Blooming Beauties Rug
This stunning rug was inspired by Lorna’s backyard gardens. Lorna was also very inspired by rug hooker Deanne Fitzpatrick and her method of hooking rugs. Lorna faithfully watches her live show every Thursday afternoon. Deanne’s painterly style of hooking is very impressive to Lorna. She checked her stash of yarn about two months before she started hooking the rug and visited her local thrift stores to purchase yarns to complement her stash. This experience added greatly to the fun we often experience when contemplating making a new rug. Ultimately, this rug was entirely hooked using yarn from thrift stores. Lorna is known for her love of bright colours which shows in most of her rugs.
