When I completed the whipping on my 5’x7′ rug, Annie, it was only two days before it was to be on display in our local gallery. My husband had made a frame to hang the rug on and that is where ‘she’ has been for the last month–on show. Yesterday I did two things. I bought rubber carpet underlay and then went to collect Annie from the gallery. Now the rug is happily in our front room with the Dillard quotation and the 65 houses that span a big part of a lifetime. I hope to enjoy living with ‘her’ for a good while to come.
