Dorothy was always so fun to hook with and did such beautiful colors. The rug one of my students bought at her estate sale and finished is a treasure in her bedroom. I’m sorry I can’t come Sat to see you and give you a hug Kristy!
You are in my thoughts and prayers. She was a beautiful lady inside and out.
