Halloween Mats ~

I thought that I'd share a few of my Halloween mats.  My long time followers may remember these, but in the last year I've picked up many new followers.  {THANK YOU!}
A punch needle pumpkin, a design by Lori Brechlin.

A little hooked mat.

A small (about 4" x 6") crow that I hooked in 2005, the year I started hooking.  Back then I was REALLY slow and would spend hours hooking something this small.  I'm a little faster now, but some days, not much :)

This is a design taken from the cover of Country Living magazine a few years ago.  I believe it was meant to decorate the top of a cake. 

I purchased this rug on eBay in 2006.  It was hooked by Alison Maurer and is titled "Skeleton Flies".

That's it for my hooked and needle punched Halloween mats.  I've made more but given them away.
Today the weather feels like late fall.  Not too pleasant.  I hope the weather will be better tomorrow for the Spooky Pooch parade in Lakewood, OH.  Annie will be there and just maybe she can find her forever home!
Pug hugs :)


  1. Lauren, I love everyone of them. You have such talent!

  2. These are all adorable. Especially love the green pumpkin one!

  3. They are sweet. I love the green pumpkin one too. Have a fun weekend.

  4. Love your rugs! I just bought Lori's rug pattern, but I'll hook it instead of punch needle. I hope you take pics of the pooch parade. I can't wait to see the costumes!

  5. Those Halloween mats are delightful! The flying skeleton is a hoot!

    Good luck with Annie tomorrow. What will she be wearing?

  6. Lauren, I love them all! such works of art! Just started my first rug, yes I am very slow!! Probably will take me forever to finish it.. OLM

  7. Those are all great. I think i like the first one and the flying skeleton best.

  8. Loving these, Lauren...but, of course, I would! Haven't seen that Not Forgotten Farm design before and I LOVE it...hmmmm....another thing added to my dance card. Funny - I was meaning to do a post with some punched and hooked Halloween pieces - and just haven't pulled them all out yet. Story of my life. Wishing you good weather for the parade - and hope you get that picture thing figured out so we can share! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  9. Just beautiful!!
    Love all of them!!


  10. Enjoyed seeing your rugs! I like the punch hook one and my SIL gave me a pattern to do but I haven't tried it yet. Hoping I can figure out how to work it!!

  11. Hi Lauren~

    Love them all!!

    Enjoy your weekend~Becky

  12. All your Halloween rugs are cute. I have yet to hook one. JB
