A gift that was a BIG surprise…

On Christmas, my dad gave me a rather large shirt box that was pretty heavy for it’s size. Inside, he tricked me, as the gift was a gift card to the book store. But the thing that made the box heavy?

Dad found this hooked rug in the garage and used it to make the box heavy. But I had to ask where he got it? “Oh”, he says, “I made that.” WAIT WHAT?

Yup. Apparently Dad was into rug hooking in the 70s! It’s a kit he said he made with my mom.

Because it lived in the garage I had to give it a good wash, but it came out great! Now I just need to figure out where to hang it. Who knew? Dad was a fiber artist!
