Theda's Rug

Several months ago one of the members of our hooking group unexpectedly lost her husband.  She had faced other losses in her family that had been devastating prior to losing Dan, but has been an inspiration to all of us.  Her faith has sustained her during these difficult times and she lives the word "Hope".

In memory of Dan, we decided to hook a very special rug for Theda.  One of our members designed it, including much symbolism.  The names of the children, Theda and Dan were hooked so that they showed on the back, but not the front.  The group members contributed financially and by hooking on the rug.

At this week's meeting we surprised Theda with "Love's Legacies".  There wasn't a dry eye in the room.


Take care,


  1. I didn't know about Theda's husband Jennie. Please let her know she will be in my prayers the next time you see her. I miss you all so much!
