A Happy Ending!

Word has been circulating that the aforementioned rugs that were stolen from a church where Norma Batastini was holding a workshop have been found! Apparently a man walking his dog discovered the rugs in a plastic bag, undamaged, along the side of a bike trail. He attends the church where the workshop was held and had seen the flyers about the stolen rugs.

I like to think that all the publicity within the rug hooking world about the theft caused the thief or thieves to reconsider what they did and discard the rugs, knowing that they'd never be able to sell them without getting caught. Whatever the motivation, it's great news, and I'm so happy Norma has her beautiful rugs back in her possession!

There's nothing quite like a happy ending, right?
