The Twelve Days of Christmas Rugs - Day 9

Dashing through the snow!
Design by Lori Brechlin/Notforgotten Farm adapted by Spruce Ridge Studios
Hooked by Julie Neumiller

Julie hooked this in a workshop I taught in Sebastapol, California in November 2015.  She changed the pattern just a bit to personalize it: she changed the donkey to a reindeer and put her family name in the word bubble.   She wanted  to create a rug to put under her Christmas tree and she had a vision for how she wanted this rug to look. This is another rug that hits it out of the ballpark!
Putting a halo around all the objects really makes this rug a winner because it gently lifts everything off the background. The tree literally glows!
