Thank you all for your wise comments regarding whether I should take on a rug hooking project. I have weighed all the advice and decided to...first tell you about finishing my little project from class. Here it is in all it's 6 inch square glory.
It is supposed to be primitive and indeed it is. I actually did enjoy hooking while watching TV the last couple nights. It was a little hard to focus during "24" as the US was about to be destroyed by terrorists, but I managed. So I think I do like rug hooking. However, I have decided not to order the kit I blogged about last time. I went ahead and ordered the finished rug instead.
Here are my favorite two comments (straight and to the point, that's how I am!) from bloggers that swayed my decision:
1. "My advice...buy the rug. Forget the kit."
2. "Hey, forgo the guilt of yet another unfinished project and order the one that's already done. You can start enjoying it immediately!"
Once I finish quilting three tops I have to do and check off some of my spring chores, I may order a small, simple, beginner's kit from Annie Hayes rugs. I like the star mat for the patriotic holidays coming up or the heart mat, which I could probably finish in time for next valentines day..
