More seasonal hooking

I started another Fall rug. It's The Star Rug Company pattern "Tumbling Pumpkins". I've wanted to hook this for awhile and recently saw it laying in a pile of patterns that Alice (A Day in the Life blog) was packing to take to a show. A quick email and she sent it to me instead! Yay

I started the bottom pumpkin and soon realized I may not have enough orange wool. I contemplated keeping going and crossing my fingers. But having learned this lesson the hard way, I saved this piece to use for matching.

I moved on to pumpkin #2. I'm still undecided how to hook his mouth. So for now I'm leaving it until I get a flash of inspiration.

This is such a fun pattern. I have to work tomorrow night so pumpkin 3 will have to wait.

  1. the one hooked is so cute. I know about running out.
    I have run out of back ground in the rug I have been hooking a long long long time. Now it bothers me I didn't mesure correctly.
    but I am forging on and it is what it is.

  2. Kim ~
    So far, so good! I just love Maria Barton's pattern. She has such a unique style that is just F-U-N!
    Sorry you have to work tomorrow night :(
    Hugs :o)

  3. oh I love pumpkins, I am so excited to see it come along you really have a talent Kim :))

  4. How can anyone not love this time of year? The decor is always fun and colorful and I think your rug will be so cute when it's done. Too bad you have to always gets in the way of life, don't you think?

  5. Wow! That looks great. Can't wait to see it finished.

    I love the fall colors and can't wait to see them here in Northern Utah. We are having cooler nights but the days are still too hot for me. Patience

    Have a great week Kim. Take care, Janet W

  6. Kim, your on a roll. You might have to go visit Deanne shop for more fall color wool. I'm looking forward to seeing the whole pumpkin rug.

    It was 8 degree C. this morning ( 46.4) F. It won't be long before there will be frost on the pumpkin...

    Sorry that you have to work tonight. Hopefully you'll find time to hook tomorrow.
    Hugs. JB

  7. Your rugs always look so nice. I love that orange piece of wool. I can't wait to see it. I think I know what tumbling pumpkins look like.
    I hope your Monday is nice and quiet. I know it never happens, but I do hope you do.

  8. Kim it is going to be darling! I have your Fall leaves on my new coffee table. Izzy, remember her, she destroyed the old coffee table!

  9. Oh it's going to be lovely! Love this time of year!

  10. Love #2! So fun. I love fall! And pumpkins! And the weather (you know, when it gets here...)

  11. This looks so cute. Can't wait to see it finished :)

  12. I love Maria's designs....The "confetti" pumpkin is adorable. As for that orange....well, I wouldn't say it was "too orange" as you said, but maybe not orange enough? Can't wait to see what you changed it out to.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
