|Hamlin, Saskatchewan, 1977|
You can guess what I'm going to try to do this summer. I need photos. Road trips, here I come! I'm not the only one nostalgic for them. A Needle Pulling Thread's current magazine has a fabulous article on the Heritage Rug Hookers of Saskatoon along with two dozen photos of their gorgeous works of art, each featuring a grain elevator in a prairie scene. Yep - rugs as art. You would have to see it to believe it. Those women have made some gorgeous pieces! They are currently on exhibit in galleries.
So what's my point? Well, remember this piece I made?
It's quilted and finished. Mom said, "stick a tree in it!". I had thought it needed an elevator in it. After looking through all those photos, I did it. Now, it's done, and just how I want it. ; )
There. It's just how I remember it.
still a work in progress...
