I thought that I would share this photo of my first rug hooking project. I took a class at my local quilt shop and bought this kit from the teacher. I found it so addictive to work on this. I finished this one a couple of years ago.
I think that I picked this particular project because my youngest son likes pumpkins so much; but, I also love the tiles around the border. I also really like the way that the pumpkin could be shaded and given a light source.
I finished this little rug that I was working on it before. this is another kit from the same instructor Loretta Moore. I just love the red in the cardinal and the way that he was holding the leaf in his mouth. I just finished putting the binding on the back this morning. Now I just have to find a place to hang it. It is now Spring technically so perhaps a winter wall hanging isn't very appropriate but I really think that it should be hung for a little bit before I change it to something else. What do you guys think??
I will be getting my new frame from Bee Creek Ltd. in April so I will be able to start my larger rug hooking kit then. I can't wait!
