The summer issue is here! Chock full of inspiring articles and lovely rugs, you are sure to find just what you are looking for. Sandra Brown begins her series on Oriental rugs and Deb Szwed tells us about her fascinating painted skies. For a bit of fun, Kathy Donovan designed a polar bear ice-cream treat rug sure to be welcome on those hot, steamy days coming our way. We offer you a preview of the newest RHM book, Hooked on Words, as author Ellen Banker gives some advice on hooking letters. And Anne Bond’s cheeky animals are sure to make you smile! Pour yourself a tall glass of lemonade, settle in for a break from your busy life, and enjoy this summertime issue.
