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.
There are always bumps. Found a few bumps in the road on the way to the new website but I think we're good now. "Feel free to contact us!"...except I never provided you with an email address, mailing address, or even phone number. Duh! Thank you to Randi who found that mistake for us.
Please "Feel free to contact us!" with other little screw-ups you find on the website. Post your comments here...(if it is technically possible and I haven't messed that up too)
The Seaside Sisters have moved into their new virtual rug hooking shop. All clean and new. Seems like there is so much more space than the last website.
Take a look around. It'll take a while for us to all know where everything is. I know I won't remember where I put anything. The Search button is a godsend. If you can't find a pattern you are looking for, let me know. For now, some are still in a virtual box in the virtual attic.
