AHHHHHH, I loved Halloween as a child  and still do.It’s such a wonderful holiday for a hooked rug – so many great motifs – punkins, scarecrows, witches, crows, etc. but especialllllly Pumpkins!  Like many of you, I have hooked up a few Pumpkin rugs and am always tempted to hook up another. Here are some that I have had fun working on over the years… Have a great day and a super spooky evening!!!

Just a reminder our RVBB Vendor Day is this Thursday November 3. We will provide drinks and snacks – bring a mug and lunch and your $$$ and stock up on your hooking supplies. Burritts Rapids Community Hall on Grenville Street in Burritts Rapids.  Hope some of you can make it.

And now some more lovely rugs to share:
