The hooking in this piece is definitely note worthy. The curl ups on the petals were done to perfection. Margaret really has an artist eye in that she understands the way light and shadows work to achieve a high degree of realism. This drawing was simple and unassuming in it's line state to which Margaret added the colour in a highly effective way. You would walk around this rug on the floor as not to crush the petals! She has another one of my patterns and I can't wait to see how she will breathe life into it. All I can say is, "Margaret Tupper...you can hook my patterns anytime!"
Margaret 's message to me:
I hook with the Nicholsville Rug Rats, You made mentioned on your website that you would like to see completed pieces of your designs. Here is a picture of your Poppy Spray pattern completed, I hooked the poppies with Cushing dyed wools; a combination off Cherry, Garnet, and Scarlet. The background was one of your formulas, Aubergine from the SkyBluePink With A Green Smell dye book.....a perfect background shade. I used a number4 cut. A great piece to work on. I enjoyed it very much. Hope I did it justice. I also have your Tina's Roses pattern but have not started as yet. Hope to see you soon.
Your fellow rug hooker,
