The Twelve Days of Christmas Rugs - Day 4

Santa will soon be on his way!

Designed and hooked by Kris Miller 

I designed this rug for a workshop a few years ago and included several fun techniques:  sculpting (holly berries and pom pom on Santa's hat), hooking realistic primitive eyes, hooking with roving, and  binding a crochet edge with wool strips.  My inspiration for the design came from old Christmas postcards and of course, my love of sheep.

 One year when I was a kid, Santa left a sooty boot print on the hearth in front of our fireplace. That was all the proof I needed that Santa had really and truly visited our house sometime during the night.  I don't even remember what he left for us...I just remember that boot print!
