I'm going in....

Morning, friends and fellow hookers. I have had this rug on my list to hook for a long time. I mustered a bit of nerve and yesterday pulled some loops.

This is Karen Kahle's "Flowerbox"...the large one.

It's a big one!

Very big! 52x40 big!

I plan on doing a little bit every day. Wish me luck! I'll post my progress.


If you have been here before, you know I come from a long line of "never throw anything outers".

This is Annie in one of her favorite tees. I bought this shirt on a trip to 1993. It was more like a nightgown on her when I brought it home, but became a favorite right then and there. She grew into's still a big favorite.

Gotta go pull some loops!

Enjoy the day,


  1. love the rug! Karen's designs are just beautiful ~ I'm sure you'll enjoy every loop you pull! hugs to you & sweet Annie

  2. Nice big project that beautiful pattern. It kinds of reminds me of the last rug I designed and hooked for a challenge of using mostly spare worms. I had little houses going around and trees in the corners. It was a fun rug to do.

    Sweet Annie looks beautiful in that red t-shirt. It still looks like new.... I love teddy Bears too.

    Good luck with pulling hoops every day.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. That is a lovely rug and I love Annie's shirt. I think that is wonderful. I am sure you will enjoy hooking that rug. I like big rugs best. :)

  4. Loved the start on it!
    Gonna be wonderful.
    Bless her heart!
    What a cute smile!

  5. Great start to your rug. Tell Annie I have a sweatshirt from the 90's and I still love it! Janice

  6. Yea!I love that rug too. Annie looks very happy in her t shirt with easter eggs.

  7. Hi Robyn,
    Good for you to challenge yourself and "jump right in" with a big project!! I feel like that with my big penny rug, too!! The start looks lovely and will be so amazing when you get it all hooked!!
    Love Annie's sweet bear shirt and it still looks new!! The best part's RED!!!
    Hope you both have a wonderful weekend!
    Heart Hugs~

  8. That is a BIG rug for sure! I'm sure you will do a wonderful job hooking it. Please keep us posted.
    Annie looks so happy. Love that smile :)

  9. Love it so far...and love that egg coloring box that Annie has. Looking forward to seeing your progress.

  10. That is a big rug! I'm looking forward to watching your progress. Good on you for not throwing things out! We are that way too -- but I think we are too extreme. More like pack rats. lol!

  11. I've always loved this rug pattern of Karen's. I look forward to seeing it as you progress! Great choice!

  12. I hooked the smaller version of Flowerbox, yours is big. It will be beautiful when done. I have my favorite tee shirts too and some may be older than hers.

    Also love that blue polka dot bird

  13. That pattern looks wonderful and challenging. I dragged out some wool, cut some strips and tried getting back into it but I became frustrated quickly. So I set is aside-it is still on my table, mocking me but I will try again on a different day. Maybe :D

  14. Oh MY, that is a big rug! But it looks like a very fun one to hook! A magical journey to watch!
