I'm not sure that I want to get into the blog business. Seems to me I waste enough time on the computer away from the normal things of life (of course, including rug hooking). But I'll start out and see where it goes. Just realize I'm a little reticent to start.
I am a rug hooker, started out that way, at least. We'll not started out...actually,started out as an embroiderer of jeans and work shirts, remember the day? And I learned to knit from my grandmother since she was the only one who could teach me since we were both left-handed. I am a whiz at making silly little knit slippers with pompoms. Made a couple sweaters too, but not a great knitter. Don't even ask me about socks.
Did my share of macramé plant hangers, few counted cross-stich pieces (ugh). Then got started on needlepoint...
Now needlepoint is something you can really get into....so long as you have money to burn. Think rug hooking is getting a little pricey? Check out needlepoint canvases and fancy threads.
I guess I still love needlepoint. Will probably continue to do it. I have a partially done canvas that has sat on a frame for at least 7 years. The fact that it's still on the frame means I haven't given up on it.
And then came rug hooking........
