What I've been up to today...


I've been rug hooking a bit today. This is a rug that I have been wanting to hook for a long time. It is a design by Blackbird Designs and is in their 'Samples of the Past' booklet series. I bought the series for the quilt pattern that is in it and when I got them, I saw this rug on the cover. I had never heard of rug hooking before, and after that, I set out to find out how. I couldn't find any classes in my area, so I bought a beginners kit on ebay and set out to learn on my own. I've done a couple of small rugs and finally decided it was time to tackle this large rug. Above is my progress for today.

Oh, I can see from the drawing on the fabric that this is going to be one gorgeous rug hooking! Keep going!
