Rugs-4-Dimensions-2015

The rest of the week…  Hubby was off yesterday and consequently we ran a lot of errands.  Plus there was the gym. 🙂

They are ready!  Today I will be dropping my Dimensions 2015 entries off for a trip to Saskatoon for jurying.  We’ll find out this coming weekend what the jurors think of them.

Other than that…more hooking today. 🙂

Later…

Star Rug - 18 x 29.5

Star Rug – 18″ x 29.5″ – $700CAD

Thought I’d add a note.  It’s a beautiful day out!  I walked my hooked rugs over to the pick up place for the Dimensions 2015 show.  And picked up Star Rug also.  It is back from traveling the country in Dimensions 2013! 🙂

Star Rug was hooked in 2012 while I was doing the craft show and sale circuit.  I used it to pass time at the sales and to demonstrate rug hooking to young and old alike.  I had people try rug hooking on it, but had to pull it all out to rehook myself I’m afraid!  Still I think the youngest person who tried hooking was five years old.  She actually did pretty good for being so short!  She sat in my lap and I held the frame with my feet. 🙂

Star Rug is wool and silk fibre hooked on primitive linen backing, as is all my rug hooking.  Care is easy for wall hangings.  As with all fibre art it is best not to hang it in direct sunlight.  If it is dusty, dust it.  If it needs washing, use cold water and do not soak or rub it.  Run it through the shower in the bathtub and lay it flat to dry.  To re-block it, press it and stretch it to shape.  Press again and lay flat to dry overnight.

If you are interested in purchasing Star Rug, it is now up on the For Sale page of this blog, as well as in my Etsy shop.  It is finished differently than my other wall hangings.  I have embroidered pertinent information in cotton thread on cotton twill tape, which I’ve used to finish the back.  It also has a museum quality mounting system still attached.
