I think that many of the folk art designs fit into every decor possible.
They are timeless.
Even a very modern and neutral design would be enriched by a
simple folk art design like this one.
And, a hand hooked pillow or rug would warm up any spot! 
We could all use a little warmth now and then. 
The nights are getting chilly!

Fall ... it's almost here ~ the golden yarrow in our garden
is beginning to turn and the clouds are sitting down
in the valleys of Pikes Peak ~ 
Sipping my coffee out on the porch a little later 
in the cool mornings ...
Thinking about dyeing some orange wool.
There is nothing like a pumpkin mat!
It doesn't have to be big ...
Here is a good example ~ with or without the flag.
A WSJ Design ~ go to
.... or draw your own!

A wool keeper never knows what will happen when playing
in their wool room ... today I was color planning a rug and
look what I found!
I had forgotten all about this fun project. 
One day I printed out some rug hooking words and took them
to a stamp making store. Then I dipped some tags in some stain -
let them dry and stamped them with my new rug hooking stamps....
You can do this too!
