Inspiring messages.


Here is a picture of the lettering finished on my Deanne Fitzpatrick pattern. Every time I pick the rug up to work on it, the words really echo in my head. They are great words to live by, which is what drew me to the pattern in the first place. I like that they are not "perfect". Because the spacing differs from line to line, it feels more like a spoken word than a printed one, which I like.

And, as I work on the rug, the words are inspiring me to make it my own. Not only have I put me into the picture, but I have a wonderful idea for the mat I will be working on. I don't want to give it all away, but it should be fun and will hopefully not just bring a smile to me as the 'hooker', but to you as the 'looker' too.

Stay tuned.

Hi

I found your blog through Sherri-the shabby sheep. I noticed first that you are Canadian...

I am a novice rug hooker in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. What I noticed was you are doing a pattern by Deanne Fitzpatrick...isn't she the best?

Drop by my blog and have a peek...

Hey Wendie.......Ok, ok, ok....you "inspired" me to get going on this same pattern which has been waiting in the wings since I got home from Nova Scotia in October. Color choices abound but I finally just decided to get going and see where it takes me. :)
