Design Wall

I've really been working on ...well, everything! I have this locker hooking rug that is over a year old. I began this rug as a demo for our quilting group. I originally started the pattern with one thing in mind, and then decided that I didn't like it. I changed my idea to just blocks of color. I don't particularly care for the finished product but it will be just fine in my classroom at school. I can't wait to see if it's durable.

I made it totally out of T-shirts, It is a great recycle project! The bits of color among each block are the logos, pictures and wording on the T-shirts.

I am allllmost done. The problem is that I am unable to work on it for more then a few minutes at a time.

I have some serious shoulder issues that really, really flare when I work on this rug. I am determined to finish it so I do it in small bits. I find it very upsetting that I cannot locker hook any longer. Luckily I have this and this and this to enjoy. Unfortunately, I also have tons of supplies to do more rugs!!

It's so much fun to pop over to Judy's blog and see what all the bloggers are working on this week!!

I've always been interested in locker hooking. I actually bought a few supplies last year but never got around to trying it out. I'm glad you warned us about it bothering your shoulder. I have shoulder and neck issues so I think I will hold off a bit before trying locker hooking.

I love the modern art look to your rug and ... using t-shirts is a BRILLIANT idea!

wow! I swear I'm going to take up making rugs too - very cool - love the abstract design!

Love your rug. I started one but after I got into it a little way I couldn't figure out how to hold it and work the hook. So it is a UFO that probably won't be finished.

Mine is a UFO too! I love yours and I'm inspired to get mine out and work on it again!
