Product Description

Henrietta - Gone West
The original Henrietta drawn in 2003 has been the honoree of a Rug Show with 13 versions of her bringing chuckles and fun to many. I hooked her in 2004 and had a ball! Do you remember the feelings that hooking various rugs have brought you, I bet many of you do. In recent travels it came to me that she would look great in Cowboy Boots. I personally am on the search for a pair of special red cowboy boots and this may be where the idea came from .She can be quite fun to hook and you can add bling and texture to her delight . She would fabulous in a Black/White check or as I color planned. This is a dramatic look!:
