Do you remember this butterfly rug?
I crocheted it in March 2007. I first saw a rug like this that my cousin Barbara had made for her grandchild three years ago.
I liked it so much I asked for the pattern so I could make it for my little
grand kid's bedroom.
It was made using fleece and a huge fat crochet hook, but first long strips of fleece needed to be cut out and sewn end to end and then rolled into a ball from which one would
then crochet it into shape.
I did not own a sewing machine.
I went out and bought a sewing machine. (the cheapest one I could find)
I made the rug.
Then I said: "Now what am I going to DO with this sewing machine?"
I could say "the rest is history!"
But, we aren't done yet.
Cousin Barb recently came to my blog and saw my art quilts, the one I just finished for the
woman in NY.
She said: "I want to commission you to make an art quilt with my six (two on the way) grandchildren on it next year for my playroom!"
And that is when I saw
this has come
Who would have thought that admiring a crocheted rug would change my life
in so many ways in so short a time?

Someone moved the blue sparklie flower from it's place here
to decorate the Raven. You can see the mystery move
