"Cabins" is only the second rug I have ever given as a gift. Rug hooking is not exactly difficult, but it is very time consuming and with today's wool and linen prices, it is quite an expensive craft. I have to wonder if folks who receive a rug as a gift think, "Seriously, she made me a rug?" I don't know, it is kind of an odd gift. But it is truly, truly a gift from the heart, that takes lots and lots of time, energy, and creative thought. Each and every hooked piece lends itself to a certain mood or feeling that seems to prevail while hooking. "Cabins" reminded me of growing up in Colorado, time spent in the Colorado Rockies and of course, the lovely couple to which I am gifting the rug.
Last day of Christmas break for the kiddos. I am sad. I love Christmas time and I'm disappointed that the holidays flew by so very quickly. But onward and upward, lots to do and more to be grateful for!
Until next time,
