Framed Hooked Flowers

The inspiration for this little piece came from some old quilting fabric. The fabric had beautiful cream and rose colored flowers on a blue background that caught my eye. (Of course I changed the rose to gold).

I cut strips of several shades of one color and hooked them as they came. The background was hooked using 2 shades of the blue.
Then I found a fun chippy white frame to finish it off.
This quick and easy project is featured in the June issue of Create & Decorate.

Kits are available at The Wool Basket

How pretty. Years ago I hooked a rug but not for a long, long time. Maybe it might be fun to try a little project again. This is so nice! Thank you for stopping by and visiting me.
