Marolyn Cook was kind enough to take the time to send us the following email along with a photo of this rug:
I purchased this rug from Deanne in 2001. It is special to me because I love cats and I had just begun rug hooking. I had finished a small rug from a kit and then designed one of my own after reading Deanne’s book “Hook Me A Story”. I had also started subscribing to Rug Hooking Magazine but had never seen a contemporary hooked rug in person. Being basically self taught I wanted to see what I could aspire to, looking at the height of the loops and the textures of the wool. My cat rug was a wonderful teaching tool and expanded my world of fiber. Today this rug hangs in the studio/office of my home and Deanne’s work continues to offer me inspiration for my rugs.
All the best,
Sierra Madre, CA
