Hooking Rugs Can Be Addictive!
There is more to life on the farm than feeding cows and donkeys! There is the afternoons spent fishing, gardening, laundry, and yes hooking...rug hooking that is!
I've been known through the years to have an addiction for things...now there not bad things just stuff like tennis! Yes, played for years 3 to 4 days a week, quilting....lets just say I have enough quilt tops for the entire family plus the neighbors, needle punch and rug hooking...okay so I bought out the entire stock of dmc floss when the local Wal-Mart stores was clearing it out....lets just say I have tubs of floss and leave it at that!
Then let's just say a gal can never have enough wool or can she....
Maria of Star Rug Company sent me this wonderful pattern and it worked up in just a couple of evenings....Harvest Angel will make a perfect gift for someone on my list!
Still trying to use up the big ol' basket of scraps I made this scrappy heart and key rug....I don't think I even made a dent in the big ol' basket of wooly worms.
This lil' red house came out of the scrap basket, too....I've been making myself bind rugs. I must admit though I get several ready before I grab the needle and thread.
Well I'm off to find my hook or needle!
