I should never have opened my Halcyon Yarn email… sigh.. There is an article in there about rug hooking. Now..a long, long time ago in a galaxy far away… I needle punched a bedspread to fit my son’s crib. We called it punch work and used a punch needle to make chenille but it is basically the same thing. It was the cutest thing you have ever seen. There was a carousel horse surrounded by a circle of color and ribbons that surrounded the edges. It was lovely. This was used on the crib for all my babes.. Well.. it was one of those irreplaceable things lost in the tornado.. I have often wondered about taking that craft up again. It’s only been 45 years… hmmm
This time I would like to do a few rugs to put beside the beds since I really don’t want (and don’t have) any carpet in my house. Take a look at the video. Susan Stephenson shows the basics of designing your own rugs.
Very tempting for me to run to Hobby Lobby and BEGIN! lol Will try to resist the urge for a bit.. at least until I finish a few of my many UFOs.. Or maybe not…
Have a wonderful day.. ;o)
