Suddenly I'm feeling a little "verklempt" (teary) as I write this. I just casually added the kit for our "Stars and Flowers" hooked rug to my website and then posted a picture of it to facebook, but as I was thanking my Mother it really hit me!! I am very lucky! I get to design these rugs and hand them to my mother and voila, she hooks them beautifully. It's not the fact that we are churning out patterns, products, rugs,etc. I know that I am very lucky to have such a great working relationship with my Mother. In fact, she is already upstairs cutting the wool for her next three rug projects. We get giddy like two young girls when it comes to what we do. I can tell her honestly if I don't like something and she can do the same. I've been posting pictures of my son helping us in the studio over the past few days and well, my husband has ALWAYS been there for me in "the next crazy idea". I am very lucky to be surrounded with such a supportive family. I probably won't show them this post as well, I'm getting mushy and it's a little embarrassing, but, gosh, I really do appreciate them all!!!
So, with that said, "Ta Da!" Mom did finish the Stars and Flowers rug. Like the title of this post says, "WOW".
There has been a lot of chatter about this one, if you are interested in hooking it, both the pattern and kit are available. I have made it very affordable to you to purchase the kit in parts. To see, click on the link below:
Again, thanks so much Mom!!
I on the other hand have not been quite as speedy at getting the punched version done, but it is coming along. I hope to have it done by next week, then it's on to the applique version!
