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!
