The “Poppy” Mat

When I posted this mat last week, the response surprised me.  The “Poppy” mat has become the most popular item in the studio!  It seems that “pretty” is making a comeback.  Many have requested a kit and I have hooked enough of it to know the amounts of materials needed.  This kit is not a “paint by numbers” kit….it will include the pattern, silk ribbon, the wool and a photo which you will use as a guide.   With these tools, you will be encouraged to experiment and play with color placement and hooking style.  If you have never used silk sari ribbon, this kit is a good introduction.  The photo shows my progress so far.  As you might notice, it does need a bit of tweaking.  It does hook up quickly and I expect to have it completed in a few days.  Any kits that go out now, will include this photo until it is completed.  If you prefer to order items separately, the following is a general list of the materials used in “Poppies”

Studio Line Silk Sari Ribbon:  1 skein blush, 1 skein ivory

Mottled Solid Dyed Wool:   Sunkissed Dark, Sunkissed Medium, Spanish Moss Light,

Spot dye:   Pink pearl

Texture:  grumpy old man, cotton eyed joe, old glory white and dorr natural.

The pattern “Poppies” and kit are now available on the website.
