Sewing Room Find

I was going to title this post "I used to be a hooker" but was afraid that would either get me shut down or attract the kind of notice I don't really want. Lately I have been cleaning out my sewing room and selling patterns on Ebay. As I was doing this I came across the last rug I hooked.
 
It was like finding an old friend. I would probably do the tongues differently if I was hooking this today, but I still like the colors and the design. It has been rolled up and tucked away for so long I'd forgotten about it. I don't mind doing the binding part so I'm not sure why I never got around to doing it. I think the local yarn store where we used to buy the yarn for finishing rugs has closed so I'll have to find another source for that. If you know of a good online source please let me know!  Hope you had some good surprises too this weekend!

In this case you should be proud to say, "I use to be a hooker!" It's very pretty!

I remember it! It's lovely. If you ever come to Lawrence, visit Yarn Barn downtown. I buy my binding yarn there. They have a huge selection of wool yarn in solid colors, variegated and tweed-looking. I can always find something there. They have a web site but it nice to take the rug in there and look at the yarn next to the rug. There is also a good yarn store in Olathe - Knit Wit. ~Amy
