Rug of the Day-January 5th

Today's rug is Smell My Feet (adapted from Lori Brechlin Folk Art by Spruce Ridge Studios (c) 2008
This little rug design always makes me smile when I see it!  It is the perfect pattern to try all kinds of embellishments and fun techniques.  Susan Walsdorf hooked the rug pictured above.  I love the glittery yarn used as a lush collar for the dress.  The skull and cross-bones buttons Susan added are just THE best!
Here is my version of the pattern, with sheep curls for hair, proddy accents, beading, and old black glass buttons  for the dress .
This rug pattern also has a companion piece called Trick or Treat.  I started hooking it at the end of October, but had to put it away due to other obligations.  Another UFO that I need to finish!

What a charming Halloween rug. I always like to see how different the rugs looks when someone uses their own creativity.

I have many UFO's too. I'm trying to finish some but spend too much time on Blogger and Rug Hooking Daily but having fun.

Happy New year. JB

Cute as the dickens. I remember seeing yours hooked the first year you taught at Cape May.
