Hand Hooked Rug by Karen D. Miller

This is the last of the new pieces that I will have with me at the Navan Christmas craft sale in a couple of weeks.  This small framed piece is 5″ x 7″ and the background is hand-hooked using hand-dyed cotton tape.  The trees are hand-hooked using strips of repurposed 100% Canadian leather.  I have my husband to thank for carefully dismantling an old leather jacket and then cutting it into strips for me.  Look for more leather pieces in the future!

I’m currently working on a bigger rug that I will sneak peek when I have enough of it done!

On Exhibit…..

Three of my pieces are currently on exhibit at the Orleans branch of the Ottawa library (1705 Orleans Blvd.).  They will be there until January 4th, 2011 so if you are in the neighbourhood stop by and see them!  Apologies in advance- these are not the best pictures as I didn’t have my better camera with me.

On display are “Sunset over Grande Entree”, “Hesturinn” (Icelandic Horse) and “Iles-de-la-Madeleine”.
Will be posting the last of my new items tomorrow!
