A belated Merry Christmas!
I managed to stay unplugged yesterday for the most part and enjoy the day. As I reflected back to prior Christmases I recalled the Christmas of 1979. Yes, that was 35 years ago, I did the math. I can't believe how time flies. Back to the point. It was on that particular Christmas I received my first rug pattern, wool, hook, cutter and frame. My mother got me the whole kit and kaboodle!! I was on my way and never looked back. Yesterday I went looking for that rug that was started on that Christmas day. It has been rolled up and tucked away for a few years now as I haven't had a place for it. I laid it out and took a picture to post today as a reminder of where I started and how far I've come.
Here it is! A pattern by Pearl McGown, called Paisley. I hooked it all with a #3 cut. It is on burlap as that was the only option back in the 70's.
Now I look forward to a new year and some new rugs, keeping in mind where I started and how far I've come.
