I am a rug hooker and teach rug hooking classes in my home as well as at camps and workshops around the country. I live in Overland Park, KS. I love using lots of plaids, textures and antique paisley in my rugs and hook mostly in wide cut (#6-9). I received my McGown certification in 2001. I love to share my knowledge and passion for hooked rugs with my students.
Only a few more days until the hook-in. Today was a busy day as I tried to make room in my garage to stage the stuff going to the hook-in. Success! Most of it made it to the garage and is waiting to load up. My Pathfinder has been at the Dealer for 13 days waiting to finally get my fuel sensor issue solved---they finally had to replace the whole fuel tank---fortunately I had an extended warranty which covered it and the car rental. I was worried I wasn't going to get in back in time o transport all my stuff to the hook-in but lo and behold the tank came in today and my car is back in the driveway.
My bags are packed, I'm ready to go---just have about three more loads to wash and fold.
Here are some of my favorite coffee mugs.
It's time to celebrate!!! Cheers everyone! Bogle Zinfandel is one of our favorite red wines.
The final shot for today is a wall in my Powder room---I collect old punched paper samplers---this photo shows a couple of them with some hooked pieces.
