Something to Crow About

Is the name of the new rug I've finished. I started it 3 to 4 weeks ago but was inspired to finish it for an online retreat. I'm offering it as a pattern for $38. It is 11 by 23 inches. I have to give credit to Lori Rippey as she told me to hook a black pumpkin. It would have never occurred to me to do this. This pattern would also look sweet with a white pumpkin as well.

I just returned from teaching at Star of Texas Rug camp in Fredericksburg, Texas. OH MY goodness, if you ever get a chance to attend this camp GO. The camp is wonderful. The founders, Cynthia Norwood and Katie Hartner, are just the best hostesses. They make the camp very special. The facilities were wonderful. My bed was so comfy! The town of Fredericksburg is a quaint little place with the sweetest shops. And the food....OH my, so good.
My students were awesome. Wait til you see some of the rugs they hooked. I'll feature them over the next week or so. Maria

Glad you enjoyed the camp, already heard that your students were thrilled with you, that was no surprise.
I have blk.pumpkins sitting in my foyer and on my porch and I love them, so way to go Lori. Met her and she is a doll.
