This cheery rug is in celebration of the holidays and January, February and March. Inspired by a son who loves winter, and all things outdoors, I hooked this rug as a way to extend my own appreciation for snow, cold, and grey.

Hooked by hand in 100% wool, it features a snowy tree, cup of cocoa, snowflake, a sled, a mitten (hand-knit of course), and a snowman. The rich wool colors work for both the holidays and on into winter when red and green looks out-of-date.

Handmade Rag Rugs: I began making handmade rag rugs as a way to use up leftover and unloved fabric. As I studied rugmaking, it became a way to learn and preserve an art developed by women who made-do by repurposing clothes and curtains because they had no other materials available. I respect the artistry and talent of those rural women who lived a hard, duty-filled life and yet saw and created beauty every day. I aspire to the their skill and values using the same patchwork style in the same braiding, twinning, and hooking techniques.

Rag Rug Materials: the wool and cotton used in my rugs is not shiny new, purchased fabric. It is repurposed or rescued from the "unlovely" pile in fabric shops, unrequited stashes from estates, thrift shops, and auctions, and pieces purchased by crafters in enthusiasm and never finished.

About the Studio at Red Top Ranch: Red Top Ranch is the western Nebraska home of a small rural family, 3 rescued dogs and one fiber artist. At the heart of the Studio at Red Top Ranch is a love of beauty, nature, the great outdoors, individuality, the West, and winter. My scarves and rugs are made using the old-fashioned, traditional hand-crafting methods of my prairie artisan great grandmothers. I create by hand, one project at a time, combining natural materials with good design for beauty, durability, and individuality.
