more Quoddy Loopers' mats

More of the Quoddy Loopers have been busy over the summer, while some have taken a hiatus from rughooking. Not so with Sandra - currently on a very large rug for one of her grandsons, drawn by her sister, Heather.

Sandra hooked this hit-or-miss mat to use up odds and ends of woolly worms, but she says that they seem to be multiplying, as her grab bag never gets any less full! The basketwork effect of the scrappy mat is a great simple and effective geometric design.

Next is Sandra's Kings Landing Peddlar, drawn from a photo she took at Kings Landing Historical Settlement, near Fredericton, New Brunswick. Also drawn on the backing by sister Heather... then Sandra went to work. Another beautiful slice of history to add to her collection!

Now Louise has finished a "Big Boned Girl" (pattern is Deanne Fitzpatrick's, with dashes of fun, as most of her mats are). I think I missed getting Louise's winter hooked pillow up, but we'll have snow before too many more weeks go by, I imagine! This 'fat-bottomed boy' is also one of Deanne's designs. I think there was some novelty wool used to add a little sparkle.
