This is the most fun I've ever had hooking (insert hooker joke.)

I just wish I had more time to do it.

Like I always say, having to work for a living and raising kids really gets in the way of having a life.

How right you are. How great would it be if you could only hook for a living? (sorry, couldn't resist)

It looks amazing.

Holy cow. You should have that done by next weekend. The colors are so pretty.

HOLY! I friggin' LOVE that! Ok, that's it. I need to find a beginners rug to make and eventually I have to make that rug for myself. The colors are great.
I'm turning green with envy here.

Hey Netter... this kit is at under the Mary Doig kits. And check out a seller called "nfld55" on ebay. She has really great kits that are usually "buy now." She has the best prices for kits I've ever seen, and she doesn't rip you on the shipping, either. And her sister is Deanne Fitzpatrick, who's a big shot hooked rug designer in Nova Scotia, just 45 minutes away from here.

DH~ Thanks, I just wrote down that info and I'm going to look into getting myself a kit once Christmas is over with. I have to be good right now and only buy for other people. Grrr...I hate it when I can't be selfish.

Definitely check out the lady on ebay. Her kits would seriously cost about twice as much anywhere else.

Nfld55 is Deanne Fitzpatrick's sister?

Yes! I was actually working on one of her kits, which had her name, Sharon Perry, on it, when I was reading a rug hooking book by DF. There was a picture of a rug of her Dad that she said was now in the home of her sister Sharon Perry in Massachusetts. And I noticed that she has a note on her ebay stuff right now that she's visiting her sister DF in Nova Scotia for some big rug hooking thing.

That's pretty cool. Imagine the rugs those two have in their homes. I wonder when they learned to hook.

I've been AWOL from blogland for a while, but I'm trying to catch up. Love your new hobby, which reminds me of a book--Katherine Valentine's "The Haunted Rectory"--it's about 'hookers' and a ghost. Fluffy fiction but the scene in the minivan is priceless.
