After the passing our our dear Hilda at age 97 last year, her daughter gave her wool to the Sunshine rug hookers.
We sold most of it and donated the proceeds to charity, but there were still many lovely pieces left. Mary Lou Justason and Linda Wilson came up with a wonderful idea and put it into action. They divided the wool into about 40 groupings and gave one package to each of the the Sunshine members. We are now each creating a small hooked piece with this wool to have as a personal memento of our friend. We are planning to show them at R.U.G. and then invite Heather (Hilda’s daughter) to see them all at a meeting in May.
The package I chose was primarily navy, pinks and purples, and I decided to hook an English seaside sunset.
Then, since Hilda’s wool was mainly solid colours, I used the transition dyeing method (doesn’t use any dye), to create variation and highlights.
…..aren’t those little quillies delightful?
I’ll share what everyone else makes in a later post.
Gail is hooking an abstract bench seat cover.
Marion was off visiting when I snapped this photo, so I have no explanation for her work.
Isabel is just getting this rose underway.
There’s more to show, and I’ll include the rest in a second post.
Thanks for stopping by.
