And One More Makes Three - Hooked Rug Collection

This is my treasured collection of hooked rug ART by Françoise Vézina-Gagnon. I am SO excited to have acquired the 3rd piece of textile art by one of my favorite rug hooking artists. I have been lusting after the larger piece entitled " Village de Saint-François, Ile d'Oréans" ever since I first saw it. Now, everyday when I come home and see the "village" I feel the excitement of its' beauty. You can easily see why Françoise's work takes my breath away. Click on the photo for a better look. The smaller piece to the left is entitled "Chapelle de Procession Ste. Famille". The piece above the village is entitled "Vieille maison l' ile d'orleans vers 1930".

Here are three more recent pieces of hooked rug ART by Françoise, exhibited at the recent 2010 Exhibition of the St. Henri Rug Hookers.

What to Do With All Those Cut Strips of Wool......

What to do with all those cut strips of wool...Here is a wonderful idea from my Mom. She did a sort of variation of an inch mat. The count is 6 loops for the outside square, 4 loops for the middle line, and then 2 loops for the inside little square. Then the black or dark grid line surrounds it all. Make it as big or small as you wish. Here is a finished mat. Enjoy!

Here is another version without the grid lines.

These little scrap mats were designed and hooked by Lois Latham.
