Was very lucky to find a pattern by Folk Art Landing on eBay for a song so purchased it even before seeing a finished sample. Monica Jones has designed numerous wonderful patterns and while it was not something I'd normally hook, was inspired by the design. And it was kinda small..ish.
After receiving the pattern I went in search for a photo of how Monica hooked it; here's the photo from her web site.
Most definitely I needed my trusty teacher Kris to help me at rug camp with MY colors. So took my 'go to' colors and we worked with them plus some of her wool.
This is what my rug looks like now. Still not sure if I'll make it into a BIG pillow or wall hanging in my living room.
Thanks Kris for your guidance and it is always fun to be in your class.
