Latch hooking...

As you may remember I said I was going to do lots of different crafts but mainly use kits that I've already got or started.

Well here is another old project, I bought this latch hook cushion and the matching rug years ago, for my conservatory.



Well did get the rug made, but then couldn't get any binding for the edges, so it got put at the back of the cupboard and wasn't in any hurry to finish the cushion because of that.



But the other week when mum and I went for a mooch round Chichester we popped into the haberdashery there and managed to get some binding, so hopefully have bought enough to finish all the latch hook projects.




I've also got a Eeyore rug that Sam had started years ago and I've got a Christmas one, so as I say 'it should keep me out of trouble', lol...



So watch this space to see if any of them get finished, hehehe...

Wow Maria - that's a real blast from the past for me. I haven't done a rug since I was about ten years old - and that wasn't yesterday or the day before LOL!!!

Well done on your mission to finish - I think I should join you ;-)

Hi Maria,
It's years since I did any latch-hooking.
My nan always had one on the go, I don't ever remember any of them getting finished though!
The last one I made was for DD's room when she was little.
Good luck with getting them done?
How many baths now?

5 baths now, as had 2 this week, 'YES TWO' while I was staying in Bath, hehehe...xx
