I was rearranging the art on the walls today and I came across this rug. I use to make a lot of dress rugs and sometimes people would ask “where is the body?”. The body? I wasn’t quite ready for that! Eventually I moved on to “headless ballerinas” then finally I felt confident to add the whole body..but it took years of hooking. Sometimes people ask if I sell my designs as patterns, but no, I don’t. They are all one-of-a-kind……and if I can do this, so can you…just take it step-by-step and you will do it.
