A Few Mats

 I have hooked a little since coming home from teaching in Cape May. I was going to share pictures of my great week there, but the pictures didn't turn out so great!! So maybe next time!!

 You can find these hooked mats for sale in my Etsy shop. 
I hope to get a few more hooked, 
along with a few new patterns and get them listed soon.
There is just not enough hours in a day, to get it all done.
Thanks for stopping by!

Rugs on Display

My friend Marion and I, have been asked to put our rugs on display at a local museum/art center called the Greene County Museum.  We are excited to share our love of rug hooking with the local community.  Since moving to North Carolina five years ago, we have not found anyone to get together with in our little corner of the state to hook with.  We hope that we will meet someone or find someone that is interested in learning.  We have 90 rugs in the display and  I bet you can tell which ones I hooked and which ones I did not!

These were taken the day we were setting up the display and a few of the pictures didn't turn out and the lighting was not the best that day. It is a little venue, but we are happy and honored to share our love of rug hooking!

Penny Rugs

 I have been making some penny rugs for a little change of pace. 
I have really been enjoying the creating and stitching part of them. 
The one below is made from an old wool blanket.

I love making penny rugs in Americana colors. The one below is a navy blue hand dyed background with primitive red and mustard pennies.

This penny rug has a touch of whimsy with the scallop edge and the striped cotton flannel on the back. The pennies are all colors, no two are alike. 
The colors on all the penny rugs are much more muted than what shows in the pictures. I was having a hard time getting the true colors.
They are all available to purchase in my Etsy shop.
Thanks for stopping by!

I have been hooking a little, enough to finish this rug. Mostly I have been working on finishing some rugs. They were starting to pile up. Not that I don't like finishing, but I am excited to start the next rug!
 I am sure some of you can relate to that!

A Few Hooked

I have been trying to finish a few rugs that have been left unfinished for way too long.  The horse and the sheep rug were teacher workshop pieces (I have not been to teacher's workshop for 5 years) so that tells you how long they have been laying around. I modified them and simplified them so I could get them finished. I still have to bind them, but at least they are hooked!

Rug Show

My friend Marion and I drove up to Camp Caraway Rug Workshop this last week to see the rug show. It is such a beautiful area and a great camp!!
Here are some of the pictures I took before my camera battery decide to die. I took a few with my phone camera and I will see if I can edit them and post in another post. 

I didn't get the names of who hooked what, sorry about that,
 but lots of talent indeed!
Enjoy the show!
