First Project

I thought I would share a picture of my first rug hooking project. This is a 10 x 10 hot pad done in wool yarn. I used a whipped cord finish and the back is green felt. I used glue to secure the backing, but I don't think I will use this method again. I will spend the time sewing on the backing as I think that might be the best approach.

While Corner Brook is all a-buzz with the EMCAs this weekend. Anyone that knows me, also knows that East Coast music is not my cup of tea. The lack of good radio and music has led me to a variety of alternatives such as XM satelitte and internet radio. I am not a snob when it comes to music but I like a lot more variety in my choices than the locale has to offer right now.

Have a great weekend!


  1. Julie, congratulations on finishing your first rug-hooked piece! I know how good that feels! It looks beautiful! I came upon your blog via Wendie's blog The Rugged Moose--I was taken with that fabulous view you have down there. I've been hooking for just over three years. I look forward to seeing what you decide to hook next.
