Introduction Hi! I am a 58 year old gal who fell in love with rug hooking when I lived in Maine about 10 years ago. At the time, I was making teeny,tiny hooked rugs for my dollhouses and while doing the research for them, I fell in love with the full size ones and started collecting them at area auctions and such. At the time, I lived in a FABULOUS Maine farmhouse which was built in 1795. The wood floors just begged for hooked rugs and I began taking classes and doing hooking on my own as well. I have two grown sons who are the joy of my life. Matt lives in Boston and Joshua lives in Florida. Matt is getting married in April to a great gal named Lauren and I am hoping for grandkids very soon,lol! I am engaged to a great guy named Peter and we have a good anyway, enough of that, I am off to do some needle felting and spent the evening listening to Bob Dylan's "Modern Times", one of my all time favourite CD's...take good care everyone and thanks for reading this... Warm hugs, Debbe
