  12. Think of the time to hook rugs as the productive time that it is.
  13. Finish binding any rugs that you have not bound. They will inspire you.
  14. Make yourself a nice cup of tea or coffee when you go to hook.
  15. Show your rugs to people and let them enjoy them.
  16. Buy wool that inspires and excites you and put it where you see it.
