Another wonderful finished rug from Star of Texas

Linda Gartner sent me this picture of her completed rug from the Star of Texas Rug Camp. Isn't it wonderful? Her background is simply divine. The background was easy to do once she figured out what her base color was going to be (olive/gray color). After that, we chose five to six additional colors to hook with the background. She did a great job on this rug. Thanks for sharing the picture Linda!
Tomorrow I'm going to try my hand at designing a cross stitch pattern for my sil for Christmas. Wish me luck! Maria

After seeing this background hooked, I would love to do it with a cat or sheep. Wouldn't it be cool?

I will need all the help I can get with the cross stitch so keep those good thoughts coming. LOVE, love your garden rug. The knots on the rug are very intriguing and different. Very neat! I'm into trying different things with hooking right now and those knots are right up my alley. Maria
