A Visitor

Yesterday was hook-in day and I had a lovely surprise, Micheline Howitt came and brought along her daughter Micheline Mann.
You will enjoy looking at her site Mann Made Studios. There are many wonderful rugs to be seen. I appreciate her skilful use of light and dark, click on her name above and you can see for yourself.
She has recently restored a schoolhouse and you can see the amazing story of that transformation also.
Here is one of her rugs Lake and Pines. Notice the depth and shape of the shadows, look at her cloud play and water, now that's the way to give water life. She inspires me.


  1. Thank you for sharing Micheline Mann's work ~ inspiring, indeed!!!

  2. This rug in your post reminds me of those old paint by number kits - how interesting that she was able to get that effect with her rug hooking! Thanks for sharing it.

  3. How lovely; as a fairly new rug hooker it's really inspiring to see all of this beautiful work. How does one join the welcome mat?
