A long time ago
a friend and I
decided we needed to become hookers.
I know your mind drifted over to the
but in this case,
we're talking rug hookers.
We took a wonderful weekend class,
practiced the basics,
bought a neat kit,
upgraded tools and frame....
And then I came home.....
Basically, that was the beginning
and ending of my hooking career.
I love the textures, the designs,
and even the process,
but knew deep down I couldn't add another
art form to my already overloaded days.
I had meet a new online friend, Gayle,
Now she is a dedicated rug hooker and
does beautiful original pieces of art.
Well, we struck a deal and my
hooking supplies were added to
I know they live happily there.
A couple of weeks ago a
wonderful package arrived and it
was from Gayle.
This is what she had sent me.
A beautiful hooked table runner.
I truly couldn't believe it.
Gayle used a pattern from Norma Whaley
as her inspiration.
Then used her awesome talent
to create this wonderful folk art holiday runner.
Her kindness, generosity, creativity
have left me speechless.
Gayle, I might just be inspired to
look into hooking again....someday!
Until Next Time-
