One of my retirement goals was to start rug hooking. Sure I had dallied at it a bit years ago making a small coaster or two, but now have the time for the real deal! I find it a perfect activity for those moments when you have some spare time but don't feel like finding a pattern or putting together tools or materials. It is there and ready to go for a few moments hooking!
I have accomplished quite a bit at a weekly hooking with friends and so a peek at my current work is below. Mind you, like knitting and hand quilting you need to develop a rhythm for even stitches or loops in this case which isn't quite there yet for me, but will come in time. I call this my practice rug. It is an old pattern which I really love.
The early April weather is still chilly here in Nova Scotia. Spring bulbs are starting to show and last week I planted tomato seeds. Hoping for a bit more warmth soon!
Very excited to hear George Canyon at a concert locally tonight!
Happy stitching and hooking!
