no so hot off the hook

This is a rug I began months ago. I had to stop along the way due to running out of certain colours and not being able to find the wool again. BUT I persevered and luck was on my side. So here it is ready to go to its new owner...The new owner is someone I have never met before but she has been on my mind a lot. She is 21 and lost her whole family in the fires. Her family were close friends to one of the ministers at my church and that is how I heard about her.

I remember when I was 21 and estranged from my family and feeling very lost, alone and small. I got the opportunity to reconnect with my family, this girl won't. I imagine this winter will have an even colder chill about it for this lovely girl.....
