This is my very close friend's rug. One of the ones she did early
on when we were learning to hook. It is a large rug 38x57.
Her cleaning lady was airing it out. and put her hand through it!
We both believe in putting rugs on the floor they are to be used not
rolled up and put away never to be used. She decided to put it in her bathroom.
and it rotted in that spot! We both were heart sick.
So I ran over and sewed a linen patch way around the broken part.
I was worried we would find more rot but it seems to be right in that spot.
I am going to work on it this weekend and try to get it fixed for her.
She is unable to do it herself right now as she is having a problem with her hands.
I will show a picture when I have it done.
The moral of the story is use your rugs just not in the bathroom!
