Finally finished my Quinzhee rug.  It is based on a poem my daughter wrote when she was a teenager.  It was all about her experiences building and being in a quinzhee – a snow shelter often built in emergency situations or when winter camping by Canada’s northern Native Peoples.  The last line of the poem is “Warmth envelopes me”.

This rug is 19.5 x 25″.  It is hooked with mostly #6 cut wool, though there is also a lot of silk hand cut and yarn in it. Also some unspun fleece.  It is completely lined, with wool whipping on the edge, and a label and copy of the poem on the back.  The backing is primitive linen.  This rug is not for sale.
