Oldie but Goodie!

I finally went into my old computer and got the picture of this rug. I guess I should take new pictures, this really doesn't show how nice the colors are. I used a lot of plaids and tweeds in this piece and a variety of blue shades for the background. I find that a lot of people cannot see some photos, they are too dark, or the colors are off. How does the photo look to you?

Her face and hands are a shade I hand dyed, I call ghastly green, but they do look gray on my screen. The rest of the colors look true to me, but some shades like the dress has what looks like splotches, since the camera tends to pick those out, but it is more blended.

The piece is 28 1/2 x 14" long and I am taking offers on this one. It was made in 2005 and never used on the floor. I did have it hanging on the wall for awhile, but it is in new condition. The pattern for this rug can be found in my spellbound booklet at ecrater. The piece is a one of a kind, this was made as a whimsical folk art piece. The pattern does not contain the saying.

Cute! The pic is a little dark on my monitor... and yes, the witches complexion is a bit on the grey side. I have yet to find the perfect way to take pics of a rug... I think it's just because the wool can be so many more colors than the camera can see...

Deb,
I enjoy that one. When did you say it was going up on eBay? I saw the two pillows but not this.

This rug is up for grabs, not on ebay yet.
I thought I would offer it it here first, so make an offer and it could be yours.
