With the nights getting cool.....

it won't be long before fall will be here, which is my favorite time of year. I just love all the fall colors from the wonderful colored pumpkins and gourds, to the deep rich color of bittersweet, and how about the awesome colors of the leaves on the trees. Using just the fall color palette for inspiration, you can create awesome rugs. While the colors of fall are awesome, it is the motifs from fall that I use most for my inspiration in Fall/Halloween themed rugs. In the next couple of posts, I'll show you some of my favorite Fall/Halloween rugs. This is one of my favorite rugs, Halloween Stroll. I designed this last fall. It is available on linen for $35 for 14 x 14 size and $45 for 20 x 20 size pattern.
A year ago, members of PRHG each designed a paper pattern for a fall/autumn book of patterns for use of the members of PRHG. Julie, Ebay seller, plumruncreek, hooked this rug that I designed. Isn't her rug just awesome? It is currently for sale on Ebay. If you click on this link it should take you there. It is so wonderful.....I may just have to bid on it myself. http://cgi.ebay.com/BLESTB-Primitive-Pumpkin-Folk-Art-Hooked-Rug-PRHG_W0QQitemZ300253095157QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item300253095157&_trkparms=72%3A552%7C39%3A1%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C240%3A1318&_trksid=p3911.c0.m14#ebayphotohosting

Maria, I was at a friends today and she had your Halloween stroll hooked and made into a pillow. It was the cutest!! I think our local store (Simply Fibers) has the pattern. If not I'll order directly from you. I must hook this!!!
You are such a talented artist. Keep the patterns coming!!
