Featured Rug of the Month August 2017
Let Freedom Ring 26"x22"
Designed and hooked by Camelia Gould
I started this project after receiving some much needed and deeply appreciated encouragement from Judy Taylor, Singing HeARTS Studio, (located in Orillia, Ontario,) and Kay Lefevre. All of these things happened about the same time and I felt that the universe was making a point of telling me I needed to get started!
I wanted my first design to be fairly simple and straightforward, with just a pinch of challenge to it. I thought a heart and star would be straightforward enough and for the challenge, I added words to my rug. My stash is small and my color choices even smaller still; mostly red, white, blue, and grey. I thought a flag design, (just in time for the Fourth of July,) would be perfect!
I am always amazed at how the backing transforms into something beautiful after just a few hours!
So now that I am all done punching and ironing, my rug is now ready to be pinned and trimmed!
Tada! My first rug!! I am really pleased with how it turned out and I learned SO much from just doing it! Best part? It feels so AMAZING on the feet!
Funny thing about the universe...I got another message on the drive home from Orillia. The messenger was in the form of a Raven this time!
