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

Maria, I just love your snowpeople patterns. I promise I'll buy one after the holidays. I think I'll hook Christmas stuff year round from the way I'm rushing the Christmas present hooking this year. I finished two Santa dolls today and will stuff them tomorrow. Glad you are hooking and blogging again too.

Good to see you back, hope you had a great Thanksgiving. And a new pattern, it is so neat. You must have a whole bunch of new ideas just waiting to hook up.

Okay, Miss Maria ~ you've be MIA for two months ~ where in the world are you? Up to your ears in work? In hooking? In designing? Just one little line from you and we'll know you're not buried under a Michigan snowdrift!!!
