Rug Hooking

I am thankful that old man winter is dying down but it’s still cold enough in the mornings to build a fire and enjoy a cup of chocolate mint tea before working on the computer at my home-based business “Camelia’s Unique Creations”. This is one of my favorite fireside chairs. Probably because I gave this chair lots of TLC and rescued it. I purchased it for $5 from an uncovered and weathered porch of a knit shop. I refurbished it, refinished it, recaned it (similar to basket weaving on the chair’s seat) and made a rug hooking cover for it. I designed the fall landscape scene for the chair seat from one of my favorite covered bridge in Giles County, Virginia “Clover Hollow Covered Bridge” built in 1916. Someday, I will publish this rug hooking pattern as well as create and publish a quilt pattern.
