Hooked on Needles

Have you ever made a rug?

Latch hooking is something I've done a few times, and making a braided rug is something I've always wanted to try but never have. But real honest-to-goodness rug making is something I know I'll never do. And I'm ok with that!

Up until a few years ago, we had no wood floors in our home so I did not need area rugs, but we finally had beautiful real hard wood floors installed in the front half of the first floor. I have purchased a few small rugs since then and have not been too pleased with the selection at stores close to me. Recently I was contacted by someone from CSN Rugs offering my choice of an area rug to receive in my own home and review on my website. I was a little hesitant at first since I really do try to restrict my content to needlework related topics that are somewhat educational and of personal interest to me, but after looking at the extensive selection of area rugs on their website, I just couldn't pass up this offer. So here is what I picked...

This rug is machine made in the USA and the one I picked is small, 23 by 39 inches. I just love the rich colors and the bold design. I am thinking about putting it in front of the fireplace in the living room. But these colors would also look very nice in our master bedroom. We have yet to extend the wood floors to the second level though, so I'm thinking it will remain on the main floor for now.

I am looking forward to receiving this rug and using it in my home. I will be sure to give you all my thoughts on the rug and my experience with the company in case you are looking to purchase rugs online. It's always nice to deal with a company whose reputation can be verified by people you trust. Hopefully this company will be one of those! I'll let you know.

Next up will be a little video on a crochet stitch used in a baby blanket that I think you will like. It's super easy and can be done in a solid color, or I found out also looks lovely crocheted in several different colors. This pattern would also make a warm and cozy scarf. You won't want to miss it!

Happy Stitching!
