LABELS= putting the PROVENANCE on BACK of our RUGS
we all got it done that is . . . .but I thought I would show here today Marie Andrée Vézinas beautiful labels her sister in Alberta sent her . . .somehow printed on muslin then MA wrote herself the information to remain on her rugs.
I believe these can be ordered online . . .
I am going to make some for my students as they all want now of course . . .so I will post progress report one day soon . . ..
Her rug was designed and hooked by herself, Marie Andrée. . .. it is about the ''Filles du Roi'' . .
the women sent out to Quebec from France,due to a shortage of women to marry those in need of a wife!Can you imagine being such a woman? So Marie Andrée had a gr gr gr grandmother Miss Vézina amongst them and has depicted the scene here in her masterpiece! I really like her wood looking frame . .. .Bravo !!Colours are of course much better in real . . . .
