Day 161: Hideous Rug

image

Okay, it is about that time that I share some awful art.

This was a handmade rug specifically made for my husband when he was a baby.

Can you see the kitten’s head poking from underneath a white blanket? And its paw is sticking out too.

What is important to remember is that this was created and given with love.

I told my MILaw that I wanted a picture to remind my hubby of his beloved baby rug to see if he would remember. The real reason? To share it on my blog.
Low but you have to take what you can get.

Day 120: 4-H exhibits

image

Cloverville was the part of one wing devoted to 4-H projects.
Some of the photography and paintings were not bad. Most of the folkart was uninspired but I will share a favorite here.

Above is the horseshoe bootrack. The stand was made almost entirely of horseshoes. The crossbar was a piece of rebar. The whole thing was painted black.
This was easily Kit’s favorite household art piece.

There were several entires for table setting and message boards—two categories I had no clue existed.

Most of the clothing looked like ancient maccall patterns but this dress really spoke to me. The size was so tiny that the back didn’t zip on the manakin. The little seamstress that put this together must be quite petite. I would pay her to make one in my size. Beautiful simple dress.
