I showed two hooked rugs in Art Fayre this past weekend, and when I opened The Glengarry News yesterday, I discovered a photo of one of the rugs and little blurb:
He got the title slightly wrong, since it is "Turkish FISHIES", and the cropping is weird, and the orientation is wrong, but I am nonetheless chuffed to see one of my babies in the local paper. Here's a better photo of the rug. The words around the outside are an old Algonquin saying, and the fish are inspired by the ones I saw on ceramic tiles when I visited Turkey.
Lately I've been writing my own verse to put in the borders of my rugs, like for this one I just sold on Etsy. (I LOVE Etsy!) As you can see, I have a bit of a thing for fish, not to mention using the word "fishies" in my titles:
Thanks to my ATC friends for inviting me to participate in this show. It was a lot of fun, and the work on display was just beautiful.
