Rug Hooking is another favorite hobby of mine.  I have been rug hooking for over 20 years and always find new ways to challenge myself.

The basic technique is to hold a thin strip of wool on the back side of a piece of coarsely woven fabric, like burlap or cotton, and draw small loops of the woolen strip through the openings of the weave using a hand held hooking tool. Nice even loops are the mark of a rug hooker's skill. 

One of my favorite projects is a stool course I took from Cindy Gay. These are pictures of the finished stool.
