Bernice Howell designed this rug from a photograph that her husband took nearly 40 years ago. In it, their daughter, Anne, stands waiting for her mother to make alterations to a dress she is modeling for a friend.
Bernice's favorite part of this rug is Anne's face. She had very little space to capture that important focal point of the rug and was thrilled with the final result. It was a real accomplishment.
