Rug of the Day-January 13th

Today's rug of the day is Goat Hill, a design adapted from Lori Brechlin Folk Art by Spruce Ridge Studios (c) 2009
Even though this rug is not completed, I could not resist showing it.
This rug was being hooked by Maureen Lowrey.  She was my student at the Star of Texas rug camp in Fredericksburg this past September.  Maureen has a good color sense and brought some fabulous wool to work with.  First of all, I love the turquoise house!  And I especially love the soft coral pomegranates  at the top.  I think the combination of turquoise and coral are the best ever.  Don't you think the little goat is sweet?
Here's a closer look at the house.
And a closer look at one of the pomegranates.
I have to admit, this is another pattern on my bucket list...maybe I'll have to move it up to the top of the list!

Love the soft colors of the pomegranates. Also, love Marlenes fraktur birds. I looked at her blog ~ she really does very nice things!
