A Tree for Thee (17 x 19) by Diane Lestina
Hooked by our daughter Diane Lestina, College Station, Texas. Our Diane has an "angel wall" and this will be perfect there. Note that the wing is not white. A real charmer of a rug and so is Diane.
American Cat (28 x 36) by Dee Casper
Dee Casper, Delmont, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug for her granddaughter. I absolutely love the outline of the tree also the one odd star.
American Cat (28 x 36) by Deste Arthurton
Deste Arthurton of Roswell, Georgia, hooked this rug. Love the whitish stars and moon. Sort of "spooky"!!!!! The play of gold is fun and makes the cat sort of dance. Note that the top left corner is a reverse of the other three. Very fun color play in the border.
American Cat (28 x 36) by Kim Vezzani
Hooked by Kim Vezzani, Greenock, Pennsylvania. American Cat is hooked with a night sky and blue moon. Sort of fun with an orange cat. A wonderful "Americana" rug with lots of fun to it.
American Fish (23 x 37) by Janice Johnson
Hooked by Janice Johnson of Missouri. She is a student of Emma Lou Lais. I think they did a great job with this pattern. Note that the same colors were used in the words and in the top border. This keeps the color balance even. Also note that the wool used in the flag for the "blue with stars" is a blue and white check. Gives a great impression of blue with stars, and not so much work. A nifty tip.
American Fish (23 x 37) by Kate Scurlock
Hooked by Kate Scurlock, Cookeville, Tennessee. One of the most wonderful "WOOL SISTERS." Of course they are all wonderful! Kate said "no red, white and blue, but plenty of fun." So this is truly a very fun rug.
American Fish (23 x 37) by Janet Saville Miller
Fun colors in this rug hooked by Janet Saville Miller, of Montgomery, Texas. This definitely does not have to be hooked in red, white and blue. Note the way she outlined her trees so she did not lose them in the background.
American Fish (23 x 37) by Sharron Nelson
Hooked by Sharron Nelson of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She started on this during a Woolley Fox Mini Workshop, and what a neat rug this is!
American Fish (23 x 37) by Alice Fraizer
Alice Fraizer of Lexington, Ohio, hooked this rug. There is so much joy in Alice's rug, starting with the fish. Alice went right on to her trees and as she ran out of her background wool she "just added some odd wools in" sort of like the old rugs. Alice is very joyous too!!!!! Very fun!!!!!!
American Fish (23 x 37) by Beverly Cole
Hooked by Beverly Cole of Centerville, Ohio. This rug is an absolute joy. Very Carol Endres and very Bev Cole. Bev's top border is truly a July 4th celebration. Hooray!
American Fish (23 x 37) by Nancy Gorman
Nancy Gorman of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, hooked this American Fish. A green fish! Hooray! I also love the way Nancy hooked her top border - FUN!
American Fish (23 x 37) by Joy Cottrilt
Joy Cottrilt of Monroeville, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug. It is nice to see the different treatments of the same pattern. I love the "blue" in the fish far right, but also love the "striped" fish in Joy's rug. Her background is a little darker and then the border a little lighter. A great example of "making this YOUR rug."
American Fish (23 x 37) by Marsha Moyer-Payne
Hooked by Marsha Moyer-Payne of Medford, New Jersey. I love this background – the fish seems to be calmly swimming along and enjoying the trees. Marsha kept her bottom border quiet and so the top border is very playful without overpowering the rug.
American Sampler (29 x 53) by Diane Lestina
Our daughter Diane Lestina, College Station, Texas, hooked this rug. She talked about the rug being so large and then I explained to her it is just eight small rugs! Diane had a good time with this rug and I love her America, being the "spark" of the rug. Actually, Diane is pretty special herself.
American Sampler (29 x 53) by Kathy Ashcom
Hooked by Kathy Ashcom (one of Barb's students). Kathy uses different greens for her background, and a neat plaid to separate the "squares" of designs. She moved her whites around the rug so that the eye goes to all of them. A happy rug indeed.
Angel Times Three (18 x 46) by Betsy Reed
Hooked by Betsy Reed of Claverack, New York. She was one of my students in Jayne Hester's Kinderhook workshops. This rug is much brighter than the one above. A very happy time was had by all. Betsy and Carol Endres are friends and Carol also loves this rug.
Angel Times Three (18 x 46) by Meg Walters
Hooked by Meg Walters of Malvern, Ohio. I love the border on this rug. It is really very easy to do. Choose the "stripe colors" from the center angel and use them in the "stripe" area of the border. Then choose five, six or seven other colors [from the rug] and move them in order around the border spaces. It's a wonderful new border, and pure Carol Endres.
Angels Tread Here (14 x 23) by Mary Lou Mattice
Truly is a delightful rug. Just the right size to sort of fit anywhere. Mary Lou Mattice of Oneonta, New York, hooked the third rug above with me in Kinderhook, New York, at Jayne Hester's workshop. The hair is just great and I love the background color.
Angels Tread Here (14 x 23) by Sharrib Nelson
Hooked by Sharron Nelson of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. This rug just hooks up old and neat. A simple design that is adaptable to any color. Sharron used a slightly lighter color in her border than her background. A reverse of the one above.
Angels Tread Here (14 x 23) by Caron Mazur
Hooked by Caron Mazur. Caron is one of Barb's students. I love the simplicity of this rug. Hook the angel in putty colors for a very old look. Caron used a slightly darker color in her border than the background. This keeps the look of the rug "open" rather than closing it in.
Ark (18x21 or 25x30) by Dotty Raleigh
Dotty Raleigh of Frederick, Maryland, did a wonderful job with this ark. It looks so weathered and old. Her rainbow and sun are fun.
Ark (18x21 or 25x30) by Mary Ann Gearinger
Hooked by Mary Ann Gearinger. I absolutely love to see the different ways people hook the rugs. Both of these good and both very different.
Aunt Samantha (25 x 27) by Lloyd Parker
Hooked by Lloyd Parker of Kansas City, Missouri. A real fun "Fourth of July" rug. The fireworks are a great place for spark. And Aunt Samantha is a bit of a spark herself.
Autumn Sampler (29 x 55) by Cammie Bruce
Hooked by Cammie Bruce, Lincoln, Nebraska. Cammie is a student of Soni Cassell in Lincoln. Just a joyful autumn rug that brings with it the fun of the season. Thanks to both of you.
Autumn Sampler (29 x 55) by Marsha Moyer-Payne
I think that Carol's designs are just super for sampler rugs. And this rug hooked by Marsha Moyer-Payne, Medford, New Jersey, is just wonderful. I love the bright splashes of the orange around the rug. Very happy fall season. Marsha hooked this at the Kinderhook Rug Camp in January of 2002.
Autumn Sampler (29 x 55) by Mary Ann Gearinger
Mary Ann Gearinger hooked this rug. Love the use of all of the beige's and taupe's for the backgrounds. This has allowed the color play to dance around the rug. The lightest beige around the crow is the "highlight" and keeps the rug from appearing flat.
Autumn Sampler (29 x 54) by Gail Tuller
Hooked by Gail Tuller of Novi, Michigan. Gail's teacher is Dianne Klamik of South Lyon, Michigan. They both had a great time playing with this rug. Makes for a very "lively" fall. The straw on Gail's scarecrow is fun.
Berry Basket (32 x 28) by Carol Daugherty
Hooked by Carol Daugherty of Indiana. Three of my favorite things about this rug are the wool she used for the line between the background and the border, her basket and her berries. Thanks, Carol.
Berry Basket (32 x 28) by Betty Bennett
Betty Bennett of Ligonier, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug. Betty's rug is pure sunshine and happiness. The sparkle of the blue berries is neat and the basket is truly fun.
Berry Basket (32 x 28) by Cookie Soisson
hooked by Cookie Soisson of Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The softness of the blue's in this rug are very pleasing to the eye. The spark of the red's add to the happiness of the rug.
Bessie (21 x 25) by Pat Pardue
Pat Pardue, Coatesville, Indiana, hooked this delightful rug. I love the wool she used for the white area of Bessie. Just picks up her spots and makes her more interesting. A very soft and soothing rug. Pat hooked Bessie here at the Woolley Fox during a mini workshop.
Buzzin' Around (23 x 31) by Bonnie Waltz
Hooked by Bonnie Waltz of West Chester, Pennsylvania. This is such a nonsensical rug which makes it very fun to hook. Bonnie's BIG TIME BEE is very whimsical and adds a lot of fun to the rug. White bee skeps are neat and note the flowers at the top of the rug. All hooked using one large colorful plaid.
Buzzin' Around (23 x 31) by Mary Lynne Naples

Bobbie Hornett, of Brownsburg, Indiana, hooked this rug at the Woolley Fox during a mini workshop. Bobbie hooked this because she collects bees which is appropriate to her last name. Bobbie says, "I just love it" and I must say so do I. We had a great time here. Thanks, Bobbie.
Buzzin' Around (23 x 31) by Kathy Wright
Hooked by Kathy Wright, of Lexington, Kentucky. I love the light feel of this rug. It is very nice to see the different coloration's that these patterns can be, and all are wonderful.

Buzzin' Around (23 x 31) by Diane Lestina
Our daughter Diane Lestina hooked this Buzzin' Around for her husband's office. The warmth from the red leaves just makes the hive super neat and plays off of the red table the hive is sitting on. I love the one bright posie at the top.
Buzzin' Around (23 x 31) by Phyllis Knupp
Hooked by Phyllis Knupp of Ligonier, Pennsylvania. The touches of purple in this rug are super, and the bee is always my favorite.

Eight is Enough (24 x 63) by Marsha Moyer-Payne

Fruit Bowl (13 x 27) by Nola Christiana
Nola Christiana, Rochester, Minnesota, hooked this Fruit Bowl. Her fruit is still in the cheery yellow ware bowl, and her rug has a much lighter feel to it because of the light pears and the top border. Both rugs are neat, and it is fun to see them hooked differently.
Fruit Bowl (13 x 27) by Barbara Estridge
Hooked by Barbara Estridge of Auburn, Alabama. Her rug is very lighthearted and fun. Just "dances" with color. Thanks Barbara.
Fruit Bowl (13 x 27) by Kim Vezzani
Hooked by Kim Vezzani, Greenock, Pennsylvania. The fruit in a "yellow ware" bowl looks very cheery. I love the outline on the pears. They were fading into the background and this wool made them very special.

January Sheep (51 x 45) by Annette Allessio
Annette Allessio of Fairmont, West Virginia, hooked this rug. All of these rugs are a bit different in color and all of them send the message of peacefulness throughout their rugs. Annette's is a bit softer because of the wools she used in her trees. All of them just great.
January Sheep (51 x 45) by Betty Bennett
Hooked by Betty Bennett of Ligonier, Pennsylvania. A new pattern for 2008. This rug is spectacular. The simplicity is awesome and the limited color palette just adds to a great rug. The "whitish" trees keep the color play light and fanciful and the corner snow keeps the border light and airy.

Let It Snow (27 x 29) by Bonnie Smith
Bonnie Smith of Frostburg, Maryland, hooked this rug. Is this one happy rug or what?????? There is so much fun in the wools of this rug. The wools in the scarves is a super "high energy" stripe which adds to the joyfullness of this rug. Also love the white confetti wool for the pine bows.
Liberty Line Up (16 x 35) by Judy Carter
This delightful rug was hooked by Judy Carter, Willow Street, Pennsylvania, during a Woolley Fox mini workshop. I love everything about this rug starting with the design.

Liberty Line Up (16 x 35) by Gail Daniels
Gail Daniels, Yakima, Washington. hooked this rug. She had a lot of fun hooking this rug and worked from her four cats for the "kitty faces."

Mister Scarecrow (43 x 30) by Dee Casper
Hooked by Dee Casper, one of Barb's local students. A FUN Fall rug. Dee's background is what I call a "confetti" wool. Lots of small bits of color. Very playful and fun. So is Dee!

Poo Cat (17 x 17) by My Granddaughter Abby

Pumpkins For Sale (26 x 40) by Dee Bartrug
This rug was hooked by Dee Bartrug of Garland, Texas. The green cat is a real eye catcher and big fun. The pumpkins are orange and a pale green. Note the spelling of "pumkins" on the cart. Carol did not mean to spell it like this, but it sure adds whimsy to the rug.
Pumpkins For Sale (26 x 40) by Teresa McKinney
Hooked by Teresa McKinney of Topeka, Kansas. Neat to see this rug done with a medium background. Both this one of Teresa's and the one hooked by Dee are wonderful.

A delightful small rug designed from one of Carol's log houses. The wide chinking is super and makes the log house lighter in appearance. Very fun and quick to hook. A very fun small project which has been designed from a Carol Endres log house. I love her chinking which is wider than the logs. Lots of fun. A hit 'n' miss rainbow is the NUTS!

Hooked by Doris Mullen, Ligonier, Pennsylvania. This is a wonderful naive rug. I love the house in the middle of the much larger posies. Doris did not hook in the border line and I think that just makes a wonderful statement.

Hooked by Wilma Batchelar, Lexington, Kentucky. The lightness and brightness make this a happy, dancing rug. Just a smile to your heart.
Seven Little Snowmen (17 x 54) by Judy Carter

Seven Little Snowmen (17 x 54) by Teresa McKinney
Hooked by Teresa McKinney of Topeka Kansas. What a GREAT job she did with this rug. I love the stars, the primitive snowmen and the sky which is a blue wool with flecks of white in it. Looks just as if the snow is falling. The red bird is one of Teresa's favorite things about this rug.
Sky Bound (22 x 62) by Pat Sims
Hooked by Pat Sims, Hiawatha, Iowa. The colors of this rug really are rich and deep. It was hard for Wayne to get the deep purple color in the border. The play of the blue and purple with the bright golds is super. Pat hooked a very magical rug.
Sky Bound (22 x 62) by Cindi McCullough
Hooked by Cindi McCullough of Whitehouse, Texas. I think that everyone knows I like PURPLE!!!!!!!!!! sooooooooooooooooo I think the angel wings are the BEST. Love her light sky and the wonderful stars. The deepness of the angels and stars balance the house/grass area. Very good.

Barbara Hill, Ligonier, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug. Super fun with the red, gold and blue. Just a nifty rug.
Star Power (21 x 28) by Janet Mcquade
Hooked by Janet McQuade of Vermont. Janet's rug was hooked in Kinderhook, New York, also. As you can see, Star Power does not have to be hooked red, white and blue. It looks super in any color combination you choose. Have fun with the rug.

Hooked by Kim Vezzani of Greenock, Pennsylvania. This rug was hooked in patriotic colors, with a super old background.

Star Spangled Banner (47 x 12) by Patricia Ross
Patricia Ross, Wimberly, Texas, hooked this Star Spangled Banner. Her stars are outlined with the same wool, and then two different wools were used for the fill. Neat look. I love the tree also.

What a great size! Long and narrow, just right for a special place. This was hooked by Kim Vezzani of Pennsylvania. She used four shades of blue for the different backgrounds. Just simple and just perfect.

The Jacks (15 x 35) by Mary McMaster
Mary McMaster of Paulding, Ohio, hooked this rug. You know these guys are ready for Halloween. Love the different rusts in the pumpkins. The rusts play very well with the green in the grass area of the rug.
Three Star Sheep (17 x 21) by Judy Wissler

Warm and Cozy (21 x 36) by Faye Schilling
Hooked by Faye Schilling, Woodbury, Minnesota. Faye did a terrific job with the different wools for the snow. You can see the hills without a sharp line in-between the snow wools. Also notice the light wool used in the tail of the right cat. This keeps it from falling into the snow. Faye hooked this with me at the Arrow Rock Rug School in Arrow Rock, Missouri.
Warm and Cozy (21 x 36) by Sandy Wheeler
Sandy Wheeler of Wilmington, North Carolina, hooked this Warm and Cozy. Spotted cats - yippee!!!! Sandy's deep winter night sky and the gray snow are the perfect backdrop for these cats. The spark jof the red in the houses is warm and friendly.
Warm and Cozy (21 x 36) by Barbara Hoffman
Hooked by Barbara Hoffman, Springboro, Ohio. Barb gave this rug to her daughter. Great gift! Note the white cat on the white snow. Just use a "whiter" wool and it works super. (The discoloration in the upper left corner is the sun!)

A fun and simple rug. Stars and sheep just about says it all. Leslie Wilks, Franklin, Pennsylvania,

Winter Friends (24 x 28) by Sandi Telzrow
Hooked by Sandi Telzrow of Dallas, Texas. Sandi used one plaid wool to hook the sweater of the snowman. She cut the plaid into color sections and hooked them in order. This created the look of a plaid sweater using a single wool plaid. This rug is full of great textured wools and is a real "smile." The border is not the one in our catalog.
Winter Sampler (30 x 70) by Annettee Allessio
Hooked by Annette Allessio, Fairmont, West Virginia. This is a fun rug to hook. As you hook each square it is almost as if you have finished a small rug. The backgrounds may be all the same as they are shown here, or you can do different shades of the same color. Annette hooked all of the snowflakes in the same wool. Sort of like your "quiet spot" moving around the rug. Notice how she carried her reds around the rug. A nice balance!
Winter Sampler (30 x 70) by Gail Tuller
Gail Tuller of Novi, Michigan, hooked this Winter Sampler. Her rug is VERY fun. Winter, wonderful, and whimsical. Really brings out the joy of the snow. Thanks Gail.
Winter Wonderland (23 x 58) by Cathie Gordon
Hooked by Cathie Gordon of Chagrin Falls, Ohio. Truly one of my very favorite winter rugs. Everything we all think about. Cathie's playful use of color for the people and animals is wonderful. Very cozy log cabin. WOW!
Winter Wonderland (23 x 58) by Jennifer Figgins
Hooked by Jennifer Figgins of Sandy, Utah. Just a wonderful winter rug. So much fun and very special. Jennifer was losing the trees so she hooked a darker area behind them to bring them forward. Her use of color in the entire rug is just super. The border was designed by Jule Marie Smith and me and is not available. Note the way Jennifer hooked the cat with different orange wools. An orange striped kitty for sure.
Winter Wonderland (23 x 58) by Marty Petkosh
Hooked by Marty Petkosh of Mount Gretna, Pennsylvania. A truly fun rug. Note the neat wool used on the trees. Very snowy and icy! This rug was taught by both Cynthia Norwood and myself. Was fun for all three of us.
Winter Wonderland (23 x 58) by Tiffany Nowicki
Hooked by Tiffany Nowicki. A wonderful rug. Tiffany's snow and sky colors are just super together, more like a background. The glow on the candles gives you a feeling of a winter night. The red door on the cabin is fun.
Wool Barn (36 x 43) by Linda Traen
Hooked by Linda Traen, Lincoln, Nebraska. Linda is a student of Soni Cassell's in Lincoln. I think that the different color stars in the big flag are super fun.

Wool Barn (36 x 43) by Betty Bennett
Hooked by Betty Bennett of Ligonier, Pennsylvania. Betty's stone wall contains some wool from her husband's britches. Fun to use "special memories" in a rug.

Hooked by Jean Johnson, Grand Blanc, Michigan. Her sky is very very nice. And don't you love the sheep?
Wool Barn (36 x 43) by Deloris Brown
Hooked by Doloris Brown, York, Pennsylvania. Her stars are just wonderful. Doloris used some great soft plaids for them. They sort of blend in with the background, but are soft and visible. The small flag on the barn is neat too!
Wool Barn (36 x 43) by Penny Gessner
Penny Gessner of Ligonier, Pennsylvania, hooked this rug. A wonderful rendition of this pattern. If you look closely at the stone wall, you may see that Penny used some "weird" greens in the stones. Sure does look like moss. The hint of red used in the line between the background and the border helps carry the flag red around the rug. The border was hooked using the same wools as the barn. Looks very weathered and old.
Wool Barn (36 x 43) by Lynda Stout
Lynda Stout, of Lees Summit, Missouri, hooked this Wool Barn. So different from Penny's but also wonderful. Again I think that it is fun to see the way rug makers hook their own hearts and minds in the rugs.
Woolley Angel (32 x 25) by Gail Smith
I love Gail's sheep. The word "Remember" surely makes us all think. A nice, simple, well-done rug with a great message. Hooked by Gail Smith, Crosslake, Minnesota. Thanks, Gail.
Woolley Angel (32 x 25) by Nancy Tiernan
Just a super fun rug hooked by Nancy Tiernan of Glenshaw, Pennsylvania. I love the happiness of the hit 'n' miss flowers and the hit 'n' miss background. The dark background is very dramatic and allows the colors of the angel, sheep and flag to be center stage.
Woolley Angel (32 x 25) by Judy Wissler
Hooked by Judy Wissler, of Connellsville, Pennsylvania. Note the lighter and brighter areas of red around the flowers. This highlights them and allows you to see them better. And you all know that I love the purple wings!

Woolley Wool Keeper (28 x 25) by Louise Schram
A great rug for your wool room or for any room! The rug on the left was hooked by Louise Schram of White House, Ohio, and the rug will indeed hang on the door for her wool room. Note the paisley in the border -- just the right spark.
Woolley Wool Keeper (28 x 25) by Sally Wall
Sally Wall, Fairfax Station, Virginia, hooked this Woolley Wool Keeper. Sally's hit 'n' miss nose is wonderful. This is Sally's first rug. Very fun and whimsical.
