Over the years, I have hooked many “animal” pieces but none of them have been really “realistic”! 🙂
Because I like to create them myself, I don’t have to follow any guide of correct eye colour, etc. all of you who do primitives or folk art style pieces know what I mean!!!!
Some of my early ones are more primitive and I used a #8 cut more often. Later ones are done in narrower cuts, like the #4,5 and 6 cuts that I use most now!!
Some were copied from old rug designs and some were my own drawings. While I was learning, I enjoyed hooking them all…!
Maybe, when I grow up (!!!) I’ll do more realistic hooking…but since I am 75 now, I don’t have a lot of confidence in that…! …lol…
I showed you the “Homeplace” rug earlier with a lot of the owner’s animals in it…!
Here are some fun animal pieces:
Do you like hooking animals…either realistic, primitive or folk art style? I always enjoy your comments…
Thank you to Mary for contacting me! Mary does primitives!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
