Yes, Day 2491. Completing a room sized hooked rug is a huge undertaking and I haven’t hooked on this rug in years. My teaching schedule became very heavy and my personal hooking suffered. I decided to cut back on my teaching schedule to make life simpler.
Then last year, just as I was finishing out some of my teaching commitments, we bought a farm house in the country. I had no plans to move but my husband found the perfect location. The house needed a complete remodel and we’ve been working on it for about a year. The best feature will be the rug hooking studio on the first floor! No more lugging wool up and down the stairs. You can see our remodeling progress at justneedsalittlework.com. We put Main St. on the market last week and part of clearing out the “stuff” included moving this large rug to the new house. Rather than simply stashing it away – I won’t have time to hook on it for a while – I decided to spread it out on the newly laid floor in one of the rooms.
I think I will leave it here until I need to move something else into this room. I still love it even though I started it in October 2007.
