Olde Father Christmas~ Rug Hooking Pattern On Primitive Linen
Vermont Harvest Folk Art by Doreen Frost
~Christmas is one of my FAVORITE holidays, second only to Thanksgiving. The first snow, smoke billowing from chimneys, hot cocoa, cozy talks by the fire, goode friends, family and cheer ~ what is not to love~ I especially love to create for these two holidays and this design, Olde Father Christmas is my absolute favorite design I've ever made for the Christmas season. He is also one of my first designs :).
You will see, from the first photo, I've hooked this design, previously, with wool threads using the Oxford needle. I can not wait to hook it with my hand dyed wool yardage and my Hartman hook!!! I've still trying to achieve just the right red but as soon as I do....hooked he shall be!!! :). **The second photo is my punched version with a different color palette which, I believe, I will use when I do my hooked version.**
~ PATTERN ON LINEN ~ 17" X 22"~
**Feel free to request a particular size as I am happy to do that for you**
All of my patterns are carefully drawn, on the straight of the grain, on high quality primitive unbleached linen with a generous 4" border & zigzag edges.
