Re-invention of an old rug

  This is not a restoration, but a ‘re-invention’.  Restoration would mean the attempt to make it look like the original, but this is NOT the case here!

It seems that ‘mice’ attacked this old and loved rug in Granny Squares, owned by a friend.  The conundrum of time vs the desire to honour the original item came into the conversation, so here is the result.

I picked out the rodent-ravaged pieces, and using some squares from an abandoned project, inserted them into the item.  It now has a new chapter in its history, and can go back into use!

And best of all, creative satisfaction for the repairer!
