The Stolen Rugs have been Found

This news just in from Norma and Linda on the rugs that were stolen at a class they were teaching at a church in Ohio:

"Good News,

The rugs have been found. A young man walking his dog found them in a
plastic garbage bag along a bike trail. His dog was sniffing the bag and
he opened it up and discovered the rugs. He attends the church where the
rugs were taken from and had seen the flyers about the rugs. The rugs are in
good condition with the exception of a few leaves and a musty odor.

I want to thank everyone who helped to spread the word by sending my note
out to groups, adding it to blogs and websites. Please resend to those
same groups so everyone knows that the rugs have been found.
I heard from so many of you expressing your concern and that confirmed to
me the unique friendships that we have within the rug hooking community.

Again thanks to all and have a wonderful summer,"

Linda and Norma

I suspect the person who stole the rugs was not aware of the networking we hookers have and how he or she had no way to gain profit or use them because of the power of our bond.  I'm just very happy they are back home where they belong and betcha it will be the last time that person tries to steal a rug.

If you would like to view the original post and pictures of the rugs just captured it is in a previous blog.

Thanks for visiting.
