I'M HOOKING A HUGE RUG!

USING AN ANTIQUE RUG FOR INSPIRATION.
I DID A NEEDLE PUNCH OF THIS IN NEUTRALS
A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO. NOW I AM HOOKING
A HUGE VERSION FOR OUR LIVING ROOM IN
REDS AND NEUTRALS. I'M USING 9.5 CUTS SO IT IS
GOING FAIRLY QUICKLY. IT TOOK ME 3 DAYS WORK
TO GET THIS MUCH DONE. I AM DOING SOME SPRING
CLEANING TODAY SO I PROBABLY WON'T WORK
ON IT AGAIN UNTIL TONIGHT. I'VE HAD IT DRAWN
ON LINEN FOR SEVERAL WEEKS SO IT FEELS GOOD TO
BE HOOKING ON IT. NOW BACK TO WORK!

UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Wow! This looks like it will be a lot of fun. I have never used 9.5 cuts.
I look forward to seeing the finished rug.

Lori,
What a wonderful huge rug! LOVE those colors! I just ordered a 9.5 blade for my cutter and can't wait to hook something with that size! I will be looking for more updates on your rug!!
Hook on!!
Hugs!

Gorgeous wools, definitely a beautiful piece.
I can't go past an 8 cut, too hard on my hands, but would love to do them in a larger cut, especially for the big ones I made and think they would wear better.

Oh, that is going to be wonderful. I started a punch needle version months ago, but it was put aside for a myriad of other projects.
Pug hugs :)
