Carole Bukowski Pelot: I am Willing
Thoughts of legacy and my seven grandchildren during the 2020 Lockdown prompted the “I Am Willing” rug. It is 18” X 7";, wool hooked on linen, 6 and 8 cut, with velvet letters. What other means could I use to address the worldwide anxiety regarding our health and safety, extreme political division, and the racism that appeared more rampant than ever before?
My plan was to hook a series of pieces beginning with the willingness to love and be loved, the willingness to say no, the willingness to help, etc. My reminder here, is to always be open to doing the right thing.
The not so typical rug sizes are those that fit onto the floor space in the kids Bunkroom (double bunkbeds-small room!).
