Brand new blog, brand new beginning....

Hello and thanks for stopping by. I have thought long and hard on whether or not I really need to start a new project like my 'own' blog. I have so enjoyed visiting others blogs like 'Rugs and Pugs', 'Plum Run Creek', "Olde Glory', 'Not Forgotten Farm' and the list goes on and on. I start my day with these and travel on over to any other followers of theirs and before you know it.... well you all know how it is, right? The inspiration they have given me alone is amazing and worth the hours spent behind this 20" monitor.

I love primitive style rug hooking with nothing smaller than an 8 cut and that is even rare since I don't like detail(usually 9 cut in most rugs) and dark jewel colors are my go to wools.  I have joined various rug hooking 'groups' to meet and learn from other hookers. I love to talk about wool, dyeing and new patterns to add to my 'to hook' list, and there are many. I so appreciate the time these folks have put in to create such groups, for I would not have met some great friends like my buddy 'Karin', so for that I am grateful.

I hope to show everyone what I am currently working on from time to time with my most recent finished rug today.  Enjoy!!

Until next time, wish me luck on this new endeavor!


An adaptation of an antique rug...

I took this photo with my android phone, I think I will use my camera for the next photos because the true shades in this rug are not represented well.


  1. Hi Lisa, Good luck with your blog, I'm so proud to call you my friend!

    Your rug looks fantastic, I can't wait to see what you hook next.

    See you soon.

  2. Lisa ~
    Welcome!!! I say that from the bottom of my heart. I know you have so many wonderful rugs to share and I look forward to seeing them all.
    Does this mean we'll have dueling cameras the next time we meet at the library?

  5. hi Lisa,
    Good luck with your new adventure in blogland. I am so happy to be able to visit so many inspiring sites. I too live in Northeast ohio, but most of my friends are not into sewing or hooking. It is nice to have a way to meet people who can motivate my creative juices, so to speak. Love the rug. Can't wait to see your next one. Lisa

  7. Welcome Lisa! Any friend of Lauren's is a friend of mine! :-) I am so excited to see you love the primitive style of hooking! I am now hooked on nothing smaller than 8 and mostly larger! Hand torn strips are my newest love! I'll be checking for more of your work! Best of luck on your new blog!
