Thank you for visiting my blog site. I own The Rug Hooking Store at Black Horse Antiques in Valley Nebraska. I have had the antique store for the last 31 years and the rug hooking portion of the store for the last 12 years. I specialize in hand-dyed wool and all supplies needed for rug hooking. There are over 750 patterns available in the store and online. I particularly love color planning rugs and will be happy to help you select wools for your latest project.

With only 2 days left before Halloween, there is still time to show off this cute little pumpkin rug. This is one of my own designs. I always think this might be a scene from the very pumpkin patch that Cinderella's fairy godmother selected that famous pumpkin turned golden carriage. Yes, I am fairly certain the pumpkin in the center was the lucky orange orb.
The background of this rug is Flow Blue, in 3 values. The pumpkins are 3 different oranges, 1 and 4 are the same color and 3 and 5 are the same. I pulled a very blacky green color for the stems and vines, which worked well against the medium sky value.
This is not a very big rug, approximately 10 X 28, it is a perfect size for a table runner. I am drawing this up for someone as a special order this week. If anyone else needs a pumpkiny project, let me know! I would be happy to draw one up for YOU!!!!
