A New Little Christmas Rug

I finished hemming the Christmas mat that I've been hooking this week.  It is 8" X 14" and is hooked entirely with hand dyed wools.  The background is hooked with about six different blue wools, but for some reason it is looking a little purple on my monitor!  I've used a few snowflake buttons (they glisten like real snow) and a primitive star button for the tree top.  The "Christmas tree lights" are tiny freshwater pearls which had been drilled for beading.  Now I'm in the mood to do something Fall...I seem to have my seasons reversed!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Love it! My new rug stalled while I was weaving baskets for those hookers! Need to get back on it soon. ~Ann

    What a sweet little rug! Keep on hookin'.
    I love that you are blogging again. It's so good to hear from you!
    Pug hugs :)

  3. But you're so SMART to work on this rug now - so it'll be all ready to use when the holiday arrives! Such a small cute size - I bet it hooked up quickly!
