My Mom is very creative and crafty. She can sew, paint, cross-stitch, cook, bake, decorate...etc. Her latest craft is to hook rugs. Rug hooking is very big in her area and really is a neat form of art. She gets wool from thrift stores. This can be from scrap material, or articles of clothing. Then she cuts the wool into little strips and pokes them through a piece of burlap. She has already done several of her own designs and this one here you can see is inspired by my pumpkin painting. She is also working on a rug to go in my entryway....it will have colorful squares all over it- I cannot wait- it looks like it will be beautiful.
Here she is, working on "the squares" rug.
