Purple Peeps (23 x 36)

Hooked by Kathy Kashcom

Hooked by Kathy Ashcom of Armagh, Pennsylvania. I love this rug. Kathy’s background was big time scary for her to hook. And the chickens were somewhat scary for her also. When Kathy saw this pattern she thought of Easter – and so the story began – the ending is just stupendous. A great color lesson in how to use the brighter wools and have a great rug. Kathy is part of the Woolley Fox Family – and hooray!
