In the October/November issue of ATHA magazine (pp. 14-15), Melinda Smith's fabulous horned toad rug is featured. I have seen this rug in person and the pictures just don't do it justice. The markings are all hooked raised and the effect is "awesome" as my son would say (this is his new favorite word). Melinda has not even been hooking for a year and the rugs she is already creating are pieces of art. I hope to see more of her rugs in person at future Kirby Hooking Circles. Congratulations Melinda!
