Angel of the Morning Rug Almost Finished!
I first saw this design on Pinterest and fell in love. I was obsessed with finding the designer of this quilt and after a long search for the pattern, with the help from very nice rug hookers, I finally found Beverly Conway's phone number.
Artistic license was taken just a tiny bit on the slippers. I only made some small changes to the bunny's face and eyes. Since it is my second rug, I had never hooked things like the face and hands. It was a little stressful but I think I did OK for the first one. I dyed the wool to match my skin and went a step darker and one pinker.
She is more of a self portrait than I could have created on my own. All the wool was hand dyed just for this project.
Thank you Pinterest for showing me this lovely lady, and thank you Beverly Conway for creating the design.
