Happy Halloween ~



~ ~ ~ Happy Halloween ~ ~ ~
 
Here are a few of my Halloween hooked rugs. 
 
Hooked last year, this is a pattern by Spruce Ridge Studios adapted from a drawing by Lori Brechlin.  It really is not as crooked as it appears.


This Jack was hooked at the ATHA biennial in Lancaster, PA in 2011, I believe.  I think this is the first time I ever used purple in a rug.  I am so NOT a purple person.  It was a class with Maria Barton of Star Rug Company.  What a delightful teacher.  If you ever have the opportunity, be sure to take a class with her.
 
 
Little mat I designed and hooked in 2006.
 
 
Heavens to Betsy style pumpkin hooked with handtorn strips.
 
 
Patchwork back.
 
 
Pattern by Lori Brechlin punched in 2007.  (I think I need to stain this a bit.)


Progress day one.  I decided to hook Ned.  I'm using 9's and 9 1/2's so it's progressing quickly.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
