Dear Diary, Where I grew up they referred to where you are from, as down shore, or out the shore, across the bay, up the hill, and so on. When I make rugs of people in a context I often think of them as having posed for a picture. I just finished this piece, and it might be two sisters, a couple, cousins, or friends. It was a rug I started during a people workshop a few months ago. I was glad to get back to it and take the time for it. I hooked it in my office in the downtown studio.
