Just a simple post on Sunday morning, I hope all
of you who have had Irene this weekend have been okay.
I have turned into such a weather junky. I watch the news
reports and then watch the radar to see what is going
on. Sometimes technology is a wonderful thing.
First of all I wanted to share with you a website that
has a nice beginning tutorial on beginning rug hooking.
She is also having a give a way for a kit with everything
to get started rug hooking.
Margie's blog is called, Hungry Hook Primitives.
She has some really nice wool and her kits are nice too.
So if you have wanted to be a rug hooker here is your chance.
I am thinking of getting a kit and following along with her
so I can learn to be a better rug hooker. Here is a picture of
the kit you can win.
Speaking of rug hooking. I worked on my rug on Saturday.
I worked in the morning cleaning flowerbeds and cleaning the
chicken coop, then it just got too hot to do anything else.
I am following directions for my rug that is in the book and I am
pretty happy at the results. I worked about four hours pulling
loops. All night long I dreamed I was still hooking. Patterns
were in my head. So weird.
After all of the many, many tries and things that now
live in a box under the sink, I have to say this is the first
one I am really pretty happy about. I really enjoy pulling
loops, in fact, I think I could sit and do this and forget
to do my work, clean house, you know all of those things.
I will be hooking more today because we are having another
day of 103. I don't know why this time of year, when it gets hot
like this it seems hotter than it did at the start of the summer.
Thinking of you,
