Well now that probably needs to be explained!!! A few months ago I hooked a chicken rug – one of the Alana Kapell patterns I carry. I attached it to the top of an antique egg crate (used for transporting flats of eggs) and ran the handle through the rug so that it could be carried. Welll Gord suggested it would make a great little table if it had legs soooo the weekend of our spring studio tour I asked one of my guest artists, Steve Henderson, if he could whip me up some metal legs. Sure! he could and yesterday Gord picked them up. They are nobbly legs with feet and a platform on the top that totally holds my eggcrate secure and safe. It is now a wonderfully whimsical piece of funky folkart and I love it!!!!
Update on the church rug – it is moving along and I have to admit I am quite happy with it. I know there are fine hookers out there who probably would have done a much better job but considering I don’t hook realism or anything near realism I am happy with the results so far. Hopefully the woman who commissioned it will be as well or hmmm I may be enjoying my rug for a while!!:-)
