Good-bye to a sweet little rug; ‘Asilomar’

‘Asilomar’ designed & hooked by Laura Pierce

This little rug has served its purpose; it was used in my letter heading for ‘Asilomar’ rug camps and fiber jam, I sold several patterns, I liked to use it as a teaching example for wide-cut finessing and fine-cut sneaking, it hung on our walls at home and traveled with me to many rug classes for 8 years, and now, it’s been sold.

The commission was quite reasonable at PTArts, so I put prices on a few of the rugs. How fun to have one sell! It was a decent price, plus a little for PTArts; I feel good about it.

I wanted to share the rest of the show with you. It was very fun having a rug show in a Gallery setting… with lights!

We corresponded by email when we were setting up the Rug Show, so I can imagine that asking for 20 rugs in their minds might have miss-matched with 20 of my rugs… ha!
I should probably stop calling my rugs ‘rugs’… perhaps ‘tapestries’ would present a better sense of what many of us do these days.

I did include some of my ‘real’ rugs in the show; ‘Datura Design’ and ‘Symmetry in Four’.

I got to pick out the table cloth, while we were getting ready for the ‘Opening’. There were 3 other ‘Opening’s that night in Fort Bragg, but we got a decent crowd… folks turned out to see the rugs!
