Last night was hookin' at the library. The usual suspects were there working on amazing rugs!
The rug above was hooked by Carol a number of months ago. It is many shades of very primitive greens. Below, Mitsuko is hooking the same rug in a very similar palate. That's Karin, eBay seller Primitivespirits, to the right.
Karin hooked the Olde Rag Dolls rug, a design by Julie from Plum Run Creek and currently has it listed on eBay.
This is the reproduction rug Carole is working on. She has made a considerable amount of progress since I last showed it.
Lisa from Twice Loved Woolens was working on transferring a pattern to linen. It is based on an antique rug and it is HUGE! I think she said it is about 36" x 60".
Candy was knitting this evening. She makes the most wonderful socks!!! I believe she has knitted over 100 pair.
I took the horse rug to get opinions from the "experts". I was hoping they would not find something horribly wrong with the color choices because I am not one to reverse hook. Everyone agreed that this little brown area detracted from the rug and gave me a suggestion on how to remedy the situation. I don't mind taking this little bit out, so that is on the weekend to-do list. That and actually finishing the hooking on this rug!!! Oh, I can't wait to be done with this rug.
Most of our snow has melted and just the ugliest and dirtiest snow is left. I'm sure all you northerners know exactly what I mean.
Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you will come again soon.
Welcome and thank you for stoppping by. I live just two blocks from beautiful Lake Erie. I am a rug hooker, needle puncher, and antique collector. I bought my first antique in 1983 and have not stopped since. I keep telling my boys that the antiques are their inheritance.
I am mom to two adult sons and grandma to 12 year old Jake.
