Three Rugs Finished

At our rug hooking meeting on Wednesday there were three finished rugs shown to the group. YAY! Isn't that always the best feeling? This first one was hooked by Myra - it includes the first wools that she ever dyed and it reminds me of a design made on a Spirograph - remember those?


Arline did this fun Halloween rug designed by a local gal - the way she outlined the cat & the witch's boots and hat makes them just POP! This rug isn't a rectangle - it's a trapezoid, with the top wider than the bottom - you probably thought it looked like that just because of the camera angle, huh?


And Marliss finished whipping the edges of her star mat while we were there. This is her very first project and she did a great job. She already has her next design drawn on the linen and all the wool cut for it - I know it's going to be spectacular!

OK I want to learn how to hook. What do you suggest? Should I talk to Kay? How did you learn how to do it? Mimi
