Hex and Frex is finished!

Hex and Frex, an adaptation of Lori Brechlin Folk Art by Spruce Ridge Studios/Kris Miller (c)2007

I finished Hex and Frex last week. I was watching the Red Wings win the Stanley Cup and pulled up the last loop as they were celebrating their win. This rug is hooked in all textures with a #8.5 cut throughout. I love everything about this rug! I love the dark colors and the sparks of turquoise that march around the border. I love the round little eyes of the cat on the left. Simple, yes, but it gives him a personality. I love the "straight-line hooking" on the body of the cat on the right, this gives the rug an "old" feeling.
My favorite color combo is the hex sign...love the combination of the maroon and dirty turquoise textures!
Thanks so much to Jayne Hester for her delicious color planning !
