Welcome!

I love working with crafts, rug hooking, wool felt, penny rugs and stitcheries. Primitives are my favorites, but I also love to mix different styles of decorating.

Please sit back, relax and enjoy my blog.

Rug Hooking - So Many, So Little Time

I've found so many great blogs about rug hooking. I'm really enjoying looking at everyone's rugs and the different designs and techniques. I have so many rugs that I want to start (and finish) in my lifetime, but how am I going to accomplish all of that? I also have so many other crafts to do - stitcheries, wool felt items, pillows. Sometimes (actually a lot of the time) I come home from work and I'm wore out. I basically sit on the couch and don't get a lot accomplished. I'd like to say that I work on some kind of craft everyday, but we all know that it just doesn't happen that way. Life keeps it from happening. I have a fairly stressful job and I'm not exactly a spring chicken... It seems to be wearing on me more and more lately. I also want to get into the dyeing thing for the wool for my rugs. Of course, I've been saying that for 2 years. I have all the stuff to dye, but just can't seem to take that first step to try it. Sigh...

So I guess I'd better go ... I have much rug hooking to do ... or stitcheries ... or wool felt pillows ... or pincushions... I think I need some chocolate...

Hi Sharon,
thanks for leaving such a nice comment on my blog. I love your pomegranate rug. I did one too and it is in front of my hutch on the floor! Yours looks beautiful. I see you want to start dyeing your wool. If you need any help, advice, pointers, whatever, just drop me an email, and I'd be happy to help you. I love dyeing my own wool. I look forward to keeping up with you and your blog. Have a great day!

Hi Sharon ~
I found your blog from a comment you left on Kathy's blog ! Rugs of Mine...in Time.
I am mainly a hooker, but I also do punch needle and after an absence of almost twenty years, have started a bit of cross stitching. I've also made one penny rug and have another one I want to do.
I've been collecting antiques for 25+ years.
Welcome to blogland and I do hope you will stop by my blog!
Pug hugs :)
Lauren
