Rug Of The Day - March 25th

Today's sweet little rug is The Stocking Was Hung, a Notforgotten Farm adaptation.  This pattern has always been one of my favorites because I love the darling little angel-doll!  There's just 9 months until Christmas (LOL!) so get your stocking prepared and in good order for the big night!

The first rug is hooked by Wendy Miller.  I call her "the queen of medium backgrounds" because she most often uses medium values in her background - not always easy to do since other similar color values will tend to "sink" or "fade" into them - and her rugs are always gorgeous.  She sewed a real skeleton key and jingle bell on her rug...nice touch!
Rebecca Erb hooked this version.  I love the turquoise stocking!  (Yes, it is her own Painted Cupboard Blue wool.)  I love using old faded turqouise hues in my rugs and try to add it whenever I can.  Turquoise is "friends" with so many other colors and shades, an all-around great addition to just about any color plan!

I still have to hook mine! I got it from you a few years ago at a show. Maybe this is the year I'll get it done! I love both Wendy and Rebecca's versions.

turquoise does tend to brighten up a lot of color plans-- really zings things up.
