There is something truly satisfying and relaxing about doing a repetitive task over and over—a rhythm develops. Your actions become a melody. At first your fingers may struggle with the notes, but after a while, they will have learned the tune.

Teresa Layman’s exquisite miniature knotted rug (it measures just 3¼ x 2¼ inches [8.3 x 5.7 cm]) is one of these types of pleasing projects. Rhythmic Colonial and French knots unite in a chorus of texture to form the pile on this miniature marvel of a rug, depicting a peaceful floral garden arrangement surrounded by a flutter of butterflies.
