Show & Tell : Sunflowers!


Ah! Sun-flower
By William Blake (1757–1827)

Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers journey is done.

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.

Sunflower Rug

By Sally Perodeau

 

Sally Perodeau



My rug was a monochromatic course given by my favourite teacher Lois who is always so helpful and full of ideas.
The sunflowers on the cover of a Margaret Stewart  magazine inspired me to incorporate some of them with a few changes into my monochromatic challenge. I found keeping all the different shades separate quite difficult, but being more experienced today I think it would be much easier.  I loved using No2  strips of wool once I got  used to the old style  cutter, I enjoyed see how things evolved.

I started this rug while visiting Loretta Moore and loved the bright, bold colours and the motion in the design. It was fun including sari silk and other fibres in my hooking.






Proddy Rug

Sunflower Project

Created By Members of the Guild

 


Sunflower Project



In the June 2014 our guild was invited to attend the Pointe-Claire Horticultural Society’s celebration of their 80th anniversary. To get in the spirit we decided to hold a Sunflower Hook-In and members produced a veritable garden of lovely sunflowers which were then put on display at the PCHS event.
