HERB ANGEL & A BARE NAKED LADY....

I love this rug!!! It is hooked by Kris Miller of Spruce Ridge Studios. The design is from Lori Brechlin, Notforgotten Farm, & adapted for hooking by Kris. I love the colors Kris has used...it is so soft. Kris has such a way with making colors just blend so beautifully! It is a nice mix of pale buttery yellows, browns, greens, and lavenders. It is definitely on my "to-do" list! For even more "eye candy" go to Kris' to see the rugs she has posted. She is on a mission to post a rug per day for the entire month of March! If that doesn't get your hooking fingers itching...nothing will!!

One of the gals from Thrums and Chums, Elaine, makes these gorgeous rug hooks. Elaine is a traditional rug hooker, using narrow cuts...and I mean narrow! Her finished rugs looks like oil paintings...they are just beautiful! Anyway...this rug hook is made from an antique manicure tool, sterling silver, from the "Art Noveau" era. Pssst....it is a naked lady...if you look close enough! The pic is kind of blurry..sorry! Beautiful, Elaine...just beautiful! Oh...and BTW....I am almost finished with my Maggie B. rug. As soon as I can..I will post pictures of it!

Oh my goodness - my rug, my rug!!! LOL Well, that's not my rug but it's the one that I bought from Kris that I hope to do soon. I'm glad that you posted a picture of it so that I can continue to drool over it until I can put hook to it! I wanted to go to Thrums and Chums, but couldn't make it. :o( I hope that I can in the following months, because just in class I met some great people.

Love that hook too. One of these days I'd love to try some of the finer rug hooking, but not until I get my skills refined a little more. I hope that I can meet you at one of the Thrums and Chums days!

That is a great rug. Tammy from the hook in did that rug too. Kris planned it for her. It turned out great.
