"I became immersed in hooking Buckingham during the winter of 2013 while waiting for a hip replacement operation. Dyeing the wool and hooking the flowers was totally absorbing. The rug had been started by Dianne May who had taken a course with Helen Connelly. When Dianne died, I bought the rug at an estate sale. I kept three flowers of Dianne’s and found a picture of Helen’s rug in A Rug Hooker’s Garden which helped me to colour plan it. Analyzing the picture and how she used colour was like taking a course with Helen herself."
