Locker Hooking saved DH's Ears!

This is my table. I just love it. I think it looks like a quilting pattern that I'd never attempt! DH is a good sport and didn't mind that my habit extended into the livingroom.
Don'tcha just love this patchwork lamp! Again DH didn't care that it was "quilty."

This is my latest locker hooking creation. I needed something to take on the airplane with me when we went to Las Vegas. I didn't want to schlep the big rug I'm working on so I whacked off a piece of mesh and started hooking. Everytime someone asked me what I was making, I'd just say , "this!" I had no idea what or where I would use this "busy work" project. When I finished the project, even DH wondered "what are you going to do with that?" I found the answer.....

DH has been pretty good about not using this table for his "junk." Lately though, I notice the MP3, the headphones, ect. Ahhhh! "Don't use that table!" I just don't want to dent and ding it. DH thought I was nuts! We had a table that I wouldn't let him use! Enter my locker hooking thingy! I realized that I had made a really big coaster! Now he can put stuff on there without worrying about my shreiking at him! Plus it looks cute. Locker Hooking saved my marriage....not to mention poor DH's tired ears!

What a fabulous table and lamp. I quite agree that you don't want stuff on there ruining it

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Ah hah!! the perfect solution. I also, if that table was mine, would NOT let anything touch the surface without pads of some kind -- a great mariner's compass!

And I see you are also a lover of baskets - there is TEXTURE here!

I have a hooking project that I need to get back out.
I "see" patchwork in a lot of things DH just doesn't get it either!
