Bugging about rugs

So I've bought a latchpull rug canvas, and REALLY want to make something beautiful. BUT WHAT? I'd really like to play with the medium, doing something referencing the traditional aesthetics, but putting a contemporary an personal twist on them. And importantly, make it pretty. Some ideas I've been considering are:

a curb with some double yellow lines and a drain

brick path (maybe Wizard of Oz style?)

something more graphic using the pixel quality of the canvas

But I'm not there yet. Some inspiration has recently come from design-crisis

"Where's the library for men?"

First post of 2011! Yet again I've got out of the habit, and I could say it's because I've been busy, which I have, but that's not a good enough excuse. Slap on wrist for me!

Last night I went to The Women's Library with a friend, having read that their latest exhibition is about domestic crafts. Very relevant to my MA final project. I'd never been to the library before, and it was a treat. A lovely space, and the main exhibition was beautifully curated. In the foyer there was also an exciting display of artwork by ceramist and all round crafty Nicola Malkin, with very witty large versions of everyday items, like a massive teabag in amongst the books. The Hand Made Tales exhibition is on until April, and Nicola's Crafted Footnotes is on until March. Go see! (Click on blog post title to whiz to The Women's Library website)
