The beginning of a Scrappy lockerhook runner

My GLAMPER runner is started and coming along nicely. Its my first lockerhook rug I've ever made. I'm finding it relaxing and addictive.  Love sitting and working on it. Its going to be a 10 foot runner so I'm wondering two things...  how long is it hoing to tske me to finish and do I have enough fabric?... will keep inquiring minds updated at the project develops.

My Glamper will get a lockerhooked runner soon.

This summer I took my very boring camper and turned it into a Glamper. With new valances, curtains , quilts and upholstry. I gave it the look of a co untry western bunk house.  I even dressed up the boring walls with jute and a embossed leather strip. Its all came together beautifully... but one thing is missing.  The floors have a white/grey linoleum and its cold to step on in the early brisk Idaho air when camping in the mountains.  I decided to make a locker hooked runner in coordinating colors. I have never ever made a rug.. so this is a first for me. I took a class and cut up all the material into strips. Im excited about making my first rug. Wish me luck.

Winter is fast approaching... so I have been sooooo busy here.

Harvesing the garden and not to mention all the herbs. Tinctures to make, soaps to set to cure...  I do love my life here on this little plo...
