A Day Early ~

Wishing you all a Blessed Easter Holiday ~
I will be spending the day with family and happily cooking and baking tomorrow, 
hence the early wishes to you!

Hopefully I can get in a little hooking too, 
( between courses of ham, sweet potato casserole and ricotta pie :)

I have been visiting the beautiful rug hook-ings of Annie Hayes
and thought these were appropriate for today's post ~
so I'm sharing them with you to admire…

her rugs just sing to me ~ 
her seemingly-unplanned colorways and talented use of scrap wools is evident in her subjects…
and of course, my favorite subjects of hers are her dear little animals ~


"Cape Cod Rabbit"

her subjects take on the importance in her rugs ~
using tweeds, textures and as-is wools to bring them to life.


"Red Leaf Rabbit"

simple backgrounds
nothing' fancy…


"Tweet"


tiny details are made almost accidentally,
almost missed but look closely and you won't miss a thing :)


"Rabbit in the Grass"

...bright colors, naive designs
wonky-loops…
perfect to me ~


"Scarlet Tanager"


mis-proportions, and fun accents bring her rugs a child-like quality
that I admire greatly…



"Rabbit with Floating Flowers"

I could look at them for hours…..
(and do!)

"September Rabbit"

I hope you all get a chance to visit her website and be tickled by her

wishing you all a creative & peaceful weekend my Friends~

* Blessed be *
