Since this project was recently started I've not much to show, so it does classify as a sneak peek. And again, my enlargement size measures 14 x 19 and is from the free JACK pattern insert in the September/October 1997 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine. It was designed by Barb Carroll.
Another reason there isn't a whole lot accomplished is because of a little prep work for binding Westmoreland Ponies plus getting ready to make some rug labels for my rugs. So far I've only gathered the information for maybe 8 rugs and will start with those.
Early in my hooking figured the date and my initials hooked into the rug was documentation enough of a record for me. But after chatting with my friend Joan (a/k/a fishgirl) decided that I'd been remiss. Joan is so organized that she numbers, documents and makes labels for every one of her hooked rugs. Joan is one prolific hooker so I'd really like to know if she ever sleeps.
I've often wondered just how many rugs I've hooked and have been asked that question by people. My normal reply is, "a few dozen". Heck, I have over a dozen displayed in my home on the walls, floor, table top, chairs, chests, have sold some, given some away and have some which are rolled up and hoping for a sale one day. So think it is about time for me to start listing my rugs on a document. I take pictures of all my rugs but some pictures may have been on the disks and not transferred to a CD or flash drive so many pictures of hooked pieces are missing I'm sure.
Out of curiosity I would love to hear if you keep a record of your hooked rugs in both picture form and documented? In the event you don't wish to post a comment I have put a POLL at the top of the blog post for your convenience. The info will be interesting to me and am sure others will find the numbers interesting as well.
Thanks for dropping by.
