MUSTARD HORSE RUG FINISHED

I CAN'T BELIEVE I DID THIS BUT I HOOKED THIS
RUG IN JUST 5 DAYS!
MOVE OVER RHONDA (MY GLORYSTARS! he he)
 IT MEASURES 22" X 31~1/2". A
PRETTY GOOD SIZED RUG. I DON'T REALLY HAVE BLUES
IN OUR BEDROOM BUT I NEEDED TO ADD ANOTHER COLOR
AND I HAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TURQUOISE BLUE IN
THE DOUBLE HORSE RUG OVER OUR BED SO DECIDED
TO ADD A BIT OF TURQUOISE TO THIS RUG BUT
IT'S REALLY MORE TOWARDS BLUE/GREEN IN
PERSON I THINK. I USED SEVERAL DIFFERENT MUSTARD'S
IN THE HORSE BUT OUTLINED IT IN ONE TEXTURED MUSTARD.
I'M PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS.


THIS IS WHERE I PLACED IT IN OUR BEDROOM.
JUST OVER FROM ZOE'S STEPS.

I MAY HOOK ONE MORE NEW RUG FOR THE LIVING ROOM
BEFORE I TAKE ALL NEW HOME PICS FOR MY PT SO IT
MAY BE A FEW WEEKS YET BUT DON'T GIVE UP ON ME!
I WILL GET THEM ON THERE FOR SURE THIS SPRING.
NOW I NEED TO GET BACK TO HAND~MADES FOR SALE
AND GIFTS FOR MY TWO BESTEST BUDDIES WHO
BOTH HAVE BIRTHDAYS THIS MONTH....KATHY AND JUDY!

HOPING YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Very nice prim rug--I love that the "ground" part of it reminds me of the "hit n' miss" style woven rugs my mom and dad used to weave! Really nice job!!--Jan

Move over Rhonda is right!! Yes I'm well aware of Rhonda's hooking, I sweat that girl never sleeps!!! Your rug is absolutely beautiful. I am currently in love with the colors orange and teal/aqua that you used. And I love horse rugs, never had a horse but I just love horse rugs. That one is a beauty!!! You do awesome work Lori.

Just 5 days? Holy Horse. Ha Ha. The rug looks beyond amazing. I love the mustard color. It just pops right out of the rug. How beautiful. I just love that you keep your own amazing creations and use them to decorate your lovely home with. Can't wait to see the new home pictures on your trail. -Steph-

Gee....I have a birthday this month too.... ;o) Seriously loving your new rug. Love those muddy earth tones you've used. I had to laugh - when I read "5 days," I thought - gee, Rhonda has her some competition. You two amaze me. I'd be on the 5-year plan I think. Looks perfect in your room.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
