Finally things have slowed down enough for me to get back into the grove of hooking again. I chose a reproduction of an antique rug hooked by Nancy Shippey. This rug is 160 years old, wow! Mine will be about 36" x 60". This will be my most challenging rug yet not because of it's size but the color planning. I hook with a great group of girls and sure they will give me a hand when needed. I will post my progress. In the meantime, enjoy some rugs from my hooking buddies from last Wed. at Porter Library.

|Another wonderful hooked piece, forgive me but she seldom hooks when I am there and her name has left me. My apologies.|
|Mitsuko just finished hooking this beautiful rug in shades of green. I do know this is an adaptation of an antique rug. |
She has yet to bind it.
