There was a discussion on RHD (Rug Hooking Daily) on having quotes on rugs…..this is one of my favorite things to do…..as much as I detest hooking words, I love having something you can read as you go by it every day….either to remind you of where you have been or where you want to go.
This is the first rug that I hooked that had words incorporated into it….our basset hound “Geairmo” loved to go for walks….I remember him on a daily basis when I see this rug in our living room.
This next rug is in our entryway…..the design is from the cover or a vintage book and the saying is from the book, “The Little Prince”…..actually my husband picked the picture AND the quote.
….And the fox said to the Little Prince… “Men have forgotten this Truth. But you must not forget it. You become responsible forever for what you have tamed.”
It’s a daily reminder to be responsible with animals….even though there are no animals in this particular rug.
The next two rugs are on the floor in my hooking room….they are reminders to me to follow my dreams….
I don’t really have any quotes in mind for future rugs, but I’m sure that when I come upon one I’ll be able to dream up a rug to incorporate it into.
