The Crescent Lane Rug Hookers are an Association of Traditional Hooking Artists Guild (ATHA). We were formed in the late 1990's by Nancy Butts Thompson, a wonderful lady who shared her love for rug hooking to everyone she met. This blog is a format to keep all Crescent Lane Guild members informed about the Guild, it's members, classes, updates, and any information to help in their rug hooking endeavors. May the Lord God bless us all.
I'm working steadily on the "Farmer" rug. I had to re-hook the little mouse to make him smaller and I added highlights to the tree. The highlights makes the tree show up against the dark sky.
I also added highlights on the little boy. I'm not happy with his face. It is so difficult to get the right feel of expression in such a tiny space.
Working on the border and finishing up the wording, then I will hook the Farmer and his Wife. I'm re-thinking the little stars. A suggestion was to make them have points like the bigger ones and maybe in the yellow. I just don't want to clutter up the sky.
