Midnight in Maine
"Midnight in Maine" was the 2nd piece I've ever done. I designed this rug for a workshop that was being held at www.Searsportrughooking.com with Polly Minick and started in the workshop in 2006. That's me in the second row holding up the painted linen with the beginning of the rug. I had such a mess designing this rug, no extra linen and so to solve not being able to see where I was going with this rug I took acrylic paints, after all I am an artist too (dah), and painted the darn thing - what did I know, but it worked just the same. Now I'm a bit more careful with planning out my designs ahead of time and then transferring them to the linen.
