the tale of a rug-hooking journey.....

Tis a favorite past time full of starts and stops, but regardless the length of time in between, I always return to hooking. The following is just a snippet of that journey, of patterns, of tips, a favorite hooker or two and designs along the way. This is truly a journal for my perusing, but should you stumble onto me.....Welcome to the diary of a "hooker"! :)

hollyhocks bloomed...

and bees buzzed.  This is a piece I finished mid-spring.  Of course, the goal had been to finish it mid-spring of 2009 not 2010.  Vat can I say?  It's the start/stop thing I mentioned above.  Did I also mention I am the grandmother (better known as nonni) to 8 (four boys and four girls)?  They are pure perfection but a perfection that's not conducive to hooking (nor would I want to) when they are in the house! Laura Schultz/Prairie Primitives (a local guru of hooking) designed the piece and I love it!  Spring with a touch of leopard bloomed brightly in my favorite chair this March!


  1. Love the hollyhocks--my favorite flower. I see you have roving in your heading. Are you a spinner also? I am taking spinning classes (no, not the exercise kind--don't be silly!) in November.

  2. No spinning here of either kind! A trip awhile back to Canada produced a suitcase home full of the pretties you see pictured in the soup tureen. Tell me about you like it?
