Lets see, how did I get started .....

I can’t remember what year I hooked my first rug. It’s been awhile. I do know it was a kit that I had purchased from a local craft store. After that I was literally “hooked” but I had no interest in the kits that the latch hook rug market had to offer. I mean they were ok but I lost interest in them quickly. The designs could not hold my attention. So, I started to design my own patterns using colored pencils and graph paper. I bought rug canvas and pre cut yarn. Sometimes I even cut my own yarn from skeins to get a certain look and feel. I love to run my fingers through my latch hooked rugs. It feels so good. Then, I wondered if anyone else would be interested in my designs. So here I am today testing the water.

Friends ask me how do you come up with these designs? Well I get my inspiration from everything around me. This may sound corny but it’s true. Remembering an old story that a friend told me about his grandmother, different sounds and smells from the changing seasons, a child’s smile while eating an ice cream cone, a written message in an old greeting card, a lazy cat basking in the winter sun and even from TV commercials! Yes TV commercials! I may not be able to tell you what the commercial was selling but I can show you how it made me feel using colorful yarn hooked onto a rug canvas.

They all leave me asking the same question. “How can I take that feeling it gives me and turn it into a latch hook rug?” You see my designs are the answer.

Now if you are looking for high tech modern designs then you won’t find them here. My designs are more like warm, gooey (mmmm) mac & cheese. My designs are meant to get a reaction or lets say evoke a feeling (a smile, a laugh, a tear) that only you will recognize. Some feelings you can share with others and some you just keep to yourself. I decided to share some of my feelings with you by way of my designs. I hope that they "touch" something in you too.

If it wasn’t for my husband constantly telling me “so just do it” and my 5 cats “paw prints of approval“ this shop would not exist today.

Well, thank you for taking the time to read this page. I hope I didn’t bore you too much. I’ll end this with my catch phrase, “Sooooo ….. come on in and look around but don’t forget to Wipe Your Feet!
