polly minick and her sister have a new book out!…….
this is a gorgeous book that explores how polly and her sister use their rugs and quilts to enrich their homes. i highly recommend this one!
i miss hooking. really, really miss it. so, today i stepped way outside my comfort zone and spent money i don’t have to invest in a future i really want to pursue.
i purchased this rug hooking frame….
… and this cutter from The Merry Hooker ~ click here for her shop.
this is an investment, a big one, and i’m somewhat terrified. why? well, for three reasons:
my 3 best friends are also my worst enemies when it comes to hooking. they want to lounge, languish and lie on my rugs… not just the finished ones, which they love to pull apart, but more importantly the ones that i’m working on… while i’m working on them. i’m hoping, hoping, hoping, that now that they’re a little older they’ll allow me to hook without playing with my wool strips, napping on my lap, biting my hook, and generally making themselves PRESENT….
wish me luck!
