I am an artist who designs wool art in the form of hooking with wool strips. I design all my own patterns, teach in my studio and have a large inventory of wool and other supplies for sale.
Visits to the studio can be made by appointment and schedule a class that is provided by DeEtta
My patterns are inspired by my surrounding but mostly memories that are happy and meaningful so it is nice to share them with others in my art form!

One thought on “Magalena Style Rug”
Reblogged this on fiddleheadfinery and commented:
Creature Comforts coming along but not finished!
Spring is here with all the bulbs up and ready to bloom for Mothers Day! Rainy for another week in Northern Michigan so the hook will be pulling those strips of wool to finish “Creature Comforts”!
What a fun rug to design and hook. All of the little critters I love along with ferns and flowers that are native to my area in the north.
Most of the strips were hand cut in this rug and hooked on Warp Cloth. I love working on this foundation for large strips, especially a size 8 and above. Many of the strips are an inch and gathered from a large box of leftovers from other projects.
This an be a challenge hooking a folk art style rug when you have been trained to make everything “just so”. It is very liberating! Use what is on hand, hand cut your strips and don’t think too much about what colors go where. If you have never done a folk art rug, give yourself a little challenge and just enjoy the hook in hand with what you have!
