Today's rug of the day is a perfect one for this time of year. This is Glad Tidings, a design adapted from Lori Brechlin Folk Art by Spruce Ridge Studios. I have two hooked samples to show you and they are both wonderful. The rug above is hooked by Leanne Sitler. So many things to love about this rug! The purple Santa, the unusual and spectacular background, and the way the gold lettering glows.
Dawn Walczak hooked this Glad Tidings rug. I love her use of sheep curls for Santa's beard and the embellishment of jingle bells (hat and wreath) and gold buttons on the jacket. And take a close look at her letters and you'll see how the G and T are hooked in a beautiful red and green Christmas plaid that matches Santa's jacket. What a wonderful way to tie everything together!
Nice job, Dawn and Leanne!
