Beginnings

California has been called a “state of mind.” My parents moved to California in 1954, driving a Nash sedan and hauling all their belongings and their three children in a U-Haul trailer (the kids actually rode in the car). We first settled in southern California and later moved further north. I’ve lived in many areas of the State and it is only recently that I have begun to consider myself a “California Girl.”

This fiber art challenge is a way to celebrate California and all the things I/we love about the State. I hope that other rug hookers and fiber enthusiasts will participate in the challenge and also share some stories or thoughts about California.

Future posts will include photos of finished postcards, tips for finishing small projects, embellishing, and adding lettering, plus the stories behind the postcards.
