In a previous blog I wrote about the challenge which Jo-Anne Harris generously organized for the Yahoo Rug Hookers Group.  It was a challenge for anyone who desired, to design their own rug using the quilt patterns from the Dear Jane book written by Brenda Papadakis.  We were given a full year to accomplish the rug, and it could be any size, color, cut, etc. that each participant decided.  Often I would post updates of my rug as I progressed, and this is my finished rug.
Well now all those Sincerely Jane Challenge Rugs are in the latest issue of Rug Hooking Magazine with a great article by Jo-Anne, and comments about each rug written by the person who hooked their rug.  It is a very nice article and must admit the challenge was a lot of fun with plenty of time to complete the project.

For those of you who may not subscribe or do subscribe but haven't received your issue yet, this is the cover of the November/December 2012 issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.
And if you wish to read the teaser on the Sincerely Jane Challenge click on this RHM  link.  There is also a real cute free pattern insert of a Santa by Lucille Festa.  So if you don't subscribe, go out and pick up your copy or order it on-line thru the link provided above.
