Home from Florida

Well, what can I say...Florida was great and was warm. It seems so unfair that one part of the country could be so warm when now that we're home it's in the teens. I have updated my web site and have added my new patterns. They are Animal House and My World.

"My World"- 51" x 34"

I  just finished hooking it. I added another row of dark wool all the way around because I thought it would bring it all together and it does help. It was a fun rug too hook, but probably the most challenging I've done because of all the backgrounds. I decided at the beginning I would just put in the colors of the motifs that I wanted and not worry about the background at all. If it was going to disappear I would outline it in dark or light like the old rugs. I think this picture might make it look at little brighter than it is, but you should see it in the sun. All those background colors are beautiful.

Well, I'm off to a great day of teaching. Hope yours is great too.

Getting Started - Waiting for Spring

This is an interesting day to launch my blog. We are experiencing a hugh winter storm/blizzard. The chances that you are in the same storm is probably pretty good.


"Don't knock the weather; nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a conversation if it didn't change once in a while"--Kim Hubbard, Indianapolis News 1905

Not sure what that quote says about me since I started this out by talking about the weather, but I know we are all ready for spring. I have added a picture of a rug I call  Terrie's Primitive Posies. Check out my website www.woolywoolen.com for more rug patterns. This has been hooked by several people and I hope to get the pictures published on my website soon.

Terrie's Primitive Posies

My hope is to blog often and let you know what is going on at Wooly Woolens. Take care and stay warm---Janice
