Not About Quilting...or Napkins...or Kleenex Cozies...

Nope, this post is about hooking.  Wool rug hooking, that is.

It has been a very long time since I sat down and hooked on a rug.  It was back in February of 2011, when I finished my 2sheep rug.  Remember that one?  I loved that rug, but ended up giving it to a good friend.  

Here's a photo...

Since that time, I re-homed most of my rughooking supplies.  I did keep my frame and a few tools, though.  I also kept two rugs.  One that was never started and one that was started but never finished  The unstarted one...3 collies and a lab...let's be real...that one is never going to be hooked.  But, the star rug?  I have recently been thinking that it would be a good thing to work on.  Here's a photo of how it looks thus far...                      

It isn't like I'm looking for something to do, because....well, you know...I have a lot of projects on my list.  Nope...it's because I was inspired by Kelley of With Hook and NeedleShe posted progress photos of a rug she was hooking on Facebook...and I fell in love with that rug!  Guess where it is now?  Here on my living room floor!!!  ohmygosh...I love it!!!  
Isn't it gorgeous?  I love it so much!  It measures about 16 x 26 inches and fits perfectly in front of my tv cabinet.  

And, Kelley also sent along this little mat (about 7 inches square) for me...isn't it too cute?  She left it for me to finish off as a pincushion or a mat...for now it is laying on my table so that I can see it (and smile) often throughout the day!  (This isn't showing good color...the background is more red than it looks, here.)

I have always loved Kelley's work...she is the best at primitive.  

I will let you know what I decide as far as finishing my big a** star rug.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.". Jeremiah 29:11

Kelley does make the best primitive rugs, love her hooking and choice of wools.
I haven't hooked in ages, but I still have my supplies, getting tempted to start a smaller one for a bench.
