An Angel Rug that Made ME "Oh So Happy to See"


Years ago I wrote an angel book (Everyday Angels in Extraordinary Quilts) and through this made a new friend who is a rug hooker. She has taken designs and made them into rugs (with my permission). I am working on doing some new books and patterns and want to do some things that can be either made into quilts or hooked into a rug or painted or done with paper or...? I think this rug is adorable. Wait until you see the other things she is doing! It is such fun to work with someone who has the same whimsy and happy spirit and yet is doing something different than you are.
This is why I love Folk Art so much.

Don't you just love being around other creative people? It is such fun to see what ideas others have and it usually sparks and idea for something new. With all the pictures youshare of your trips it's like we all get to go along with you:)

Hi Mary Lou,

The angel rug is adorable, what a great friend she is! I hope she continues to make them and share them with others. Keep up the great work on the blog.

Hi Mary Lou,
I haven't seen your blog for a couple of days and WOW! So many wonderful photos! I enjoy so much having an armchair tourist's view of all of the wonderful places you have visited and 'meeting' some of the creative people you have met and befriended along the way. Your blog is a constant source of inspiration for me, and I am sure others, too. The photos and your comments are a wonderful reminder of just how much we are all capable of, if and when we let the child within come out to play!
