Rug Hooking Tutorial On Its Way

Hey girls...just a heads up that I will be closing my blog yard sale on Sunday evening at 7pm, so please get your orders in before then. If you are ordering wool and an item you wanted is marked SOLD, contact me because I might be able to put together another pack in the same colors, wools etc. I did do a pretty big batch of golds and pumpkins the other day, plus I have loads of other colors for those who have specific needs. If you need strips cut, let me know. Also, if you could please send your address in your initial email it would speed things up so I can calculate the shipping right away.

By the way, due to the overwhelming response to the wool sales and the many rug hooking questions I received, I will definately be selling more in the near future. I will also have the Rug Hooking Tutorials up by the end of the month. I would love to hear from those of you who are interested. If you could post a comment and let me know what experience you do have and how far along you are in being ready to hook it would be a great help to me so I know specific thinges you want to know. I plan to cover everything from selecting wool, to hooking to dying your own wool. I will have an emphasis on rug hooking the frugal way, since thats how I roll. I will try to keep it light hearted and EASY to understand. I am also thinking of offering a starter kit for sale that will include the pattern printed on monks cloth, rug binding tape and all the wool necessary to complete the project with your choice of color scheme so that you can follow along the actual piece I will be working on in the tutorial....what do you guys think ? Would that make it easier ?

Here's a picture of of the pattern I am thnking of using since it hooks up beautifully in several color schemes and has a variety of things to learn, like how to get a great point on a star ! It's a finished size of 12 x 12 and perfect for a first project.
I havent bound it yet, but I at least wanted to get your input at this point. I will be telling you all my tips and tricks that I have picked up through the years. So, what do y'all think ??? I REALLY wnat to hear your thoughts.

Grace to you,
