Self Portrait

I’ve hooked and hooked on the big rug the past 2 days…..

I’ve got a lot accomplished but still a lot to go…….

My favorite part of this rug design is that no matter how you look at it,

it makes sense…..upside down,

right side up….

I am part of the rug, the rug is part of me…..

Pulling up the loops, one by one, is a meditation..

Hooking let’s you leave yourself, yet come back to yourself.


  1. LOVE your artistry...creativity...talent to achieve what you do. Always love your photos. That rug is awesome! Totally you. And, the boots. I LOVE them!
