I used the Ecru from Christine's shop for the bricks and a light taupe plaid for the background of the floral garland. The rug is hooked in #6 cut and the colours were the ecru, Amethyst and Shamrock from Christine's dye books which I died myself.
The pattern was given to me by my stepson and his wife for a Christmas present. I chose these colours to correspond with the duvet, pillows and wall colour in my daughter's bedroom. The mat that was on the floor of her bedroom was made when I first started hooking in 1992. The pattern was drawn on burlap for me by Muriel Peveril and it had a teddy bear with five blocks in front of the bear and I put ANGELA in the blocks. My daughter is now 31 and I think the mat has had its day and we needed a more grown up version to take its place for when she comes home.
