Rug Of The Day - March 4th

A very regal bird graces today's blog post.  This is Majestic, a pattern that is an adaptation from PJ Rankin-Hults folk art. Sue Russell from St. Joseph, Michigan hooked this beautiful design.  There are so many reasons why I love Sue's rug!  I love her color choices and the use of textured wool in the bird.  There is a lovely flow and movement in his graceful wings and tail feathers.  The side tabs pull the color from the bird out to the ends of the rug and gives the bird a lovely frame.   Truly Majestic!
