Rug hooking

I apologize that it has been so long since I last posted.  Work tends to supersede my crafting. However, today was an important day.  Jenny at The Bronze Wombat and I went to the textile museum along with our friend Chinburd.  We mainly went to see the prints of famous artists like Salvador Dali and Andy Worhol, but we came across the Canadian Rug Hooking exhibit.

We took some photos, but Chinburd took some rather interesting 'Action shots' of us figuring out how this whole rug hooking thing works.  It's really not difficult at all to do....just super time consuming.

It makes me tempted to chop all my quilting scraps into 1/8 inch strips, get some burlap, and start experimenting.

This is one of my favorite pictures because it shows what we were working on.  The blue row at the bottom is what I was working on, and Jenny was working on the next row up with green.

This is not to be confused with Latch hooking, which is a craft I learned how to do way back in grade school (I think I was in grade 6 or 7 when I learned latch hooking).  A link on how to latch hook through Wikihow can be found by clicking here.

for Rug hooking, a very good demonstrational tutorial can be found by following this link to youtube.
