I really, really intended to be better at this blogging on a regular basis than I have been in the last few months. Summer just took over my life with all sorts of issues, mostly personal family things that sucked any spare time right out of my life. As things settle (a bit), I am here to say I am so sorry to my readers who have asked questions and continued to read this blog – even reading past posts and responding to them. I am so grateful for each of you – showing an interest in my work and my blog. So now, I will allow life to move me forward (like I could stop it if I wanted to – LOL) and just roll with it.
Right now, I am working on a Hook-a-Month project. I offered this pattern and project to my web newsletter subscribers about a month ago, and many of them signed up. Now it is open for anyone else who wishes to sign up. Basically it consists of a gorgeous antique adaptation of a hooked rug from the 1800s. I am offering the pattern and wool project over a period of time – much like the quilters’ block of the month clubs do. If you want to know more about it, visit my web site here for all the information. If you decide to sign up, do it quickly because I only have a few of these left. I can’t wait to start working on this one myself. I want to work on mine along with the rug hookers who sign up and work on this a month at a time so we can share our experience and compare our rugs as they progress.
I absolutely love, love, love this rug! The design is great, and I especially love the faded old colors. I hope to be able to replicate them fairly close for the kits. It will be so much fun to see how everyone’s rugs differ and how they are the same. I have some hookers who ordered their kits with the wool already cut, but I am hoping that some of the others who ordered kits with uncut wool will be using different strip widths so we can see how the rug looks coming off the hooks of each one of them, as well.
I have work waiting for me, so my dear readers, thank you again for being here (if you are . . .) and I again promise to try to do better at posting more frequently now that things are simmering down a little. Until next time . . . Happy Hooking!
