Progress!


So far I'm making a bit of progress on ol' Whiskers. The background color is a muted old looking green.

When I start something I like I can hardly wait to see it finished. Perhaps this won't take so long after all!

Oh someone asked if I have taken lessons on hooking. A friend of mine did show me a bit a couple of years ago but for the most part I've looked in books and just a few weeks ago I bought a couple of dvd's by Gene Shepherd. They really show you step by step.

Well back to pulling a few more loops.

Happy Trails....Ginger

I dont know of anyone around here who hooks but I may have to find those videos and see if I can figure it out myself I love to try new things and if I can do something as beautiful as yours, I'd love to give it a try. Blessings, Karen

I have tried several hooks. What I am having the most success with is a pencil~type hook. Regarding the dvd's I began with DVD #2 but I had already had a little experience with hooking. Hope this helps.

Looking good! I was just reading about the history of rug hooking this weekend. I find it so fascinating and hope to give it a try someday. Of course, my mom tells me I have enough "hopes" for 2 lifetimes but I think that is a good thing!

Smiles,
