The rug of the day was hooked by Marsha Albrecht and it is Herb Angel, a pattern adapted from Lori Brechlin folk art by Spruce Ridge Studios (c)2007
Marsha often does fun, adventurous things with her rug hooking. When she hooked the lavender, she made little knots with her wool strips to form the buds. She also added bees to the rug which was a very creative idea all on its own, but take a look at the detail of a bee:
It looks like she did a little sculpting (or could it be yarn?) and added some fabric and a touch of netting to the wings. Another genius idea! It makes the bees look soft and very, very cool. Brilliant technique, Marsha!
