Mary Rush's Rag Rugs

On a recent trip to the Smoky Mountain National Park and nearby Gatlinburg, TN, I met Mary Rush of "Hand Knotted Country Carpets" from Mountain Home, NC. Her demonstration and colorful craft fair booth caught my eye, especially the circular rug shown above. I love the soft colors.

Take a look at her website where she offers rug kits and a DVD showing how to knot a rug: http://www.handknottedcountrycarpets.com/.

Very pretty rugs. I like the colors in them. My mom had braided rugs when I was growing up and they remind me of them.

These remind me of the ones my grandma used to make when I was a child - only she used bread bags.
