After a whirlwind trip to Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week in Ohio, which came on the heels of a visit from our son and his family, I’m ready to get back to “normal”. Normal for me is a quiet life surrounded by dogs and chickens and plenty of time to hover over the rug hooking frame.
In the meantime, while waiting for normalcy to return, I’ll share a photo of my until-now super secret rug that was in the Sauder rug show. The title of the rug is Fickle Finger of Fate, and it was designed and hooked by me for a group project spearheaded by Lisanne Miller. The theme of this group project is, “a door closes - a window opens”.
I must confess that this theme really threw me for a loop. Luckily, I had a lot of time in which to complete my rug, because it took me a lot of time to decide on a design. My interpretation of the theme is that when you come to a roadblock in your life, you may want to consult someone who is in touch with his or her sixth sense. So, why not visit a palm reader to get some guidance for your future?
Another excellent Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week is in the books and I’m already looking forward to next year.
There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the convergence of rug hookers from all points on the map.
