Okay, enough business! The Featured Rug of the Month at Little House Rugs for December is the inspiring story of Jonnie Rogers, a stroke survivor who found that she could still hook rugs for her grandkids.

The winner of the Good Dog rug this year was Denise Halloran of Olympia, WA. Congratulations!
I bet you’d like to know which rug we’ll be giving away for 2017…
Ta dah! It is the Whale Rug, which I hooked from our own Jacob wool. It is hemmed with a casing on top, so it can be hung on the wall. It is a $450 value! For every $50 you spend with Little House Rugs between 1-1-2017 and 11-25-2017 you will be entered (so if you spend $100, you will be entered twice, etc.)
I often hear from my customers and students that it’s difficult to get information, instruction and inspiration about hooking with yarn. Some areas don’t even have a decent yarn store, let alone a store that specializes in rug hooking. Wouldn’t it be nice if hooking rugs with yarn was given more attention by Rug Hooking Magazine? How great would it be if RHM had an article on yarn in every issue, instead of once a year (or less)? And maybe we would see more yarn-hooked rugs in the Celebration books if they had a judge that specialized in yarn hooking? If you agree, why not send them an email? Go to http://www.rughookingmagazine.com/ and scroll down to the bottom of the page to the Contact Us link. Just sayin’.
Happy hooking everyone, and a very happy and peaceful new year!
