I need the simplicity of primitive design to lighten my life
everyday ... it's my resting place ... I find it
in the simplest of designs and in the quiet of
when I am pulling  strips of wool one at a time.
Won't you join me?

It seems to me that those of us who love handwork love all  kinds ...
Embroidery, appliqué, make-dos ~
Penny rugs are appliquéd circles ...

You have a rug hooking pal in Colorado!
Wouldn't it be fun if we could hook together today?

.... maybe a geometric/hexagon design like hooked
in this early rug appeals to you.

Here on wool street we don't need
cold weather to love our wool! The love
of rug hooking is year 'round!
Here is a great early rug ... pets and
farm animals were often included in 
early rugs! Just like they are today ...
The roses are such a nice touch! 
I wonder if this is a memorial rug for
some endearing pets. 
This rug measures 30" x 55" and was
hooked in 1880 in Pennsylvania.
