Spring comes to northern New England late. As I write this there are snowflakes in the air and the sky is dark. It is hard to think of spring and spring flower. It seems that there will be a few more days before I can happily start the spring clean up and work the gardens. It will be a few more days before the brown is replaced by green and colorful blooms. I long for the magic and promise of spring.
When I was growing up my mother filled our life with strips of wool in many colors. I would watch as my Mom drew pictures with those strips of wool. Rug hooking was and is still a bit mystifying to me. What I did understand clearly was that those strips of wool brightened my imagination and open the doors to my own creativity.
I love that my sister has filled her shop with wonderful seasonal rug hooking kits. They remind me of the flowers that I remember my Mom working on. This spring I have dropped in at the web site to have a look and perhaps get a little early inspiration. I am never sure what will come from those visits, however I do know that they light a spark in my heart that pushes me toward my own creativity.
Please check out the store at Green Mountain Hooked Rugs for your own preview of the seasons. And perhaps you will be inspired to step fully into the spring season.
