Just before Christmas I taught my friend Wendo how to hook – in about 5 minutes she was pulling loops and by the end of the weekend she had finished hooking and putting together her Christmas tree. On Saturday Wendo came for a visit with her mom and brought along her beautiful Lily rug – all hooked in roving that she usually uses for her needlefelting. The rug is gorgeous – the colours are rich and there is a glint to them that is lovely. Wendo left with 2 yards of linen – is she hooked??? Wendo is planning on being a vendor and a teacher at the OHCG annual in May in Kingston and will have not only her needlefelting but also rughooking kits using roving for sale. If you have never hooked with roving this will be a wonderful opportunity to get a small kit and try it.


Close up so you can see that AFTER the hooking was done Wendo added needlefelted details – stamens on top of the hooking.HPIM4122

And what have I been up to – not much! Did finish a hooked hat for my cousin Helen but turns out I think her head may be too big for it (that is another way of saying I MADE IT TOO SMALL!). Hats are fun to hook but when you are sewing them together and lining them they do tend to shrink up a bit. Oh well, back to the drawing board (or hooking frame).

  3. Hello Loretta, Happy New Year to you. I have enjoyed your photos and updates as usual and your work as always is beautiful and inspireing. The santa rug is very slowly getting done between other small projects and dismantling christmas,just to put up snowmen for the season! I want to ask you if you are interested in 2 old windows, the kind you used for your stained glass projects. I thought your sister Betty might want to redo hers after her misfortune. They are all yours , i’ll keep them for you and sometime when i know i’ll see you i’ll pass them along or we can bring to Betty if interested , let me know. I hope your neck is on the mend! Cheers Leslie Koenig

  4. What a great idea…to needle felt on top!
    Does Wendo have a website?

  5. The lily rug is beautiful!

  6. Wendo, your rug is outstanding. The colours in the lily centres and your background green and blue complement. I’ve started budgeting for May’s Vendors’ Court!
