A Boo Cat Pumpkin Rug

I just finished this rug this afternoon and listed it on Ebay. It is a Country Stitches by Brenda Gervais Design. It was a challenge to hook all those letters!! I like hooking lots of details though. I need to get another rug going tonight, I'm in the mood to hook.
I've stayed inside since it is hot and humid outside. In the mornings I go outside and get everything done when it is cooler. Have a great evening!


  1. I just love this!!! Beautiful! I bet those letters were a real challenge but you did a great job!

  2. Great rug. The light outline on the cat really makes him pop.

  3. What a great fall rug design, I love your color choices. I have to say "thank you", after seeing your beautiful rug it's given me the motivation I have been looking for to get my hook moving!

    Very nice!
    I think I've forgotten what my hook looks like!
    Doing yard work in this heat and humidity is definitely a challenge! I just wish we'd get some much needed rain.
    Pug hugs :)

  5. Great job. Hope it brings you big $$$. I've heard to hook the letters, pull then out, then rehook them to make them stand out more!?!

  6. I just love the wool you use for the background! do you use one wool or several mixed? You do beautiful rugs, wish mine were half as good!

  7. I used a dark plaid for the background.
    I hook the letters and then after I get the rug done I pull the letters out and rehook. I use a no. 6.
