I just sat down and read the bulletin for my church. We are trying something new this year - themes to reflect upon each month. The theme for this month's daily reflection and journaling is "turning."
I keep seeing in my mind's eye the turning of a leaf as it floats to the ground and have begun to wonder about a rug that could be hooked each month as reflections on these themes. I'm thinking of 12 by 12 squares, one for each month. The rug could build over the year, hooked to bring to life visually each theme and my meditation on that theme.
I think I'm going to give this a try. Is anyone else interested in trying this too? If so, we could share our thoughts and our mats with each other each month, and do something fun jointly with the rugs when we are finished in a year. Maybe we could try and publish them together in Rug Hooking Magazine or ATHA Newsletter? Let me know if this is of interest to you, and if it is, let's talk more about it.
