There is the silence that comes as if the the world is holding its breath before the sun comes up over Bear Mountain. There is only the barest change as the sun makes its way back to Greenhorn for the summer.
I have two rugs I have been working on for it seems so long. I was trying to finish my snow man rug yesterday so would have a finish but no luck. I thought I would show you anyway. These are the biggest rugs I have made yet. I have dyed all of the wool for them.
My snowman rug.
This whale rug I am pretty sure I have been working on it for three years at least. It is one of the first things I drew out on backing. It is by Polly Minick and the book called, "American Summer.
I have all of these old magazines that I have kept for years and years. Every time a magazine would have some of Polly's rugs I would stare at them and wish that I would be able to do that someday. I am so very happy that every time I pick up a rug hook, and run the wool through my fingers or cut a newly dyed piece on my cutter, I am so thankful that my someday came
When I went to that Wool show in September, did I tell you I got to see Polly Minick? Do you know what I did? I stood with my mouth open, in mid step, looking like a idiot. She smiled and said hi. I don't know if I even said hi back. Ron was miles across the hotel from me by then and as I ran to catch up, I said, " Did you see Polly Minick? She said hi!! she said hi to me, isn't that cool!!!" I felt just like one of those fan girls you see at movie premiers.
I have some very important people coming over to hang out with granny. I need to get some stuff ready for the visit. A very good way to spend a Friday.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
