Christmas Rugs

This Christmas rug makes me think of cookie cutters. I can't believe it's been five years since I made it - sure doesn't seem that long!


And this Nativity rug was designed by Nancy - several in our group worked on the same design one year and it was amazing to see how differently they all turn out! I don't like the donkey on my rug, and the other animals (a cow and a sheep) have had me stumped for a couple years now. I do like the way the border looks like a gilded frame. Sure would be nice to get this one done!

I have Cookies on the brain today too. Just finished some Cinnamon Oraments, your first rug reminds me of cookie cutters also.
