Mother Hen

This original hooked mat has SOLD. However, you may wish to purchase the pattern which can be seen on the Pattern Page.

This is an original design and measures 14" x 15 1/2".  The pattern has serged edges and is hand drawn  straight of the grain on Dorr Natural Primitive Linen.

It was a lot of fun to hook and would be a cute spring design, or if you collect chicken and rooster knick knacks, this would go well in the kitchen.  And, if you know someone who does act as mother hen, it would make a great 'thank you' gift.

Jane's Quilt Rug

This rug was inspired by the Jane A.

It is hooked using 100% wool fabric on primitive natural linen foundation.
