I saw a rug on ebay a few years ago...
wanted to buy it but really had to hook it
do you know what I mean? for me it's the hooking
anyway...the artist kindly drew me a pattern on linen
(this was her first one to sell)
I've started hooking it many times
nothing worked for me...
I was trying to reproduce her rug
I'm just determined to finish
or chuck the pattern in the trash
will be the last time
the linen backing has taken a beating
from all the reverse hooking
it's coming along okay...
nowhere near the original
I'm using up some less than favorite wool
in the background
border will be from leftover worms
so it's a true make do piece
original rug by Susan
puddleduck on ebay
(I think...my memory is a little fuzzy here)
a totally perfect rug in my eyes
suggests I add more black
it makes everything look gorgeous!!!
