Christine's Rug


This past summer, Christine, our superb letterer, designed a stunning rug. The rug is quite large and we laughingly told her it would take her the rest of her life. This week, she came in with 1/3 of the rug finished! I am amazed that someone can stitch so much and so fast. Christine's rug is an example of the absolute beauty of the basketweave stitch. It's the right stitch for a functional item like a rug -- and it is lovely.

I thought I had managed to capture Christine in the photo but someone I didn't get her face. So you will just have to admire her rug.
