Saturday’s get together at R.U.G. was a special event. The rugs entered in the Barn Project had been judged and hung and the entire group of 62 entries was on display. 40 of the rugs have been selected to tour for the next two years. Much to my dismay, when I got home, I didn’t have photos of all the entries, but enough to let you see the wide variety and skill of the hookers. Entries were received from all across Canada….from British Columbia to Newfoundland. Each rug was accompanied by a write up telling of the memories or significance evoked by that specific barn. Sadly I don’t have information on them all.
…originally a horse barn in British Columbia….no longer standing
…the barn on highway 6….a local landmark for over a hundred years
….from Calgary Alberta
…sheds (kilns) for drying tobacco in Southwestern Ontario…not longer used and falling down
I thought I could include all the photos I had in one blog entry….but there are just too many. I’ll continue with the rest next time.
