My little heart mat

I just finished this little heart mat...i really love the background color, it's called mushroom...then I used a lighter shade on the side borders, which is actually a deeper color than it shows on the photo...I just listed it for sale on Etsy.

I have a cat rug (inspired by Kelley  Belfast) on my frame that i left half done and started this one, the spirit just moved me to create the little heart one, so now i can finish the kitty one...i also have a small pattern that I bought from Mad Hen to get done, I'm feeling more in the mood to hook now that the drama is over as far as Robert's health, and he's feeling so much better and received a *atta boy* from the doctor last week for his blood sugar...

Anyway, just me here hoping for spring to arrive soon; I have been seeing a lot of robins for the past few weeks and I'm sure they're hoping for spring soon also...

I like the background. The mat came out very well. I like the swirl of color in the heart too! Glad that everyone is doing well.
Happy hooking,
Courtney

Lovely heart rug! :) Yup, Spring is near. We have noticed a hive of bees in our woods. I'll post about them on my blog soon. Aaahhhhhh... Spring! :)

Glad your Robert is doing better. Have a blessed day!

I love the combination of red with the mushroom backround! That's an adorable little mat!
Life is so much nicer when everyone's feeling better. So glad Robert is doing better...... take care of yourself too and Spring weather will soon make us all feel better!

Your work is just wonderful. I wish I had the time to take on a rug project. I've never hooked a rug but maybe one day....
