Any rug hookers on the forum?
Have you created Goldens? Would love to see them...

Haha..I just have to say that I'm glad your post wasn't what I was thinking. Did we go from a GRF site to another type of site???

Sorry I'm not a 'hooker'. Don't have the talent for it.

:D

A dear friend of mine is a fiber artist...her rugs are gorgeous! She sells them in fine art galleries. But I cant afford to commission her for a piece! LOL!!!
So thinking of trying to learn for myself! :)

Maybe you can barter with her. If it was me and a friend of mine couldn't afford something I had, I would barter with her. I'm sure there is something that you can do for her in exchange.

Her non-commissioned pieces average 1500.00...
What I might be able to do is barter with her for lessons! ;-) <thanks!>

Heehee<:

I'm heading out the door to dog class but had to snoop when I saw this.... :)

I haven't hooked any rugs in a long time (I was a LOT more crafty when I was a teenager), but I've always wanted to try my hand at doing an original (from scratch) pic but with hooked rugs. If you stitch or sketch, I don't think it would be that much different. Right? I think I would do the outlines first and fill in between.

I used to come up with pic designs with knitting quilts. One quilt I did had everything that "meant" something to me when I was a teenager. Like each big square was a pic - so a Red Wings logo design, goldens, birds, dragonflies, butterflies... cats....other stuff. I gave it to my mom and have NO IDEA where she's storing it. :)

*** I love the style of rugs on this site<;
