Snow White and Rose Red

Monday, December 19, 2011

I've not shown you updates on the Snow White and Rose Red rug for ages now. I have, of course, been working hard on it, for it soothes me to have the wool in my hands and the colours before me.

If you don't know the story behind this rug, you can find the original Grimm version all over. My affinity for the story is told here and here. I still think about Tender Morsels, you know. Almost every day and my screen saver has never changed...reminding me that my happiness is not paramount, but my presence always is required.

The next rug will be Red Riding Hood and I am starting to dig around about how I feel about it. There is something potently dark and sexual about that story that draws me and it is going to require some more digging around in boxes in closest's that I don't always root through in my psyche.

It's beautiful. You're inspiring me to give rug hooking a try myself.

This is such a fine work of art (and labor of love as well). It's gorgeous!

Hi Dawn, That's an amazing creation! You managed to get so much life and movement into those two figures. And I'm not so much pleased, I guess (although that, too), as awed that Tender Morsels reached so far into you. And honoured to have my words as your screen saver. All the best, Margo.
