Sheep in the Hills
Dear Beginning Rug Hooker
Sheep in the Hills, 18" x 12", #8-cut wool on linen. Designed and hooked by Mary Johnson/Designs in Wool, Tujunga, California, 2013.
When it comes to real-life inspiration for rug hooking motifs, sheep have to be at the top of the list! They provide the beautiful medium we use to produce our rugs. For this winter issue, I designed Sheep in the Hills, a whimsical, primitive sheep ready for the holidays with a Christmas bell and a red collar.
