I am back after a much needed little break! I have been enjoying spring, working in the yard and catching up on life. We have a new baseball team here in Kinston called the Wood Ducks, so we have been enjoying going to see them  play, but now it is time to get back to work!

I have decided to change my name back to Baskets of Wool and you can read about it on my new blog here:  Baskets of Wool

My Etsy page has changed as well, Etsy will redirect you to my new page, so if you are a follower you should get a notice. If not, you can find it here:  Baskets of Wool~Etsy

This blog will stay active for a while, but all new blog posts or updates will be made at my Baskets of Wool blog from here on out.

There might be a few hiccups as I make the transition, so please bear with me and let me know if you see anything that needs changed or updated. You can email me at:

I appreciate your continued support of me and my small rug hooking business.

Heart Mats

I finally finished up these Heart Mats that I have been working on. 
They were fun to make, something therapeutic about little stitches.
Now available in my ETSY shop if you want to check them out.

This and That

I have been missing in action I know, but I have been busy! I know that some of you can relate, but sometimes you just have to check out from the computer to get things done.  I have lots of projects that are almost done and I am trying to get them all finished up. I have a busy couple of months.

First up, is a weekend away to go and hook with a bunch of wonderful ladies from The Hornets' Nest at the Caraway Baptist Conference Center on Asheboro NC. Looking forward to going and hooking for the weekend to finish up a couple of rugs.

Secondly, I am going to teach a workshop for a fun group of ladies in Urbanna, VA. I was suppose to teach there in October last year, but Hurricane Matthew changed those plans. So looking forward to seeing them again and planning some great rugs.

Thirdly, is the Stash Sister's Hook-In in Dayton TX, March 2-4, 2017. They have asked me to be a vendor there and to teach a mini workshop. The mini workshop I am going to teach is a Hooked and Sewn Collage. Here are the pictures of two of the collages that can be made during the workshop.

If you are interested in attending the Hook-In here is the contact information:

I have been hooking on a few things, I have had this rug hooked for quite sometime, but just now got it whipped around. It is called Summer Blossoms and measures 14" X 30". I will get it added to my ETSY shop if anyone is interested in the pattern.

That is if for today!

 Here are a few appliques I made for a customer. They are my own design except for the Holly one, it was adapted from a Needl Love book and is a Maggie Bonanomi design.  The snowman and tree one is available, if interested you can email me.

New Pattern

I am sharing with you a new pattern that I am offering in my ETSY shop.
I had a request to turn, Life is Better with a Dog pattern, into a cat pattern.
This is the design and it is hooked by Victoria! 
She did an awesome job!
I can turn any of my dog patterns into cat patterns, just ask and I will be happy to draw it for you!
