    To Barbara’s family: I had the great pleasure of rug hooking with Barbara when I first started. We were in a class together. I marveled at the paintings she had done of beautiful pansies. She was rug hooking chair pads of the pansies. She was so talented and a lovely, beautiful woman. I am so glad I knew her.

      Thanks so much for your condolences. Rug hooking was such a passion and outlet for her artistic talents. It also introduced her to many lovely people she wouldn’t have otherwise met, like you.
