The yard is full of fallen leaves, we have a nice cloudy day. Except, when you walk across the lawn, there is this little puff of dust that goes up from your feet. Kind of like Pig Pen in the Charlie Brown cartoon. We had a dust storm yesterday. I was outside yesterday and these dust clouds would come poofing off the roof. Everything is gritty to the touch. On to my rug story.
Well let me back up to Monday. I was almost finished with this rug I have been working on. I pulled the last loop about dinner time, as people were milling about wondering when dinner was going to be made. I took the rug off my frame and I realized I had not done a edge of the rug. One thing about me, is I like things off kilter, not balanced and whimsical. All of the people who were waiting for dinner though, said, " What happened to the other side? How come you made a three sided rug?" Here is the rug now, I didn't take a before picture.
This is a big rug. The top of the table is 60 inches and it is almost side to side. I liked this rug too. It will maybe live at home with me now and not be sold. I know its flaws and it has become dear to me.
That is my saga of rug hooking.
I hope you have a lovely Wednesday, I hope you have a lovely day.
the water taste sweet."
