie provided choice from a couple of trolley-loads of wonderful yarns and fabric strips (including dyed wool blankets), which encouraged me to break out into using some delicious colours and a variety of textures -
I couldn't wait to cut the loops of my little mat, but on reflection prefer it uncut -
Even the dull ones look colourful, taken one by one -Annie's book, revival of an interest in colour combining, and a desire to break out into wild woolly hooking!
The Brown's tool is also called a rag rugger - see how it works here.
