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!:

Fabulous Flamingo
How can you not admire the grace, beauty and quirkiness of a flamingo. Their colors are mouth watering and vary from pale pinkish to dark coral. They are such a striking bird. What a fun rug this will be to hook with many choices in color ways and textures. They can handle some bling, too. Some color choices for the flamingo are Coral Dreams mixed with Caribbean Estate, Flamingo Dance with Blazing Sunset or Poppy Fields with Light Poppy Fields. I suggest three quarters yard , if using 2 colors use one half yard of the dominate color and one fat quarter of the accent color.

The first of my stair risers and by request. This is a great design to explore with color. Go neural on the rabbit and mix up happy colors in the background. You'll need at least 5 colors to make it work. See Jigsaw Rabbit for a color idea.
She Had To Fly
The story behind She Had to Fly is an overview of my life from an early stage in my company and a Celebration of my 15 years of designing. When I drew my first design it came at a time when there had been a series of crises. It was a time that was both sad, stressful and joyful. I was starting my very own rug hooking design business! Fast forward a few years and another crisis forced a huge change in my life that propelled me into leaving a 30 year marriage and moving. It was another time of stress, fear and joy and the freedom to fly with my dreams for my business. The idea for this design came after that transition and has been germinating for a few years. I chose this time to draw my design in honor of my Anniversary and journey of the last 15 years. It is full of symbols that have meaning to me and I will include them in a Legend for you. This design is all about facing your fears, challenges, going after what matters to you with both hope and faith in yourself..

Symbol Legend for She Had To Fly

Bee: aerodynamically the Bee cannot fly however, the Bee does not know this and flies anyway. A Bee can carry 300x itís weight, they work hard and still take time to smell the flowers. Birdcage: birds are a symbol of freedom and the birdcage symbolizes loss of freedom. This birdcages door is open, restoring freedom. Butterflies: Symbolize resurrection, endurance, change, hope and life, associated with our soul. Cattails: gifting a bouquet of cattails is wishig that person peace and prosperity. They also symbolize victory. Cherry Blossoms: represent the fragility and beauty of life as they are are almost overwhelmingly beautiful and their life is tragically short. A reminder to treasure life. Dragonfly: symbolic of light, transformation and personal growth, joy and abundance. . Frog: symbolic of healing and cleansing, rebirth, transition and transformation. Lotus Flower: they are spiritual awakening and rebirth. Siddhartha strew lotus blossoms as he walked. Magpie: they are good luck, long lasting fortune, intellect, creative expression and happiness. Salamander: they symbolize immortality, rebirth and passion, transformation, renewal and regeneration. Snail: the spiral of the snail represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth, the progress of life spiraling out and expanding.

Vintage Pumpkin Love
My favorite Vintage truck is filled with my Fall favorite of Pumpkins! They're such a happy sight to see in the Fall. You can hook this in a primitive, traditional or funky style. Imagine velvet pumpkins and funky yarn for the flower centers or silk flower centers. What about a chunky yarn for the pumpkin stems...lots of possibilities.. There are so many choices in pumpkin colors such as Tangerine Tango, Blooming Pumpkin, Joyful Orange, and my newest orange Tomato Spice. For the pumpkin flowers Marigold Fields or Golden Love would be pretty.
