My latest Mat/ Wall Hanging
I am busily hooking away here but sometimes do not post a picture of a mat that I have already done but I will share this one (which I have done MANY times for people) that I did for a young woman from my hometown of Lord's Cove, Newfoundland, called "When Cod Was King". This mat has a heartfelt connection to her because her Dad was one of the Trap's Crew (as they were called) that brought in this huge load of cod fish in the more abundant years. This is a scene that will NOT be seen in my day because of the demise of the cod fishery here in my little Outport. Other members of her family has this mat ordered and I will make sure I will complete them later this year. There are just so many that I would love to do but can't seem to step away from the ones that I post because people see them and want to order...I have retired one already and this will be the second one that I intend to do just that with....There is no challenge in this one anymore.
