Habit Forming



This is a long thought over craft that I have finally gotten off the ground. Well, sort of anyway. This is my first practice piece using recycled wools that I had purchased at Goodwill and had shown several entries ago. I have never even seen anyone rug hooking, so I am pretty much all on my own here. I take that back, I did watch my Grandmother hook masterful pieces of art, but I had to have been 5 years old, possibly less!

I've looked and looked for wool rughooking blogs but have come up almost bone dry!

Next I will purchase a proper frame (I'm using an ash quilting hoop presently.) and some better wool. I think many of my complications have come from a loose weave. My first project will be a small rug about 24 x 30 for in front of the back slider door. I will put our "monogram" on it.

It's nice... How big across is it? It looks very small, but i'm not sure if that's just your picture taking skills or not?
