RUG FINISH


 
I FINISHED MY RUG LAST NIGHT AND STEAMED
IT BEFORE BED. I LOVE HOW THEY LOOK AFTER
STEAMING. SO SOFT AND PLIABLE.
ABOVE IS WITHOUT FLASH.
IT MEASURES 22" X 46".


 
ABOVE IS WITH THE FLASH SO YOU CAN
SEE THE VARIATIONS IN SHADING BETTER.
I USED SOME OF THE TREE BROWN IN THE
HORSE ON THE RIGHT AND LOVED THE ANTIQUE
LOOK OF IT SO I WENT BACK AND REVERSE
HOOKED A LITTLE ON THE HORSE ON
THE LEFT AS WELL.


 
THESE ARE THE WOOLS I USED.
 
I'M CONSIDERING SELLING A SMALL NUMBER
OF THIS PATTERN DRAWN ON LINEN BUT
I HAVE TO ORDER SOME LINEN SO I WILL
LET YOU KNOW IF/WHEN I HAVE SOME AVAILABLE.
 
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND.
UNTIL NEXT TIME....LORI

Lori ~
Your rug is wonderful and you hooked it so quickly, especially considering its size! I think selling it as a pattern is a wonderful idea.
Hugs :)

YUMMY colors Lori! Whenever I see a horse rug it makes me think of the one I hooked to commemorate our trip to Portugal several years ago - fun memories!

Lori,
I just LOVE your rug! It is a beautifully hooked and designed piece! The colors are wonderful... I really love the earthy neutral colors it calms and soothes the spirit!
I think you should sell the pattern too! It is perfect!
I hope you will take a pic of it displayed in your home!
