Rug Hooking with a hookand strips of wool cloth or with a punch needle and strips of wool yarn, classic, primitive or modern designs become works of art.  Practical or decorative, rug hooking, which began in the United States in the early 1800s as a means of covering floors for the very practical purpose of keeping warm, also evolved into a decorative art with wide interpretations of common and not so common themes.

I'll finish the edges - someday!

 This was my first try with hook and yarn, adding the bird, bunny, butterfly, bumble bee, pig and small flowers as I worked out from the central flower.

I finally finished this.  Next time, if ever, I'll

use much heavier yarn so it will go faster.  Pretty though.
