Reminising and on to a New Year

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.
