Pocket Change & Connecting Hearts
Hand Hooked Rugs

This week's off to a good start with the finish of two little hooked mats. The pocket change mat used up lots of odd wooley worms.

Connecting hearts are made of hand~dyed wools with a few vintage ones thrown in here and there.

I have to say my hubby was a little worried the other day when we went to a thrift store and I made my way to the register with a green wool men's blazer. Let's just say overall's and wool blazers not a good combo. No worries it went straight to the washer and dryer and then into the rug hooking basket.

Happy Trails...Ginger

I've had a great time catching up on your blog Ginger!
I love all of your wonderful rugs. One of these days I'm gonna pull out mine and try hooking again.
I just love that Big Ears! He is so cute!
I've still got my snowman on my door and get compliments on him all the time.
Take care!
