I Love This Rug!

The hooking on my Midnight Clear rug is completed!  I pressed it last night and now have to decide on a binding technique.  I love how a good steam press really brightens up the colors and makes your rug look a whole lot better.
This is hands-down one of my most favorite rugs I have ever hooked!  The color plan came together nicely and the rug was a pleasure to hook.  I was sad to pull up the last loop, knowing that it was over. 
Note the glow of a light in the upstairs window of the blue house...someone is trying to stay awake for Santa!

There's nothing on my frame right now but I can't feel too sorry for myself...I have lots of hooking projects waiting for me.  One project is my blog challenge (still have designer's block about that one!) and now there are new Notforgotten Farm patterns posted on my website!  Hmmm, which one should I choose??????
