Rug Of The Day - July

Here is one more fabulous patriotic rug to celebrate the Holiday week-end!
Adapted from the artwork of Lori Brechlin/Notforgotten Farm
Hooked by Karen Rorick

It seems like just yesterday (but it was actually 2 years ago) that Karen and I worked on the color plan for the July rug at the rug camp in Manistee, Michigan.  Karen brought some of her own wool but I suggested that she hook the house with some over-dyed mustard wool that I had brought along to camp.  She wanted a light background so we really did not want to choose white for the house.  And since there are buntings hanging from all the front windows, I think the perfect compliment for the red, white, and blue is a gold (mustard) house! If you remember from an older post, I am very partial to the look of a mustard colored house.  In this rug, the house became the star of the show!

Don't you think it's genius that Lori created trees with flag branches?  It's so primitive and whimsical and so perfect for a playful patriotic rug!  Just another great design that is on my bucket list...but this one is definitely at the top.
