Recently a friend gave me this lovely rag rug she made on a loom passed down through the generations. I love it for that reason, and for the thoughtfulness she puts into everything she does. She puts the craft into craftsmanship.
As much as I admire Mary Ann, seeing the rug is a daily inspiration to bring joy into my work, and into my life. The feel on my bare feet is pleasure, and I like to think connects our souls, or soles, from afar.
