About the image for the logo on this page: Oak Leaf Rug - 40" x 28" - hand dyed wool on monk's cloth - by Sandra Brown. This is one of a series of three "heroic" leaves and employs the agate-pattern style of rug hooking with hidden acorns (from which mighty oaks grow...) to explore both the technique of the craft and the narrative possibilities in nature, all within the framework of an easily recognizable natural object.
