Rug of the Day-December 25th

Old Saint Nick- designed and hooked by 
Kris Miller (c) 2005
I love to hook Santa rugs!  Today's rug is another Santa; his beard hooked with roving from my friend's Lincoln sheep.  It has a hairy texture and also has a little glow to it.  I tried to make the background and border look like faded old ivory and gold colors from a vintage postcard.  This rug is hanging above the sofa in my studio/family room...along with another winter rug which I will show tomorrow.
Wishing you blessings of the Season!
