A Hooking Accomplishment

We are in the deep freeze here in Michigan.
Actual temp this morning was -4

I wanted to show you my most recent finished rug.

Flowers in blue and tan.

Vase in red with a strip of fabric hooked in the ditch.
{hooked in between two other rows}

Corners hooked in the diagonal.
All four corners.

I spent a long time hooking this huge rug.

My goal was to finish by Christmas.
Finish I did!

This was my inspiration piece.
An antique rug I saw on Pinterest.
I chose colors that were more fitting for our room.

Proudly up on the wall.

Above our bed.
The large quilt rack below is our headboard. 

Early red hanging cabinet to the left.
I did not show the bed as I forgot to make the bed...
and the kitties took over.
Happens all of the time 
when the bed does not get made
right when we get out of bed.
They take over. LOL

On to the next project.

A smaller more manageable rug.
Would all my rug hooking friends let me know
where you purchase your linen?
The place I use to purchase mine, no longer carries it.

Can you guess what this will be?

This is what happens when I also leave my chair.
One or two kitties take over...
because I kept it warm for them. LOL
This is Shadow kitty.

Do you have anything you are working feverishly on?

Hooking Accomplishment Blessings To All!


  1. Stay warm! I remember those Michigan winters. We had -10 when I was a kid, late 1970’s.

  2. cold here in WI too. Your rug looks great! Good job finishing it. I have one....we won't say how long...I've been working on...LOL...I did finish a small one.

  3. What a great rug! You did an amazing job on this beauty...and you found the perfect spot to show her off!.Your bathroom...last post...looks just wonderful all dressed up for Christmas!
    No happy medium when it comes to the weather these days...last night I had to turn on my a.c.! Send me some cold for a couple of days!

  4. Your rug came out great!
    Did you get my email on where I buy my linen?
    Happy hooking :)

  5. Janice, your new rug turned out beautiful!! What a great job you did and I love how it looks next to that red cabinet. We lost our dear kitty on December 13 and I sure miss him grabbing my warm seat or curling up right in the middle of an unmade bed. Your sweet grey kitty is a beauty!!

  6. This is what I have wanted to do for some time
    I am going to set a goal to learn how to hook in 2018!!

  7. The rug is gorgeous; I love the colors. You are so talented. Your cats sound like mine. I think they are looking for a "pre-warmed" place to sit or nap! All the best to you this weekend and in the new year. xo

  8. I very much like your pattern it's beautiful,thank for sharing good i dea !
