Antique rug finished


I whipped the edges this afternoon. I love it!! It is at the front door. (Everyone comes to our back door when they visit) I still can't get the hang of people actually walking on my rugs. I haven't done that many. I'm sure as I hook more I'll feel more comfortable with shoes on them.



The flash on the camera makes it look much brighter than it actually is. It's a grayish blue. In paint colors it's "soldier blue".

Here are some of the girls from our Wednesday night hooking group. What a bunch talented women. They're great!



















And finally, here are three small footstools I found at garage sales. I want to hook a top for each one and probably sell them on ebay or PRHG. A man told me the tall one is probably 50 years old. His dad made it and he sold it to me for $2.00. I'm much more sentimental than that. I could never sell something my dad made with his own hands.

Don't forget to wish the US olympians good luck. Go USA!!!

Let the beauty we love be what we do...

Sheri, I love your rug. But I also love seeing the pictures you posted of the hookers at Simply Fibers. I've been lucky enough to meet both Patti and Tammy at Lenexa.

Wow your rug turned out great. I agree it is hard to take photos of rug hooked projects. But you did a great job.

I am working on a huge challenge rug that I can not share right now. Not until the challenge is over. It has been fun as I would never have made this big of a rug without the challenge.

Happy hooking.
From a fellow hooker.
