Autumn's Underfoot

After 6 chair pads and a large rug of veggies, I decided that I was ready to design and hook my first original rug. I started with a photo taken by my mom:

I did a line drawing, and started color planning: 

Then I ordered the yarn. I used two suppliers: Violet Jane Yarns, and Seal Harbor Yarns

Here's the full palette:

Then, I enlarged the line drawing, and transferred it to monk's cloth, using a homemade light table hack: 

Once transferred, I started hooking: 

And here's the finished rug, 32" x 55":
