Hearts & Flowers, 21 x 34, hooked by Roberta Siegel as a “gift rug” to the Clarke House Museum in Chicago, Illinois. The placement of the rug is in “the little girl’s bedroom.” The crisp colors and awesome background make this a super rug.
The following is excerpted from Roberta’s email to Barb:

I just want to update you on the rug for Clarke House in Chicago. I presented it to the Colonial Dames of Illinois a week or so ago. They were absolutely thrilled!!! We went to the room to place it by the bed in the girl’s bedroom and the whole room came to life. It really made it look like someone was living there.
It was both gratifying and a little sad to see my rug leave my possession. I am happy to say that as a docent for the House, I can visit it any time I like.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours,
