A New Border

 I just finished the border on my rug and told you I would share it with you. I decided to do a penny rug of sorts border.  I think it added a lot to the rug and am happy that I took the time to do it. 
Here is a close up of the border that I stitched.

Two rugs hooked!

  Had a chance to go hook with some lovely ladies at Camp Caraway in Asheboro, NC over the weekend and was able to hook these two rugs. The one above I only had some background to finish.
 I am calling it "The Neighborhood" and it measures 18" X 24". I still need to finish the edge and think I will just whip it with yarn.

This rug I am calling "Americana Stars" and it measures 21.5" square.
I need to finish the edge on this one, but I think I am going to do something different with it.
So, I will share it again when I get it finished.

I have not been doing much hooking and don't have anything new to show you. So I thought I would share a Santa rug that I hooked back in 2003.  It is always fun to look back at my earlier rugs and see how I have grown as a rug hooker. I have certainly changed my style and technique, but I still love to use that same background in a lot of my rugs now. This was hooked in a #8 and #6 cut of wool!! I now hook mostly in #9 cuts and I pull much higher!
