According to Kathy O’Donnell, Lynn saw a picture of a rug in Rug Hooking Magazine hooked by Stephanie Allen-Krauss’s husband’s deceased wife. She asked him for permission to hook it.
Stephanie extends the story:
“This was originally hooked by Cosette Allen from a photo she took of the Parsonage on Star Island which is off the coast of NH. For many years she and her (now my) husband Ted spent many summers on this island directing retreats. Lynn saw Cosette’s rug and asked if she could copy it, and Cos said yes. We have Cosette’s rug hanging in our dining room.”
