Another Version of Autumn's Bounty

Rug hooking teacher Marilyn Bottjer stopped by on Sunday to pick up an Autumn's Bounty pattern.  One of her students, Mary Alenstein, had just finished hooking it and another student wanted to hook it, too.  Here is Mary's version -- she turned it into a pillow, which I think is a fabulous idea! I love the antique black background and the springtime feel of it.

The pattern was designed by my sister Barb (thimblefolk) for her friend Kathy Blake Parker.  Kathy hooked it in autumnal colors with a light background that is equally charming. (This is the only photo we have of it -- it is a little fuzzy.  Sorry.)

Thanks to Mary for hooking up such a beautiful rendition of Autumn's Bounty, and to Marilyn, for bringing it to my attention.
