Ahhhh....DONE! (And done is good...)

Finally done (well, almost - still have to steam it...for some reason, I hate that part....)
This is a rug I hooked several months ago - but just finally finished binding it.  My part of the jury is still out on it....not as primitive as I like, but I kinda liked that it reminds me of those great Victorian-era postcards, and I have a thing for little yellow chicks....  It's a pattern by Ginny Glover at Cabin Fever ("Spring Chicken"....)  Hand-dyed color plan by my friend Cathy at Red Barn Rugs.  Hmmm...Will have to see if it grows on me.  At least now I'm "free" to move on to another project....("Welcome Kitties".....based on an antique rug and MUCH more primitive....and larger :o!) OK...maybe after I finish that Christmas stocking I started...and work in an Easter punchneedle project or two....and...



Gee...Princess Lizzi doesn't seem too impressed.....

I think the rug is adorable! I like the flowers spilling out of the egg...you did a great job! Looking forward to seeing your new rug project! I just finished one up (well, except for the binding) and I can't wait to start the new one as well! Maybe it's the process that is so much fun!!

As a wonderful customer once said to me - "OH MY HECK!!!!!!!" Your rugs are fabulous! I shall just send you all my wool and let you hook a rug for me, LOL. As you've seen I've been hoarding wool with the good intentions of learning to hook. I even bought a fabric stripper a year ago but haven't tried it yet. My craft room is bursting at the seams with good intentions. :o/
