While we were on vacation we decided to haul the boat over to my sister's house in Vermont. It was only about 1 1/2 hours from the lake house we had rented and we decided it made more sense then to haul it all the way back to Missouri only to haul it back up when we move in November. So, while I was there I snapped some photos of her rugs. She has hooked for many years, we both learned from Mom a long time ago. Some of you may have purchased wool from my sister, she sold hand dyed wool on ebay for many years under the name lbkmt. She decided to get a "real" job for a few years at a local historical society and is now focusing on her paper mache folkart as I have told you before. Anyway, her rugs are gorgeous!!! She tends to go a bit more primitive than I do, although I love the look equally as much and her colors are a bit darker. I find it fascinating though to see everyone's interpretation of a design. Enjoy the tour of her rugs!
