a rughooker, draws on this historical folk tradition and creates
contemporary works that comment on issues today. She often includes the
figure of Judy in her work. In light of the pandemic, Judy takes an
important role, as Kenney notes: “Sometimes Judy, a character who often
appears in my rugs, will come in like a superhero to fix things. To try
in her way to make things right. Maybe she couldn't save the victims of
the pandemic, but she could do her best to ensure the victims are
remembered.” Learn more by visiting the gallery’s website. #acadiagallery #aloneatacadia #novascotia

lot of hookers in NS knew Linda Macdonald. She was a teacher, shop
owner and she saved the Bluenose Patterns. She past away suddenly a few
years ago and is missed.
This dancing rabbits pattern is a Bluenose Pattern I picked up at an auction her family had and
Judy just had to dance with these big bunnies...even though they look a tad angry.
Thinking of Linda..and when we can all can dance together again.

I have been thinking about Maud Lewis again....maybe as it is near Christmas, the season Maud loved. If you are on twitter, check out @LKenneyrugs as I am posting a few of my Maud rugs..reminding people that the film Maudie was not a documentary.
It is tricky when you base a movie on a true story.
There are many people alive today that are upset by Maudie...they knew Maud and Ev..and about the Poor Farm. They didn't like the sugarcoating that went on in the movie.
I am going to sign off for 2020.
I want to wish you a lovely holiday...and hang in there.
