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.

Ugly jacket/Beautiful wool!!

I found this fab lime green 100% wool jacket at the Haverhill Salvation Army Store. Can you believe that it was donated direcetly from a still had the original price tag on it!!? It may be an ugly jacket but cut up it will be beautiful in my rug! I hooked some and it's perfect!

  1. Personally, I would wear the jacket if it fit because that is one of my favorite colors. But hey, the sleeves were too short any way.
