Another Tartan Rug


As I have previously posted, as we travel, I crochet tartan rugs. On completion, I donate them to a nursing home closest to where the rug was finished.

This year (actually December 2019) my latest rug was completed on Kangaroo Island. On one of the hottest days I have ever lived through, I deliver this to the Kingscote Hospital Nursing home. When I arrived and explained what I wanted to do, I was introduced to "sister" who took me down the hall to the nursing home. She said one of her patients had just complained about being cold, and would I like to give my rug to her personally.

Which I did

I explained to the patient "Val" that I was a grey nomad crocheting my way around Australia, she was so interested, and quite excited that she should be chosen for the latest rug. After a few more minutes chat, I departed - she started crying tears of happiness, and out in the hall way, Mr D was also crying!!!

So here it is.

While I know nothing about making a rug,I can appreciate the time and effort you must put in to your hobby. Good on you for sharing such a moving story. People like you are very few and far between. Regards Pete

Thanks PetenSue,  The rugs are easy to make, all you need to know is Double Crochet and single.... and be able to count. - Just ask Sue
