About

Hello!  I am Rebecca Lindquist, and I am the simple quiet….  At least, I’d like to be simple and quiet, but it takes some work to live quietly in this beautiful, overwhelming world.  As for simple, well, I think I’m simple but my husband and sister would beg to differ.  Oh well….  I’m trying.  I started this blog as a way to track my progress, both in my quest for quiet simplicity, and in my work as a fiber artist.

I find great comfort and peace in the two mediums I work in:  rug hooking and punch needle embroidery.  What is more beautiful, more soothing, warmer or more fulfilling than wool? (did someone say, “Chocolate”?)  The way it fluffs up when washed and dried, the way it welcomes dyes, the way it keeps its soft edge when torn ~ O, the loveliness of wool!  What is a better compliment to rug hooking than punch needling?  The two seem woven together, and, indeed, in my life they are.

  1. Becky,

    Your blog is “simply” delightful. I’m so glad you’ve started one, the first step is the biggest. This is a fantastic way for you to share your creative energies with others.

    Love the cat thumbs! I don’t remember noticing them when they were little…maybe because they didn’t hold still long enough to see them.

    I look forward to reading your blog posts.

  2. Hi Rebecca, my One Nation arrived yesterday and it is fabulous. It was wrapped so beautifully and I so much appreciate having a piece of your incredible work. Thank you again. Judy

  3. Hi Rebecca, I had already subscribed to your blog before I realized that you were the Rebecca Lindquist who designed the fabulous black cat. Do you sell that pattern, because I definitely need to hook him for my grandbabies? Please let me know. I don’t know if my email shows up on these things, but it is betlann@yahoo.com. You are truly an inspiration! Betsy

  4. Oooh, you have created such a lovely blog! After spending a bit of time wandering through your pages, my fingers are now itching to give punching a go…thank you most kindly for the inspiration! I shall look forward to following your journey taking delight in fabrics and fibers.
    Warmly,
    Judy

  5. Hi,
    I stumbled upon your wonderful blog, I love it. Ireland is my favorite place on earth, it the home I have yearned for all my life. I have been going over for well over 20 years and each trip is a delight and renews my spirit. I am a rug hooker too and have a small farm with sheep chickens and 6 cats. Thanks for sharing yours.

  7. Hi Rebecca, you have inspired me to start punching again. I usually rug hook, but I am glad for a change. Love your use of color and distressing with coffee(any kind)?. I am working on horse on hill from Notforgotten farm, and I am using most of your colors, because I simply love them. Every day, I reread parts of your blog- you are so giving with your talent. Thanks April I have four cats, 2 dogs, 1 elderly rat, and 2 skinney pigs- so I truely enjoy your cat photos.

  8. Hello Rebecca!
    I just happened onto your blog and love the beautiful things you have shown us all. I an a newbie to punch needle and love it! I am originally a cross-stitcher for over 30 yrs. and now I love punching just as much! I am wanting to know where you can purchase the patterns you’ve done by Kelley Belfast. I just think they are so prim and beautiful! I hope to here from you soon!

    Thanks for your time,
    Tammy
