Cougar Close Up

Dimensions: 20" x 26"
Materials: #4-, 6-, and 8-cut hand-dyed and as-is wool on monk's cloth
Adapted with permission from a photograph by Lunasa Photography (Louise Higgins) and hooked by Judy Carter, Willow Street, Pennsylvania, 2015.
Featured in: Celebration 26

"This rug is special to me because I loved the photo and it was the first time I used #8 cuts to create a realistic animal. The eyes are my favorite part, and they hooked very quickly. I found it a little harder to “think big” as I hooked each section, but with practice, it became easier, and I am very happy with the results. This piece hangs in my house, and it’s the first thing I see each time I enter the house. He’s so dramatic; I always enjoy seeing him hanging on the wall."
- Judy Carter, Celebration Hall of Fame 2018
