Happy New Year!
The holidays were busy here at our home. My grandson was weaned off his oxygen at the beginning of December which means more babysitting time for me. When you add in all the duties of Christmas, such as decorating, wrapping, cooking, baking, it meant that my blogging had to be set aside for a while. I also did quite a bit of knitting over the holidays. Knitting was my first fiber hobby that I took up, maybe at the age of 10 or so. It really feels good to get out the knitting needles and yarn every once in a while. It is soothing and meditative...and hey! I'm still using wool and textures and color!
But now it's back to rug hooking! Hooray!
I still have to take down some Christmas decorations but lately I've been really inspired by Valentine's Day. Somehow those little red hearts are speaking to my heart...and in contrast to that, I have been really inspired by all things white too. I know this is the way a lot of people feel at this time of year, but I have not always been so inspired by Valentine's Day.
So the next few blog posts are going to be either "Rug Of The Day" or "Pattern of the Day" with the theme of valentines, hearts, and spring.
Three Hearts Kit
I really loved hooking this...one of those projects that practically hooks itself!
This would be a wonderful project for a beginner or a quick and fun project for the more experienced rug hooker. The mat is 10" x 10"... just the right size to use as a mat/hot pad for your favorite tea pot!
You can find the kit here, with the wool cut into #8 strips and a basic hook:
If you would like a Three Hearts kit with uncut wool and linen pattern (no hook), please contact me through my website and I can put one together for you.
