Annual 2016 Post 4

The vast number of amazing rugs on display at this year’s annual was truly a feast for the eyes. Here’s the last instalment of those I managed to photograph. DSCN0573DSCN0562DSCN0582DSCN0541I’m sorry this is out of focus. It is hooked entirely from ‘as is’ blankets cut by hand.DSCN0528DSCN0572DSCN0555DSCN0554DSCN0587DSCN0575DSCN0543DSCN0566I can almost feel the hot sun! The use of light is soooo effective.

  1. Thank you so very much for all these photos of the annual!! Loved them,,, I did not get there this year,,,, see u at r.u.g.,,,,,

  2. Elizabeth, Thanks for sharing all these beautiful rugs Living in north Florida, I doubt I will ever be able to see this quality rugs. Were those “Fishing for Soles” a group challenge or the work of one chapter?

  3. Thanks for sharing the wonderful rugs. Living in Oregon, I doubt that I’d ever get to see it in person. Was in love with the “fishing for soles”, a fabulous idea for a challenge.

  4. Wow, I can hardly believe I was at the same Annual as you have photos of pieces here I did not see and I toured the show several times! What an amazing display and just shows the talent and imagination and artistic creativity of Canadian rug hookers. Thank you for sharing.

    • Isn’t that the truth Susan. While looking at the photos other people took, I was continually seeing rugs I’d never noticed too. I think one of the most amazing aspects is the diversity of the work. Rug hooking is certainly flourishing in Ontario.
