Lately I have spent hours at my rug frame hooking a pattern to be unveiled at our Tipp City, Ohio rug hooking class. I will let you take a little peek at my progress. Students will have an opportunity to hook my design or a variation of it or one of Alice Strebel design ideas. I also have another design finished for class. If you can’t be at the Tipp City class, I will show you the completed rugs after our class is over.
Maybe it is because the weather has been so rainy, but I felt the urge to hook my house a friendly old mustard yellow. Every window has its own character, as if giving us a glimpse of what is inside. I imagine activity going on in its rooms: baking, reading, knitting, napping, or laughing. I feel sure of it.
I put a lot of heart into my rug hooking, as my designs give me a sense of home-ness, of grounding. That is part of the joy of all of my crafting. I put emotion into it, and my creations seem to reflect it back to me.
Have a creative day ~ Karen
