almost famous

I received a surprise phone call from my aunt yesterday. She had ordered the new book, Hooked Rugs Today 2006, and one of my rugs is featured on the back cover...

The house mat was designed by Deanne Fitzpatrick. I started it at a workshop at her place in the Fall of 2005, where I was encouraged to use lots of other textures (wool slub, fleece, mohair locks, etc.). If you ever have the opportunity to take one of her classes or even to visit her studio in Amherst, I encourage you to go. You will not be disappointed.
