Santa Fe Crossing (50 x 77)

Hooked by Elaine Cathcart

Hooked by Elaine Cathcart of Athens, Tennessee, a great hooker and friend. Each rug has a fun horse and center. The trees are very unusual and fun to do. They make the rug much more interesting. Great to see the different backgrounds around the horse. Note the inside border around Elaine’s rug – one area is blue and the rest in red. Sort as if she ran out of wool and used what she had. I LOVE that effect. See the From Barb page for more information on the hooking of Santa Fe Crossing.

Santa Fe Crossing (50 x 77)

Hooked by Georgia Adams

Hooked by Georgia Adams of Cowgill, Missouri. Definitely one of my favorite rugs. Oh where to start? Georgia’s horse makes you want to walk over and pet him. The golden trees behind him provide a wonderful glow to the center of the rug. Then on to the border – which is very soft and playful. I love the use of the reds in the border.
