I spotted this book at our local library, it was donated by the local quilt guild. As I rug hook and also do wool applique, I immediately checked it out. It is wonderful! I took it to our local Fiber Art guild and immediately it was claimed by a hooking friend who also checked it out. She ordered it. I would love to have it too.
