Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~Kahlil Gibran
The spirituality of our lives may or may not be the same, but if you Love your Higher Power and try to live with kindness...we have a kindred spirit.

My first creation using my own palette wools. and Challenge Rugs
Last Saturday was the first Annual Hook in for the Kirby Hooking Circle. Our challenge theme was to design a rug with celestial elements. We were encouraged to explore a shape other than a true square. My entry is called "The Spiral Dance" and depicts the waxing and waning of day and night at the solstices. The summer solstice is the longest day in the year, which means the photo period (hours of sunlight are waning now. The hours of darkness are gaining ground and will be equal more or less to daylight when Fall begins.)
The winner of the challenge was Martha Lowery with a super rug.(I voted for this one myself). Sorry, the upload is turning photos and I'm not quite sure how to fix that. Glad the one below didn't have Martha on her head. The large mum on her left lapel is actually her ribbon for the Challenge. :) Isn't it a wonderful design? The title is "Once in a TX moon, longhorns can fly"
There were 2 other rugs in the challenge display. A couple of other wonderful rugs were still works in progress. Sorry Lurie and TJ the program is turning them sidewise. Mine was upside down!
