New Spring Hooked Rug Design!

Thank you for all your fun comments on my last post!  A mug of glug to chug on a cold winter's day and a giggle or two helped lighten the mood around here considerably!  It's always the best hearing from my friends from all over the place!  And welcome to all of my new blog readers!  I see many have hopped on board lately to see what's going on around the Orange Sink residence!

Speaking of hopping....

How about a new hooked rug pattern to start hooking and dreaming a little of Spring!  That little rabbit I was hooking turned into this sweet oval design!  I LOVE an oval-shaped rug!  Something so sweet about it to hang or sit atop an oval shaped paper mache' box!  I love mine hanging on my old antique cupboard in the studio!   
The rug measures 11 by 15 inches.
The paper pattern is full sized ready for you to transfer to your own backing!
The cost is $9.75 and .50 for postage.  
Look for the PayPal button in the upper left corner of the blog!
As always if you don't use Paypal and would like to send a check please email me for my address!

I would love to hear your comments about this new design!  
Hubby spotted some rabbit tracks in our front yard ( which is covered with at least 2 1/2 feet of snow right now) where the rabbit came scampering up to the high snowbank and then jumped down onto the driveway.  The banks are at least 5 feet high on each side of the drive.  I am just happy to know the rabbits are making it through the severe winter here.  

I  dedicate this rug to their hardiness and the hope they bring for Spring that is sure to come!
Not soon enough little wabbit....... for you and for me!!

  1. Oh Cathy, that rabbit is so darling. You come up with the cutest designs. I like the colors and it sure brings a big smile on my face.
    Wow, you have a lot of snow. We had a beautiful spring day here today and boy was it welcome.
    I think that the Bunny Wabbit will want a commission on that rug pattern.


  2. Dear Cathy,
    What a cute bunny rug! I hope it is a harbinger of spring. Oh, my, you have a lot of snow! When I feel sorry for myself over this bad winter, all I have to do is read of blog of somebody that lives up north!

  3. Evening Cathy, love the bunny rug, so adorable. Hopping it will be a lucky bunny and bring Spring too, Blessings Francine.

  4. Beautiful rug and I am loving the border !

  5. LOVE your adorable rabbit rug, Cathy!
    Hugs, Linda

  6. Can't imagine how the little critters have been able to survive this extreme winter weather.
    I really like the oval shape of the rug.
    Try to stay warm, spring is only...how many weeks away???

  7. Cathy,
    Such a sweet spring bunny rug! You come up with the best designs and I love the colors you used in this rug too. We have about as much snow as you I think. It seems like it has been a long winter with all the cold but spring is right around the corner now! I know you'll sell lots of your sweet pattern. Hugs, Lori

  10. I love your new rug design! I can’t wait for spring to come and decorate this lovely piece in our home. Hehe! I’m sure your customers in Etsy will start their orders as soon as possible. When is his rug available? I’ll wait for updates, Cathy! :)
