A recent trip to my favourite second hand shop had me taking a trip down memory lane... back to the 70's. I came upon this rug hooking kit circa 1970 something!
Still in it's original box, take a look at the photo on the back.
It is totally printed in German too! This makes it even more unique. The canvas is 100% cotton and the yarn is 100% wool!
I got really excited when I saw that the original instructions were included. The Big Guy was soon to remind me that I don't speak German. LOL Diane and Lisa both took a few years of German during High School. Diane said that there are only two sentences that she understands. "Be quiet please, Diane." and "Can I please go to the bathroom?" Yes, she was not a strong German student. ;) Lisa, on the other hand, had a good accent and was a keen student, so maybe she would be of more help with translation.
This is the perfect 70's palette!
Oh the hooked shag look brings me back.
Kitty Forman would be proud to have this wall piece hanging in her living room. As for me, Rob has suggested that it hang next to the freezer, in the basement unfinished utility room. :( I think it may just end up somewhere in the basement near my lamp. ;)
It was red tag sale day, so it only cost $1 and then $0.20 for each extra roll of yarn. A total cost of $2.20 to bring back a piece of the past! I just hope I have enough yarn to finish the design. I'll keep you posted. :)
