WHAT ARE GRANDMAS FOR?Another masterpiece finished.
Grandmas are for stories about things of long ago.
Grandmas are for caring about all the things you know.
Grandmas are for rocking you and singing you to sleep.
Grandmas are for giving you nice memories to keep.
Grandmas are for knowing all the things you're dreaming of.
But, most of all, Grandmas are for love.
Grammy Beck said she would hook her twin grandchildren both a rug if they drew pictures so Emma did the flower part of the design and Bailey made the geometric key tile incorporated along the border. Their artwork together with Linda Ruth's classy style inspired this beautiful floor runner. This is the first of two rugs that Grammy will complete and present to the girls when they are older.
Linda Ruth used the 1st part of the formula Red Maple from one of our dye books SkyBluePink With A Green Smell over an orange and white plaid to dull it down. She also over-dyed all of the other found wools and cashmere mixes for the inside squares.
Emma had drawn more flowers so they will be featured in the second rug. The girls turn 12 today, May 23rd. Happy Birthday!
As I've joked before, Linda Ruth is the queen of straight line hooking. She also doesn't work from a pattern, lays down a few rows and designs as she goes...where she'll stops no one knows!
