Product Description

Growing up and living the majority of my life in the country has influenced my life and what I design. I feel blessed with the views of lush foliage, pastoral landscapes and slower lifestyle. Here are designs that reflect my past and present views.

Vintage Pumpkin Love
I have combined 2 of my favorite things, Vintage trucks and Pumpkins! You can have so much fun hooking this rug and play with a variety of oranges in the pumpkins. It's rather large( 48 x 30) but can be done in larger cuts.

Size 48 in. x 30 in.

Grampa's Tractor
The first tractor my grandfather purchases was a 1936 Fordson manufactured by Ford in England & Ireland. The name switched to Ford in 1939. This tractor is still in my family. The tractor made the life of a farmer a little easier. Still a hard life and now more efficient. Although I don't own any I enjoy seeing vintage vehicles of all kinds.

Size: 36 in x 24 in.
Vintage Flower Power
I love Vintage Trucks and here I have filled my version with a butterfly bush, vines, flowers and butterflies. This design is representative of my idea of a lovely outing to the nursery in a cool truck! You could hook this in a primitive or traditional style or go fun and funky with textures in the flowers.

A Murder of Crows
A group of crows is called a "murder", hence the name. I find it fascinating to watch the birds in my backyard and especially crows. You can have a lot of fun with this rug! The border would be a great place to use up worms from your stash. I've dyed a piece just for the crows in this rug called "Just Crowing". Look in Hand Dyed Wool/Dark/Just Crowing.

Birdhouse Blues
A paradise for birds with glorious abundant sunflowers, berries, a beautiful water fountain for bathing and playing in with music to soothe the babies in their flower nests. Pattern on Linen FPBD2004140 Size:33in. x 39in.

Believe! A Farm Christmas
This sweet Victorian building was and still is on the farm where I grew up. It has had many uses over the years; a chicken coop, a storage building and playhouse by us among all the farm storage. Recently it has been home to a holstein calf who grew up to be a big boy who will gently slather your face with his big tongue if you let him, a few Jersey calves with their decadently long lashes and baby pigs all watched over by a pair of dogs.
