I honestly have to say I haven't been hookin' long. Rug hookin' that is! I tried it about 2 years ago and struggled. I've seen some wonderful things done with the wool and hook and decided I just needed to give it another try. So I bought a new hook from a dear friend and drew off a pattern and away I went. Amazing what a different hook will do for you. So after making some small mats and rugs I decided to give myself a challenge.
When Dad and I went to Texas back in the fall I stopped by Stonehill Spinning in Fredericksburg. The gals there were so nice and I purchased a couple of patterns.
"Whiskers" is a big fall runner measuring 20 x 62 1/2 inches.
Hopefully by this Fall "Whiskers" will be totally done!
Sloan loves to climb...and it really keeps you on your toes. He was so thrilled this morning when his Daddy dropped him off to see a new slide waiting.
