A Quilter can love wool 2! Primitive Rug Hooking Group

This is my first attempt at blogging, so it should get better. For years, I've called myself a Nike quilter 'cause I just do it. Sometimes better than others, and let's face it, my quilts are better viewed at a distance. But I do know after 35 years as a teacher, that practice makes progress even when it doesn't make perfect.

Lately (for the last year or so) I've switched over to Rug Hooking with my crafting time. I can budget my time by allotting myself so many worms before the rest of my homework has to be done. Like, I can hook 4 worms, and then back to paper grading! Papers are like laundry or the dishes, no matter how many are finished, there are more to replace them. PRHG is an ebay group that is simply the greatest thing going. I also belong to another group of dear hearts CPLG which stands for Country and Primitive Ladies Group. Both of these groups of ladies I'll probably never be in the same room with are dear friends. Perhaps I too am better view at a distance.

Hope you'll be patient, it may be weeks before I think to blog again. Like anyone but me will be reading this! Cotton Eyed Jo
