The Rug That Started It All

This is the rug that inspired me to think about rug making.

It was hooked quite some time ago by a sweet Amish lady (the grandmother of a man at our church).
Look at that detail and shading!

Doesn't it look like something straight out of Anthropologie?
Perhaps some day I will have developed the skill to make something as beautiful as this.
That's the hope.
