January 21, It sends a shiver right through me.

Today I spent some time writing and hooking. This is my main job, my main activities at the studio. I gotta tell you this. While I was hooking I yelled. Ahhhh. Loud. And Angela and OPatricia came running. What happened? Well. You probably know what happened. It might have even happened to you.  I hooked the skin on my thumb, the thumb underneath the rug, and let me tell you it smarts. It is the tiniest of injuries but the most irritating. And for me it is like the old fingers on a chalkboard. It just sends a shiver right through me.

So now it is back to writing. As much as I like to hook vigorously....well you still gotta be careful not to hook your own thumb.

  • Ouch, hope it gets better quickly!
  • Ouch!! At least now I know it's not something I'm doing wrong. And it happens to the best.
  • Ouch!
  • I split the skin the last time I did that. Ouch!
  • That sounds painful! And as you say a reminder to take care because those digits are important! I have developed a wee calous in the centre of my right middle finger. Not really sure of the rug hooking motion that has created it but I feel as if it is a little badge of pride and am growing fond of it being a part of my life! ;)
  • My index finger is almost ragged now...so I tape with a bandage when I'm hooking. It really hurts...thanks for sharing, thought I was the only one that hurt myself. Love the Harbour, Deanne, thank you, thank you, thank you...I feel like I'm been a cocoon for the past 50 years and am finally opening up!! Stay warm and safe! Pamper that thumb <3
  • Oh my. I feel your pain and I’m not looking forward to when that happens to me. It’s nice to have writing to turn to one fingers are sore. That’s what I do.

I want to show you some little tips here on the Pom members site. Right now I am crazy about flower pots. These are very simple designs I am doing right now but it is their simplicity that is difficult to carry off. For this orange pot I used sexy jersey and highlighted it with rust slub. I wanted a clean looking pot with not too much colour . The pot cannot compete with the flowers in these rugs. The pot has a very simple shape. Lean and long, and only two colours mixed together. I think it…

Playful is best


Hey everyone, I have not had coffee or eaten my breakfast yet but I had an urge to visit with you here.  Right now I am so excited. It's thursday so we do our live which always gets me rolling. Last week I took a long walk on the marsh with friends and while there we began playing with our portrait mode on our iphones using the studio light mode and we got some fun results. I just wanted to show you what I discovered just by playing.…
