The origin of my little hooked scottie rug find (see the previous post) was a mystery until today! My Twitter friend, moxonsawyer (of course, I don't know her real name) sent me this website: http://www.cheticamphookedrugs.com/

Apparently this little island called Cape Breton in Nova Scotia has an enterprising population of rug hookers who formed a cottage industry to help supplement their income. They do beautiful work and the prices can't be beat! They tell me that my little rug was from 1972. According to their website, they have even been featured in O Magazine!

It's wonderful to have a group of friends who can answer almost any question you can come up with! I just wish I could meet you all!
