Slow progress with my rug.. and another give away!!


I had an eventful week last week (friends visiting from out of town, a trip to the mountains, spending time with my baby nephew, etc.)... which is why I haven't made much progress on my rug since my last post. I am determined to get much more accomplished this week! In the mean time, let's do another give away! Comment on this post by next Monday and we will put your name in a hat and draw a winner. We will give one lucky winner a free pattern!
Have a great week :)

Rug progress!!



This is a little better, isn't it? haha. My problem at first was the wool strip twisting as it came up through. Jeni was able to show me how to pull the strip through correctly :) I still get twists, but now I am able to manipulate and untwist as I pull it back down. This is becoming more enjoyable now that I'm filling in! It's actually starting to look like something! Yay :)

Learning to hook! (And a giveaway!)






Hi,

I'm Leah! I'm the office manager for Primitive Quilts and Projects Magazine. I thought maybe I should learn how to make this kind of stuff, since I'm supporting all of you wonderful primitive lovers :) So I'm starting with a Woolen Willow hooked rug, called "Crow." I thought I would be able to You Tube "how to rug hook," and this is what I came up with... YIKES!!! So I am about to get a professional lesson from my awesome aunts, Gretchen and Jeni :) I will keep you posted with my progress!

Also, we are overdue for a giveaway! Anyone who comments between now and next Monday... we'll throw your name in a hat and draw a winner! The winner will receive a pattern for a quilt or wool applique!
