Hook Rug, Crock-Pot Roast

Have you ever hooked a rug? I just bought a kit, fairly elementary shapes, hoping I can figure out what to do. Any advice would be welcomed.
Here it is December the 20th, and its 52 degrees outside. We've had it rough the last few winters so I'm grateful for the mild weather so far, and worry about the people and animals suffering through a blizzard right now.
I haven't tried this recipe yet but am told by more than one person that it turns out fabulous.
Crock Pot Roast

o 3 lb roast
o 2 packages dry brown gravy mix
o 2 packages dried Italian salad dressing mix
o 1 package dry ranch dressing mix
o 1 cup (good drinking) red wine
o 1 cup water

Place beef roast in crock pot. Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast. Pour the water and wine around the roast, and cook on low for 6-8 hours.
I haven't been blogging much but I do still enjoy it.  I'll have a few days off around the holidays, looking forward to taking photo's around our farm so please stay tuned. We have 22 Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats and I'm way behind on getting some good photo's of each of them.

Thanks for that recipe..looks like one to try! I love coming home after work and a good pot roast is simmering away in the crockpot. Wow, 22 nigerians? My Granddaughter always tells people when they ask how many goats do I have that its around 50. I do not have 50..only 15 and only 6 that I actually milk. Just seems like gobs when they're under foot trying to mingle. Anxious to see some of your photos. Merry Christmas Joanne!

Pot Roast in the crock pot is one of my faves too! I did a small hooked rug project once and really liked it! It is not hard but took a lot longer than I thought it would,lol!
