I thought I would share with you my latest little rug that I hooked. I am calling this one "Tulip Bowl."

Thrift Stores and Antiques

I know I don't need to be hitting the thrift stores looking for wool, but any primitive rug hooker has a hard time passing up some great textures. I could see these hooked in a great rug and couldn't pass them up. So I bought four blazers and two skirts and my friend Marion and I sat one (or two) days and tore them apart!!
I went to an antique show here in a town called New Bern and came away with the small galvanized milk cooler there in the picture on the left. I am working on getting a collection of galvanized containers to do this:
I found this on pinterst and thought it was really fun!! So I have a few more to collect and then decide what I am going to plant in them!!

Scrappy Flowers and Strawberries

This is a little rug I drew and hooked over the weekend. Will get it listed on ebay today! It is great to use up more scraps, although my basket doesn't seem to be getting any smaller! I guess I will have to hook a few more scrappy rugs.
The strawberries was a teacher's workshop piece that I have had laying around partially hooked so I decided to get it out and finish it! I love getting an old project finished. I still have to bind it, but that is the easy part!!
