The long awaited Beau to complement my previous work, The Vintage Bathing Beauty, is finally complete. I’m delighted with the dapper charm that evolved with my rug hooking. A day at the beach never seemed so inviting.
The Beau is hooked with a combination of new and vintage wools and a bit of yarn. The beach ball is hooked with strips of color cut from a recycled cashmere scarf. His “frame” is a door fashioned from old pickets and the handle is a salvaged bit of much loved rusty junk.
Overall measurements: About 22″ wide, 40″ tall.
The mat/hooked portion measures about 14.5″ wide and 24.5″ tall.
