Finished


Here she is, finished! I learned a lot from my first piece, I'm already thinking of what to make next! I have a new hook for next piece that will make the hooking go a little easier.

Hi Melissa,
I had a rug hooking friend cut the strips for me. Thank you for your comments as always.

What a wonderful project and I just love the end result. This certainly isn't the hook rugging of the 70s! Your work just keeps getting stronger and stronger. Hope you are well and have a great summer!xoxoxoxopip
