Norma has been working here for about 5 years now, she is quiet and shy and tries to stay out of any pictures. She loves to play in the dye kitchen, creating new colours, and seeing how different textures work best for dying. Her work basket is full of samples swatches so she can remember how each colour looks, in case next time she wants to experiment by adding a different colour to the mix.
Last January when Deanne decided to offer the online course, Norma thought she would like to take it. Norma being Norma took the course never saying much about what she hooked but that she was enjoying it. Then last week I saw a picture of her rug, it was beautiful and you could tell she was quite proud of it, especially her sky. So yesterday I went to her house to get a few pictures, to my surprise she had completed three rugs during the online course. Well she said ” Deanne talked about stars so here are the stars, then she talked about using different textures so here is that one , then it was on to landscape.
While I was there Norma was showing me some of her other rugs, but stopped to tell me about one in particular, “this one is special ” It was one of Deanne’s patterns but Norma had used her Mother’s old skirt’s for the red in the house, since her Mom had passed away a few years ago it was nice she had this wonderful keepsake. Thanks Norma for letting me have a look at your beautiful rugs.
