Image- Ned by Barb Carroll

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Barb Carroll

A big time fun rug to hook. Love the cozy look of this rug. The butterfly and posie are many smiles and of course make no sense at all Very fun! I sort of “haloed” the butterfly with a softer and grayer wool. The word NED is hooked using a new piece of paisley!

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Pat Donoho

Hooked by Pat Donoho, Upperco, Maryland. I am a big fan of “Ned” and the way that Pat used her colors is just big time fun! The brightness of the teal lets you know that Ned has had big fun in his history. The red horse is just perfect.

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Alice Fraizer

Way to go Alice! Her rugs are always fun – (like she is) Ned is just fabulous – the different wools keep him lots of fun and very primitive. He is “set off” with the dark background around him which really showcases him. Very good.

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Ron Twigg

Ron Twigg of Keedysville, Maryland, hooked this Ned, taught by Jayne Hester. Seems like I always have a favorite “something.” Ned is my favorite horse and I think that Ron and Jayne did a wonderful color story. Love Ned’s coat and love the flower pot with the “fleur.” Note the way that Ron outlined that area with a dark so it would stand up in the background.

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Shirley Harms

Hooked by Shirley Harms of Highville, Pa. This rug is adorable! Funky everything at its best. Shirley’s husband is Ned, and his twin brother is Ted AND they were named after the family mules on the farm. So where is Ted’s rug?

Ned (20 x 35)

Hooked by Jo Leedy Ritter Wick

Fun and funky – Ned may even have a little zebra in him with a mane like that! Great way to make his legs stand out with a color that contrasts with the rest of his fur.  And the light turquoise background just makes him “pop” all the more!

New England Berry Tree (32 x 53)

Hooked by Bonnie Smith

Love, love, love this pattern. The softness and odd colors make this rug “at home” anywhere it goes. The background is one piece of wool and adds to the age and softness of Bonnie’s rug.

Image- New England Berry Tree by Cindy Hanula

New England Berry Tree (35 x 53)

Hooked by Cindy Hanula

This rug is so good in any colour play. This rug is soft, old, and muted. The way the border surrounds the rug plays well with the left horse and keeps the light background “just right”. Note the way Cindy played with other light shades in the background.

Image- New England Berry Tree by Crystal Brown

New England Berry Tree (32 x 53)

Hooked by Crystal Brown

Hooked by Crystal Brown of Washington, Pennsylvania. There are not enough words to say just how perfect this rug is. Be sure to look closely at all of the color placement and how things play off of one another. Keep remembering – do not worry about what color something should be. This is a classic example of how neat this is.

New England Berry Tree (32 x 53)

Hooked by Ellie Bennett

New England Berry Tree was hooked Ellie Bennett of Littlestown, Pennsylvania. Absolutely wonderful rug. The way Ellie’s colors roam around the rug is super. Note how the red horses bring up the color story on the rug and then play around the border.

Image- New England Berry Tree Adapted by Libbey Lundgren

New England Berry Tree Adapted (32 x 53)

Hooked by Libbey Lundgren

The sheep are NOT in the pattern. Libbey added these as she and her husband have sheep and again I love to see the rugs personalized. Her color story is wonderful with the purples and greens – the darkness of the border play with the dark sheep and dark berries. Very neat.

This geometric is perfect anyway it is hooked – here Elizabeth created horizontal boxes rather than triangles. Perfect – the reds and golds are very striking.

New York Geometric (20 x 33)

Hooked by Gail Whitcomb

Gail Whitcomb of Massena, New York, hooked this New York Geometric. The light hit ‘n’ miss area looks like it is laying on top of another rug. Super image. Neat – neat – neat. The softness of the background rug holds the center of the rug in place – and sort of “hugs” it. Jayne Hester worked with Gail on this rug. Hugs to both ladies for a great rug.

Image- New York Geometric Original

New York Geometric (20 x 33)

Original

This is the original antique rug. I bought this 1885 rug when I was in Hudson, New York. Just a great geometric. Fun for you to do with your left over strips. For the dark lines, use different dark greens, blues, blacks, browns, etc. A super look.
