I don't know what the weather is like in your neck of the woods but we woke up to ANOTHER gray and rainy day. I feel like I should be living in Seattle. We broke a record in 2011 for the wettest year ever. The ground hasn't frozen yet so we are dealing with ankle-deep mud. My woolly critters hate it.
I think that I have the perfect rug for today:
This is Rain Rain Go Away - adapted from Lori Brechlin folk art by Spruce Ridge Studios (2007)
I love this pattern and thought many times of hooking it for myself. I think I will definitely put this pattern on my bucket list for 2012. I particularly love the primary colors used in the ladies dresses. If you look closely, you will notice that the polka dots on the umbrellas correspond to the color of each lady's dress. Genius!
I took this picture at a workshop I taught at in St. Louis, Missouri in November 2008. Unfortunately, I thought I could rely on my memory as to who hooked this rug so I didn't write it down. Hah, who was I kidding?!? Of course I can't remember! Please leave me a comment if you know who hooked this.
