"This rug was started in a class at Maryland Shores. My teacher was Nancy Blood who color planned the rug for me. I bought the wool. My home teacher taught all her students to dye their own wool. For that I am very grateful. All my later rugs are done on monk's cloth with a #3 cut. I have more control with the shading than with a larger cut. I tried a #6 cut once—never again. My grandson has put his name on it since he lives on Peacock Lane in Texas. He thinks he should have it. He may be right, but Grandma is not ready to part with it yet."
