Two deer and a tree

Here's my latest rug in process... came out of a doodle in a boring meeting.

The colours aren't quite true - the beiges, rust and green are warmer. Mostly hand-cut and torn, 100% wool on burlap.

Cindi Gay's new guide to rug hooking on the internet

Cindi Gay is a beautiful rughooker - well, I've never met her but her hand hooked rugs are beautiful and she acts like a beautiful person; ergo... 


One of my absolute favourite rugs ever is her Village of Pemberville (an historic town in Ohio where she lives... the love shines through). She teaches, dyes, sells wool, patterns, etc, blogs and hooks and most recently started a new website to share other rughooking websites and blogs. She calls it "Your guide to rug hooking on the internet" and was kind enough to ask to post this blog on her new site. 


So, if you have a rughooking site, please contact Cindi, who says:


Do you have a rug hooking website you want to get noticed? 
For a limited time, get your site added to this listing for no cost.   


If you are not familiar with Cindi's gorgeous rugs, visit (more on Cindi's rugs, below, including her ongoing blog topic of a really big rug she's been working on for a few years).

Cindi says, "I started my website in 2001 with beginners in mind. Since I had just started hooking, I was very aware about how hard it was to find information.

"My current project (and probably for the next few years) is a room sized rug. I started posting about the rug from the first day, October 1, 2007. Read the articles to follow along as I put the pattern on the backing, start hooking and then struggle with the borders as I design them as I go.
"The website includes an online store where you can purchase wool, red dot, my patterns and other rug hooking supplies."
