"The Gatherer"

Yes, this is another one of the rugs that I started last year and now have moved into the finished pile. Can you give a WooHoo!

The closeup picture below gives you an idea of how many different colors of wool I use in my antique dark backgrounds. I have a big clear plastic bag full of dark worms and I just grab and hook. Not a lot of thought put into mixing the colors for the background except to always include lit bits of purple.  I just love adding purple to the background for that little spark of color.

This sweet little gather (do chicks gather, Lol?) is 7 x 10 and is available for $15 for the pattern plus $3.00 shipping. I can also make a small amount of kits for $25 plus shipping.  Thanks for stopping by, Maria

That's where my love of purple in a rug comes from Saundra! Funny how many hookers she has influenced!

Antique black is my favorite background - I'll have to remember to add purple next time I do that.

Gayle, it is wonderful in an antique background as well as dark green.
