Maud Lewis another Classic - Nova Scotian Style

Maud Lewis is an interesting story from Nova Scotia, Canada, an extremely poor and physically disabled lady with talent to spare. Many a fiber artist will hook patterns originally designed by Maud Lewis. A hooker friend was in to buy some basic blue as she ran out around the top corners, I was quite surprised and inspired by this piece right from the moment she laid it out on the table. There is something about Nova Scotian talent Maud Lewis to Deanne Fitzpatrick (who's shop is just up the road and I really must get in to visit). O O !! I almost forgot Marilyn B was the hooker of this rug.
