She came in hoping I had a few angel patterns. Her friend Wilder Oakes, a professional artist, saw an angel as a child with blond hair. She thought she would hook an angel rug as a gift and make the hair golden. What a thoughtful, special sentiment. She choose the pattern Celeste and was quite excited to find a design that fit what she had in mind.
We had a long chat about running a rug hooking business and traded a few experiences back and forth. Retired from the hectic world of real estate she is going the entrepreneurial route so now the work day is pure play. It's very obviously from her enthusiasm that she is having a great deal of fun exploring her creative side. She reminded me of myself when I opened my door, like a kid in a candy store. Best of luck Beth and it was fun chatting/getting to know you.
