At the used book store I manage we get all kinds of things in.
This magazine came in with some books that were dropped off.

And this is what I found, it is a pretty extensive article on rug hooking
by Pat Hornafus. It has lots of natural dying instructions among how to hook and finish this rug.
I am posting a picture of the pattern I think since it has been in a magazine it is
ok to post for someone else to use. (If I am wrong please let me know)
36X26. She talks about using burlap backing I know I was using monks cloth in the 90's.
My first rug I ever hooked was on burlap which I hated the feel of.
Well finally spring has come to New Hampshire. we still have snow cover in our yard

to see it go.
I have noticed that each year I post less and less so will this blog just fade away?
I still love to blog, I am just so dang boring. I can only post so many pictures of
Miss B before everyone says enough already!
A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.
