Rug Of The Day-The Rev

The Reverend Gourdin Squashbotton, hooked by Louise Tietjen
Pattern adapted from Lori Brechlin folk art by Spruce Ridge Studios (c) 2013

Linen:  $66.00
32.25" x 26.5"
Such a great rug design with a delightfully funny name!  I like to call it "The Rev" for short.  Every time I see this pattern, it makes me smile.  The Rev is taking a walk with his cane in one hand and his candle in the other, but he looks a little worried.  I wonder what his concern might be.  Maybe the cat has scampered by and startled him, or maybe he's just afraid to walk in the dark.  Since The Rev has a pumpkin head (or squash head-you decide!), this could be displayed at Halloween or just a nice seasonal piece to leave out during the Fall months.
Louise chose some really beautiful primitive colors for her rug.  Lots of neutrals with a few pops of rust and blue. The background suggests nighttime without being too dark.  I love the way she marched the colors around the edge of the rug in the triangles.  It's just enough variation to tie everything all together.
