Christmas Folk

This rug was so much fun to make!  I needed a large Christmas rug for my kitchen and this fit the bill.  While it is a large rug, moving from character to character maintained my interest and kept me going from start to finish.

Artist Bio

My interest in textiles started at a very early age when I had a bad cold and was probably nagging my mother endlessly.  In desperation, she went on a shopping trip and came home with a small Elsa Williams crewel kit to shut me up.  So that started my journey. 

Over the years, I continued doing crewel for a while, then needlepoint, crochet, cross stitch and finally a long stint in quilting.  It was at one of our weekly quilt meetings that two friends brought their rug hooking.  “What is that?” I asked. 

Well, that was about 2010 and while I still quilt, rug hooking has taken a dominant position in my work.  I take advantage of as many rug hooking schools as I can to learn more techniques. 

I consider myself a technician rather than a creative person.  As much as I’d like to be more creative, sometimes we just need to accept who we are and make the most of it!
