Cock-A-Doodle Rooster

When you live on a farm, it is hard not to be inspired by the life around you – kittens playing, foals running, cattle grazing – plus the textures of barn board, fences, crops and feathers and fur. For Michelle Miller, a hooking designer living on a farm near Bienfait, Saskatchewan, her world is her design source. This rooster struts across our field of vision just like one that may swagger in Michelle’s barnyard.
One of her first big pieces was a barn pattern that, when it was finished, she framed using old wood that she embellished. She likes to use objects from the farm for her embellishments – seeds, barbed wire, barn board. She admits to preferring primitive decor, such as her distressed cupboards in her house, and she is drawn to primitive styling in her design work.
Relatively new to rug hooking – Michelle took her first class with her mother seven years ago – she soon discovered that she likes to design her own projects from pillows to bags to floor rugs.
