Now that I have my sewing room back, I have the space to start working on my hooked rug again. I don't have much left to do.
The problem is that it won't fit in the quilting hoop anymore. I tried tacking it to a frame so I could get into the corner.
In theory this should work but it kept popping off. Even when it stayed on it was awkward.
I broke a lot of tacks.
Even though I am ridiculously broke at the moment I went and ordered a bona fide rug hooking frame-a small one as they are very
expensive. This is its official ebay
So is this. It's not here yet but I'm looking forward to it so I can get the monstrosity finished. I've got better plans for the next one.
The rug will b e very attractive! I have a hooked rug languishing in a bin....with a ton of wool fabric. And a lap frame. And a cutter. I go all out when I get into a craft!ReplyDelete
Yes rug hooking is an expensive art form. So worthwhile. I love your little rug. Cheerful and sweet. You should make cookies with the cookie cutters you used and eat them in it's honor when it is done.ReplyDelete
