Rug of the Day - December 26th

Wish Upon A Star - Adapted from PJ Rankin-Hults folk art by Spruce Ridge Studios (2005) and hooked by Kris Miller
This is the rug that hangs as a companion to Old Saint Nick on the wall above the sofa in my studio/family room.  I love this guy with his stocking knit cap and big basket full of stars.  To give the basket a woven look, I hooked a nubby textured wool vertically and the pattern in the wool did the work.  Just one of the many reasons why I love to hook with textures!
