“I Will Hold You Up” is the sweet sentiment of this folk art hooked rug. Colorful nautical buoys support the message in a playful, yet endearing fashion. I approached this rug with a bit of a whimsical flair, but there are so many different ways to interpret it. I haven’t even finished mine and I have three other color ways I want to try hooking it in next. And then I want to make a miniature needle punch embroidery version!
