Good CHILLY morning
Friends & Folk!!
Peter lit the wood stove in the old farmhouse this morning to take the chill out….
I love waking to the smells of woodsmoke and fresh coffee ~
so comforting :)
I wanted to share with you
two books that I can't put down lately…
and Miss Joan,
if you're reading this ~
yours are on the way :)
The first book is
Wide Cut Primitive
~ by Wendy Miller & Rug Hooking Magazine (2104)
I am super-impressed with Wendy's ability in how she makes us (the reader)
feel like she's right there with us, guiding us along….
|Wendy Miller is also the talented designer behind |
The Red Saltbox
there is such a naive, childlike quality to her designs ~
her rugs are whimsical and full of movement and color…
I know you will enjoy this book as much as I am!
|simple, straightforward techniques from Wendy~|
perfect for the beginner rug hooker and experienced!

The second book I've been
drooling over reading is this:
Creating an Antique Look
in Hand-Hooked Rugs
by Cynthia Norwood and Rug Hooking Magazine (2008)
it is so well written
and covers a variety of techniques used to replicate those old rugs we love
so very much…
wonderful photographs of antique and reproduction rugs ~
both of these fabulous books are
|'where's my hook?' ~ Ig|
have a wonderful day filled with creativity!!
* Blessed be *
