Rug Hooking thru Unemployment

Welcome! I started this site to mark the progress on I rug I started when I was laid off from my job, (Yikes!) in October. It is to be my largest rug yet, estimated to measure 8' x 10' when it's completed. While I spend a great deal of my day searching for employment, I also spend time working on this rug. It has become a great source of joy and creativity. I hope to have found a job by the time I finish the rug. I will put updates to show my progress and also post some of my other pieces.

This brightly colored rug depicts whimsical animals and flowers. I call it "Fab Flowers and Friends." There’s a pig, a dog, a cat, tulips and more!

My designs are modern but they also contain traditional rug hooking techniques. The multi-colored background of this rug is hooked in a design called "Hit or Miss". This technique was often utilized by rug hookers that were using up scraps from previously hooked rugs.

Rug measures 4’ 5” x 2’ 3".
