Charles Dickens presents: J & D's Magical Hooked Rugs

These rugs are truly magical. J spends hours combing through thrift stores and yard sales to find wool that he can recycle for the many colors that he needs to hook these rugs. With help from D for the design – he spends his winters contemplating life, literature, art and Quaker concerns as he hooks these rugs while looking out over the winter landscape. For rug hooking and relaxing you may enjoy our 3 hours of alternating Vermont Wood Stove and fire when you don’t have your own to hook by! – www.youtube.com Learn breath relaxation/meditation – great instructions for well being, relieving stress, times when life is challenging and/or with major diseases: www.youtube.com and www.youtube.com
