A few years ago, I found the above picture on FaceBook and I thought it was appropriate to recognize all 'mums'. I am so fortunate to be surrounded by so many 'strong' moms in my life. We are the glue that holds everything together. When the glue gets misplaced, cracked with wear or temporarily lost , we know where to find more, we lean on each other for more glue. This is the Rug Hooking community in my opinion. We help each other out, lean on each other when needed and there is always someone there to listen. We hook to give us strength as well. It is a therapy on it's own that helps keep us 'glued'.
The Rug Hooking Guild of Nova Scotia (RHGNS) hosted their first ever 'virtual rug school' last week. It gave the opportunity for those near and far to attend, 'virtually'. I believe it was a resounding success. I asked several times if anyone had ever heard of a 'virtual rug school' before and everyone believed we were breaking new ground and very proud of it.
A 'virtual' rug display and auction were hosted, in addition to the famous 'right, left, center' game. Below are the 'peoples' choice of their favorite rugs displayed, congrats to everyone for a wonderful week.
I have hooked another 3 squares and some border on my Hollyhill design, Checkered Past since last weeks blog. I will have this done before I know it. It has been so fun to do.
This week in the mail, Ruby MacKenzie is working away at her rug she started in Rug School last week. Santa's coat is my famous 'Heather's red'. It is looking fabulous, keep us updated Ruby!
Lynne Lines has finished her 'Starry Starry Night' rug. Our group, the Town & County Thrummers will be having a display of our versions of this rug. Will be neat to see everyone's interpretations.
Have a good week everyone, stay safe.
