Featured Rug of the Month March 2018
Sheep Whimsy Pillow (dimensions?)
Designed by Judy Taylor and Vee Cowell
Hooked by Vee Cowell
I just completed my first project ever, a beginner's kit I purchased from you. Had a great time figuring out how to hook, and learned a lot by doing. I was surprised it came out pretty well - as long as you don't turn it over, lol. Along the way, I managed to clean up my act!
Not being a very "crafty" person, I was searching for a project that would be interesting as well as doable for a beginner. It also needed to be something I could make my own by using colors I love and personalizing the piece. I live in a rural area, so a craft that needed extensive lessons to start, expensive tools, or hard to find raw materials was impractical.
I found just what I was looking for when I found Judy's rug hooking site! I was immediately excited and ordered one of the beginner's kits, a whimsical sheep pattern, with the yarn included.
I really loved the whole process of making that first piece, and freestyling an outer border to enlarge it. I put a fabric backing on to make a pillow.
Rug hooking with yarn is great - versatile, easy to learn, colorful, and creative! I love it.
Thanks, Judy, for introducing me to this wonderful craft.
Thanks, and I am enjoying your blog!
