Little Bittersweet Mat for Fall

This is a little mat I designed and hooked last year and sold on Ebay. I loved hooking the letters for the word bittersweet. Learning to hook around letters was a mystery to me when I first started hooking. Then my teacher showed me how to do it correctly. I was just amazed how easy it was! Since then I've tried to incorporate words or letters in quite a few of my rugs. I never tire of hooking letters! New rug hookers out there, don't be afraid to try it! Just be sure and get someone to teach you how right off the bat!

Did you know you can click on the photo's and enlarge them? Try it to see the hooking in great detail.


  1. What a cute little mat! You will have to tell us how to hook letters. I have a design in my head that uses a quote, but not sure how to do the letters. Yours are quite nice.
    I have also started a new blog on rug hooking and quilting and such--please stop by sometime!

  2. Love the background on your little mat - lots of movement!


I love comments! Thank-you!
