Image- Hannah's Friends by Dixie Coyle

Hannah’s Friends (25 x 41)

Hooked by Dixie Coyle

A delightful old rug that has the flavor of “special” with the bald chicken the same size as the horse. A true example of the whimsy of the old rugs. The rug on the left was hooked by Dixie Coyle of Steamboat Springs, Colorado. I love everything about this — the odd coloration of the horse, the old whites of the chicken, the two corners that are not the same, and of course the wonderful background. This is definitely a rug with “no rules.” Twila Fairbanks, of Estes Park, Colorado, sent me the clipping of this rug. So a big thank you to Twila for finding this delightful rug.
