My "Hooking" Project aka Yes, I Am A Hooker!

It's still winter here at Applejack Lane. Several years ago, my husband gave me "hooking" lessons for Christmas, and I was able to complete several projects. Among the things I made was a rug.  I don't put it on the floor.  Instead I use it on the dining room table or place it on the step of our raised hearth.  Murphy the cat enjoys lying on it!.
With this...

and this...

you can get this...

Thanks for visiting Applejack Lane.  Come again!.

I am linking to Smiling Sally for more Blue Monday and Between Naps on the Porch for Metamorphosis Monday..

You are blessed to be able to create something so beautiful, I love it, I don't think I would use it as a rug either, if I was able to do that kind of work I would hang it on the wall so I could look at it everyday.

Being a "hooker" has never looked so good! I love snowmen and the colors are wonderful. Great job!

I've always wanted to be a hooker, too! My Mama know how, maybe she'll teach me. Ha!!

Your hooked rug is truly pretty. I don't blame you for not putting it on the floor.

You are a very good hooker. It turned out so cute. Great job. I was a hooker before but mine was the kind that had the ends of yarn showing on top.
