I'm a fan of Edyth O'Neill's.
I love her antiques, western jewelry, and her rug patterns.
Discovering her through her book, Rugs for My Red Cape, I decided at once I needed to hook one of her patterns.
Only I didn't.
Edyth lost her red cape to a fire and her husband Jack passed away.
She moved into a much smaller
apartment which she decorated in her wonderful style and which was featured in Early American Life magazine.
And I found her blog.
So she was once again on my radar.
Then I happened to pick up a hooking book from our library which featured
a free pattern of her "Pomegranates."
Being the Math whiz that I am, I ordered our local copy shop to print it way too big.
But it also happened to be exactly the size of a piece of linen I had.
Artist Bob Ross would have called this a "happy little accident."
I hooked up the rug which is close to 3 X 5 ft and it fit perfectly at the foot of our bed.
|Hooked in as-is wools, #8|
I was going through a difficult time when I hooked this, but strangely this rug makes me feel happy.
Well, I guess we're prepared as we can get for this coming storm.
The local authorities have asked everyone to stay off the roads tomorrow.
I got the newest ATHA yesterday so I have reading material!!!
If you're in the path of this lulu be safe!
