Nature and wisdom never are at strife. The art of being wise is knowing what to overlook.

Wisdom is better than gold or silver.

The great lesson is that the sacred is in the ordinary, that it is to be found in one’s daily life, in one’s neighbors, friends and family, in one’s backyard.

Years teach us more than books.

The only medicine for suffering, crime, and all the other woes of mankind, is wisdom.

You have to expect the unexpected. My everyday life journeys were punctuated with the off-the-wall personalities of people they turned any normal situation into something ridiculous..

What normal situations have you experienced!

For this project you will need:

  • a heavy duty (or regular doubled) matching color of thread & needle

  • scissors

  • thimble

  • Take your canvas and cut so that you have 2-3 rows of squares left around the edge of the rug. (and sorry for the not so great pics – my camera took a trip to everything is too freaking Blueville and I’ve had a hard time trying to fix them!)

  • Fold the canvas over and begin stitching on a diagonal hooking the bit of canvas underneath to the folded over bit on the top.

  • This is what it looks like a bit closer up… It’s easier to work in lengths of string that are about 1.5 feet, knotting off and starting up again.

  • Yay! Here’s one side done – but now what do we do with those pesky corners?

  • Cut a square out of the corner and…

  • Fold over the other edge and tack down really well. Continue stitching and attaching your canvas down for the rest of the rug.

  • Now when I asked around a lot of people actually finish their rugs by sewing a piece of felt onto the backside. I chose not to do this because felt is a fur magnet and I have a whole mess of cats. Can you say the underside of your rug is grody? But this canvas stuff is wicked slippery so I bought some non-skid rug padding.

  • I trimmed it to size and went ahead and tacked it down with spray adhesive. It’s going to keep it in place for now, but over time it’ll come off so no worries when it’s time to wash it… it will peel right off.

  • So, will you be making your own latch hook rug?

  • Did you have fun? Do you still have the rug you made?

  • Is it displayed in your home right now?
