Thank you for visiting my blog site. I own The Rug Hooking Store at Black Horse Antiques in Valley Nebraska. I have had the antique store for the last 31 years and the rug hooking portion of the store for the last 12 years. I specialize in hand-dyed wool and all supplies needed for rug hooking. There are over 750 patterns available in the store and online. I particularly love color planning rugs and will be happy to help you select wools for your latest project.

Lady Liberty celebrates the 4th of July at The Rug Hooking Store. This pattern is from Ann Nichols, and was quick and fun to hook. I love using up leftover noodles and this pattern was a great opportunity to dip into the noodles bin. The red, white and blue where random combinations of similar values. The background was particularly fun to do. I pulled taupe, tan and grey noodles to use for the background, then alternately worked in 2-3 loops of red or blue to make the background more interesting. Lady Liberty stays up year round at the store, she is one of my favorite little projects.
