Last spring I went to rug camp and took a class from Susan Quicksall. I got quite a bit of my project done in class, but haven't touched it since - nearly seven months! I pulled it out and started working on it again last week. The pattern is called Crazy Horse, but I had Susan customize the design and substitue flowers for the assorted animals.
And I'm doing this all because of Amy. Amy's Dusty Trail is working on this same design - but a bigger version - and that got me all inspired to pull mine out and get started on it again. She is doing the runner - which makes mine look tiny in comparison. Amy's on vacation right now, but I know she'd love to have you visit her blog to look at her rug and leave a comment.
One of my local friends, Nancy, is hooking a rug slightly reminiscent of these - I guess because of the horse in it - and lots of other motifs. These are such fun rugs to hook because there's so much going on - they never get boring!
