This is the story of a very special little coat that touched my heart in 1948, wove its way into a rose patterned rug in 1954, then came home to live with me in 2010. It's also a story about hooked rugs, an almost forgotten art.

Sharon...that really is amazing! I used to hook rugs and haven't done it for years. I was quite a Happy Hooker! Come to think of it, it was darn therapeutic! Loved this story and the memories that rug holds for you! Thanks for sharing.

Funny Kat, I almost titled this article "Happy Hooker" then thought better of it! Smiling

It is therapeutic, absolutely, I already have my burlap ready. Now I just have to find some wool.
I might have to hit the thrift shops.

Good to know that you've 'hooked', too!

This is a beautiful story, Sharran. I wish that your mother was here reading it. Thank you for bringing it to us.

Thanks, Stormy.

Mom would say: "there she goes again, tackling just one more thing. How many hours does she think she has in a day..."
