On October 4, 2008 our own Kathleen Corrigan won a first prize Blue Ribbon for her Currier and Ives Floral hooked rug which she made in the 1950's as a stay-at-home mother, raising five young children! Way to go Kathleen!!!
Her daughter, Pat, holding the microphone, entered the rug on her behalf, in the 7th Annual Newtown Hooked Rug Show in Connecticut. Not only did she win the "favorite entry" category, but her rug will be featured on the 2009 postcard for next year's show.
And here is the Blue Ribbon winner up close.... MAGNIFICENT!
Here is Kathleen with her very first attempt at knitting an entrelac afghan. We are all so very proud and honored to have you as one of our Chicks!
Again, let me say....WAY TO GO KATHLEEN!!!
