Hit or Miss

I’ve always had a fascination with antique hit or miss rugs and have always wanted to try my hand at making one. I just never seemed to be abe to get past my mental road block to find just the right inspiration to get things going. Finally, after what must have been my ten thousandth google image search, I spied inspiration in the form of a spiral. This was a hit or miss style I hadn’t seen before. Armed with a plan and an alarmingly large pile of worms left over from other hooking projects, I set myself to the task.


My work progressed quickly and grew addictive. No sooner than I had finished one piece, I was off and running to the next. I’m teaming with ideas for color combinations and backgrounds.

The second spiral was meant to be a larger version of my first but with a pale background instead. When I finished the circle, however, I thought it might have greater impact simply as a round. And then I had my best idea all day and asked Dave to make me a primitve looking door or such that I could mount the finished piece to. I could not be happier with the results.
