Rainy days are perfect for Rug Hooking !

It is pouring here today. A perfect day to bake some cookies & do some rug hooking !  A few weeks ago Saundra from Woodland Junction challenged anyone to hook a circle rug. I have been wanting to make one , so I joined the fun ! It is taken me a little while , but I am getting there. I am trying to decide what color background to use, should it be dark or light ??? I want to use it on my coffee table , I know it may get spilled on, so maybe I should make it neutral shades ??? Then I also need to decide what to do for my border......decisions, decisions !

   Hopefully April showers will bring may Flowers & Warm ,Sunny Days !!!!!


  1. Oh I agree, great hooking day while it rains. Love your work, Francine.

  2. Lovin' your circle rug! I vote for a dark background, but that's what I almost always go with.
    Happy hooking :)

  3. Looking good! At first I was also undecided on what color background but went with the dark. You're inspiring me to pull a few more loops on my penny rug now, but am having so much fun hooking on the cat rug.


  4. Hi NMK, thanks for your comment on my blog. I appreciate your visit and comment.
    Your circles looks great. Hooking circle is such fun... I'd go with a dark background also.

  5. I love your rug, I just got out some burlap to make one of this yesterday.
    Your rug is so pretty. Very nice hooking too.
