More rug hooking

Hi all;
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!

Hi again. :D Would have put this in an email, but you don't have it enabled, so I'll just answer you here. :) I just saw that you asked in a comment on my blog where I got the shamrock pattern. It probably came from a magazine. I'll see if I can run it down for you, but give me a while. :D It's so pretty here right now that I've been spending all of my time outside--and none in my sewing room. :(
