The anniversary of my move to Colorado is coming up. Of course, what that brings to mind is all things that occurred before my move which are Tag-related. (Like, for real, those things are never out of my mind, though. Ya know?)
I am not going to say anything about the brown boy. Perhaps someday, just not today.
What I wanted you to know, though, was that I found something today that I had completely forgotten about...and when I saw it, I smiled. That, right there, was reason enough to pull it out and put it in place.
I hooked this 22 x 29 inch rug in 2007. It was a free pattern in Rug Hooking Magazine that I fell in love with. I enlarged it (a lot!). I hooked it with woolens I had dyed. And, I named it 'Tag E. Butt'. Yes, I did!
When I finished it, I declared it to be my favorite rug. Ever. Why? Because the dog is so goofy looking. Though Tag was not goofy looking, he could be a very goofy boy...caught on film and shown several times on this very blog. I thought this goofy looking dog captured the very essence of the brown boy.
It makes me smile.
This hooked rug is now on the bedroom floor in front of my cedar chest, which is at the end of my bed.
I'm still smiling.
