First, let me say this: I am not a "fast" rug hooker! But the middle of December came along and I wanted to start hooking something festive for the season...something that would definitely put me in the holiday spirit. I decided to start working on Cocoa & Cookies Alphabet Sampler, a charming pattern which is an adaptation of a note card by Lori Brechlin from Notforgotten Farm. I started hooking this just about 3 weeks ago and look how far I have gotten (remember, I'm not real fast)! The pattern is approximately 26" x 43.5" and I'm hooking it in #8.5 strips. The color plan literally fell into place. This is a really fun rug to hook! Don't you love the wonky little houses on the hill? And who knew that a snowman could have a cute little chin? The pattern is available through my website www.spruceridgestudios.com.
I'm flying out tomorrow to visit my sister in Nashville for a week so my rug will have to wait until I get back. I'll be anxious to finish it when I get home! I'll be sure to post a picture of the finished rug once the last loop is in place.
