You may recognize this little house on the hill; it is from Anni Downs applique pattern, My Favourite Things. I turned it into a rug hooking, using all wool yarn. My first rug hooking was made from strips of wool fabric and as I plan for my third rug, it will be made from a combination of both.
I never did show you my homemade lap frame, made at the same time as my yarn swift. This type of frame is best when working with wool fabric strips. Wool yarn can easily be pulled out by the fine grip needles, so if you are working with all yarn, a quilting hoop works best. You can also use a quilting hoop with fabric strips, but you may need to replace the bolt with a longer one, as it can get bulky.
