Locker hooking

DD's Graduation rug
 Well here are some samples of my newest addiction - Locker hooking.
  My DD's rug has a spear to represent the spear from her HS mascot - an Indian, and written on the spear are initials from her HS activities, and a softball with her number and HS initials, a flag and the background of blue with flag material to represent her AF JrROTC.
   The yarn rug was more expensive to do than I expected as the yarn was about 5 dollars a skein and took WAAYYYY more than I thought it would!!!
  I really had fun with the wall hanging - designed the flowers and added fuzzy yarn and buttons to the centers of the flowers and fuzzy yarn for clouds in the sky.
Made with yarn

 The last rug was my first attempt at a rug after taking a class at the local quilt shop, associated with our local, all volunteer adult learning center.
  I have one more finished to take pictures of and at least 3 more rugs lined up to do - another for my DD, one for DS for graduation and one or two more for gifts (hopefully for next Christmas - I have yet to keep track of the time it takes me but I just started one and am tracking it just for curiosity - the rug I just finished - the orange and blues, took my about 2 and 1/2 months of evening couch time when not at work)
