A STORY RUG

THE CITY

 What I liked about this rug (yes @ Shelburne show) is that it not only works as a wall piece but it could also be  a FLOOR RUG due to its abstractness  . . .the design works all around even though there are realistic objects in it!I especially love the little dog and the little cars . . . .and the afternoon shadows cast on the rock cliff canyon . . . .it has an interesting  and unconventional border . . and tells a story I would love to know!


I apologize to the maker as I can not find the photo of the label!
THANK YOU JEN MANUEL for sending me the photo of explanation!!!
                                        ANN WINTERLING

I certainly hope to go there one day!Meanwhile Ill just enjoy looking at your rug!

MEMORY RUG JOURNAL

This is a collage printed  on fabric as BLUEPRINTS  . . .
I may just finish it as is . with a sewing machine  .  .
its a bit to complicated for a rug on the floor . . . .
but
the  lace edging could be a great rug BORDER design !. . .


Roses are blooming in the garden now. . .
I am starting to pack up  my collection of Idea JOURNAL savings for the WORKSHOP I am giving in MAHONE BAY at Encompassing designs 3rd weekend of July . . . MEMORY  or STORY RUGS.  . .


I long for the sea . . .
Can't WAIT to get home to Nova Scotia! a few days from now . . . . ..

A STORY RUG CAN  be APPROACHED FROM MANY DIFFERENT WAYS    IT Could BE :
-AN EMOTIONAL RUG
-A PERSONAL RUG or
NON PERSONAL-It doesn’t have to be your OWN STORY . .. it can be anyone elses story! 
It can be approached in an objective way
It could be a commemorative STORY
A MEMORY from CHILDHOOD
A WEDDING RUG. . . . . .. . 
Could be a SONG . . .
almost any rug  is in the end a STORY RUG I THINK!


PLEASE READ  to the TOP RIGHT of this BLOG for information regarding WORKSHOPS . . .Moose River - 8 July is FULL but I think Mahone Bay-22 July has place left . . . .
