Rugs Of The Day - March 11th


Jane Austin said "There is nothing like staying at home for real comfort."  Today's post honors a very comfortable rustic home...Give Ye Thanks, another pattern adaptation of Lori Brechlin's folk art.
Lori Rippey from Michigan hooked this rug.  Don't you love the toasty autumn colors?  Yum!
 Here's Susan Pilotto's version where more lovely fall colors abound.  I love the cabin...it looks like a fun place to live!
 I love how the blue sky plays with the brown colors in this version hooked by Debra Lloyd from Michigan.
Sue Clark from Missouri hooked this rug and my favorite part of this rug is the red roof on the cabin.  And that she hooked some "lights on" in her windows. (Look again at Debra's rug...she did the same thing...very cool, girls!).

I love, love, love the background of this one!!!  This rug was created by Kathy Simmons of Missouri.  I love the dot in the letter A, as well!  A nice quirky touch.

I hope these cozy cabins have inspired you to snuggle up in your favorite place at home and get comfortable with your favorite project this week-end!
