FINISHED RUG


HERE IS THE RUG I'VE BEEN
WORKING ON. IT'S BASED ON AN ANTIQUE
RUG. THE DATE IS TO COMMEMORATE
OUR ANNIVERSARY YEAR ONLY I
WANTED IT TO LOOK MORE ANTIQUE LIKE
 SO I PUT 1876 INSTEAD OF 1976.
ALSO I WANTED A RUG THAT WAS NOT
DIRECTIONAL. IT'S A SIMPLE RUG BUT
I DO LOVE IT. I USED MOSTLY AS IS WOOL IN
8, 8.5, 9 AND 9.5 CUTS. IT MEASURES
28" X 48".  I DREW THE RECTANGLE SIZE
I NEEDED TO FIT BESIDE THE BED AND THEN
JUST DREW THE HALF CIRCLES AND BRANCHES
WITH LEAVES FREEHAND.



NOW I'M WORKING ON A SAMPLER FOR OUR
BEDROOM THAT I AM MAKING UP TO
FIT A FRAME I HAVE ON HAND.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY.
WISHING YOU ALL A WONDERFUL DAY.
UNTIL NEXT TIME.....LORI

I love the rug. The design and colors are great. You must have been a a "child-bride" in 1976 :)

HomeSpunPrims said...

Yes, I guess I was Ann. I was not quite 19.

Looking at the first picture, I thought it was a tiny mat. WOW, looks wonderful where you placed it. Great size! Can't wait to see your next one... (I thought maybe it was the day 18 and year 76). Love the sentimental meaning.
