Hand-Hooked Skylands Rug

I received a beautiful email recently from a textile artist named Micheline Mann, who creates stunning hand-hooked rugs from her home and studio in Paisley, Ontario. She had come upon my blog and wanted to share images of this rug she hand-hooked for Martha for her home in Maine. The inscription reads "Skylands 1925" (the year the home was built) and featured prominently in the imagery is a pair of ring-necked pheasants, which are native to Mount Desert Island.

Micheline sent the rug to Martha and not long after she received a personal call from Martha's assistant thanking her for the rug and letting her know how much Martha loves it. I wouldn't be surprised if this rug is now somewhere in that sprawling hilltop estate.

That's the completed rug, above. So much detail! To see more of Micheline's beautiful rug work visit her website at
