Well I haven't been doing quite as much quilting as usual :) I've been rug hooking again. I really love doing this stuff. I love the whole process of it. This was a kit that I had purchased quite some time ago and am now finally getting around to. I didn't list this as a UFO because I hadn't started it yet. I wonder what you would call a kit that you have had for a while but not started. UFK maybe (unfinished kit)? Anyways, this is just a small project that I may turn into a pillow of I may leave it as a small table topper.
Our local opportunity shop was having a half price sale so I went in and cleaned them out of 100% wool jackets. I think that the men's jackets are the best that I've seen so far but I am a newbie at finding wool.
I ordered a rug hooking gripper frame from Bee Creek Ltd which should be here in April. I can't do anything larger than about 14" in my Q-Snap frame so any larger project really does require a better set up. I love rug hooking enough so I thought that a frame would be a good investment. Next I just need to find a reasonably priced cutter.
Speaking of thrift store finds, This is a complete rug hooking kit that I found at my local opportunity shop for only $5.00!! Regular price on it is $65.00 USD! Someone had already started it and I guess they decided that they didn't like it. It's for a half-circle house and flowers and it contains all of the wool strips needed. It also had a hook in it too. It was a different hook from what I have so I was happy with that find as well. Actually, as another second hand find, I got another hook for $0.25. Considering that the hooks cost at least $8.00 new I'm pretty happy to find them :)
Sorry this wasn't a quilting post but at least it is textile related :) Do any of you rug hook as well?
