Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I've begun to hook again and this is the rug that I just completed last night. I had a hard time deciding what colors to use for the snow people and decided to go with red and green and these colors worked well in the border as well. It was a fun rug to hook and hooked up pretty quickly. I started it about a week ago and finished last night. It is available as a pattern on linen (16 inches by 20 inches) for $42.00.

Hopefully in the next couple of days, I will finish up another rug, well it is a needle punch, that I will have available as a pattern. It is a sheep...just about my favorite thing to hook. It is pretty whimsical and not my typical sheep pattern. Although I punched it, it will be available as a rug pattern. Many times I'll punch a pattern as it is easier for me to color plan the rug by punching it. Plus I punched it during Thanksgiving holiday when we were traveling and it was easier to haul my punching supplies than my rug hooking supplies. Take Care, Maria
