German Santa Claus

Well! I have not posted in quite some time, I see. However, I have been hooking away. I have hooked this charming little rug "German Santa Claus" by Sandra Hershey that I found in an older Rug Hooking Magazine. The beard was hooked first and then I added the wool roving.
I am also working on some more "Snow Folks" . . . I love making those. I found the free pattern for them in Jennifer Manuell's blog "Fish Eye Rugs". One was finished and given as a door prize at the Atlanta Dogwood Guild's Hook-In a few weeks ago. It was a fabulous hook-in, by the way!

I am also working on some patterns I bought at the hook-in from Kathie Meyers, owner of the Woolen Rooster in Sharpsburg, Ga. One is called "Eat Ham" by Kathie and the other is "Pumpkin Vine" by Anita White. Both are adorable! Hope to finish them really soon.
