~ Spring Again and another hooked project finished! ~

 A new day and it's Spring again!
yesterday we woke to snow, today is sunshine & warmer temps ~
crazy weather....

I hooked this rug yesterday while it snowed, then rained...
"Rest Thy Head"

it's made to be placed on the back of your chair,
in this case one of my old tattered wingbacks in our Keeping Room ~

I bound the edges with wool, that I whip-stitched on with Valdani pearl cotton.

early morning sunshine just peeking in...

Hooked up real fast in a #9 cut using my Sizzix cutter and die 

I used oatmeal wools for the background 
and a dark black-olive color wool for the lettering... 
then I just used scrap worms for the border ~

you could hook yours using whatever color wools you prefer 
for your warm, comfortable home decor ~
and even finish it into a large stuffed pillow!

I want to thank my dear friend Joan for the idea to design and hook this one ~
she has an antique sampler that is displayed on the back of her chair in her dining room,
and suggested it would make for a great way to display a hooked mat ~
I agree.
