One of the series of latch hooks I want to do are based off some of my favorite books, especially the ones I read as a kid that have stuck by me all these years.  It’s going to be called “Hooked On Books”, and here’s the first entry.  I found this minimalist pic of Bilbo, Smaug and The Lonely Mountain and thought it would make a great rug, and I think I was right.  “The Hobbit” was one of the first “grown-up books” I read as a kid, and I read it a couple of times, but my memories of the book sometimes get mixed up with my memories of the kick-ass Rankin-Bass adaptation.  I need to revisit both of them one of these days.
