Cat and mouse is finished. It's about 12 1/2" x 29". This was a fun one to hook and just my style ~ no detail :) And . . . AND . . . I've even sewn the binding on. Yeah! All that is left is the label and I'm SO FAR behind labeling my rugs . . . sigh. I though maybe I could get better color taking the rug outside and photographing it in the shade. Nope. Still not good color but I think the ones taken in the house were even worse. For the cat I probably used 8-10 dark wools. In person they are much more subtle.
The wool on the left is what was used for the mouse. I don't know the maker or the name, but the wool on the right is a Rebecca Erb called Phantom Trail, I believe. I need to get more of both for my stash. They are great wools when you want an old look but don't want to mix several wools.
Thanks so much for stopping by. Pug hugs :) Lauren
Welcome and thank you for stoppping by. I live just two blocks from beautiful Lake Erie. I am a rug hooker, needle puncher, and antique collector. I bought my first antique in 1983 and have not stopped since. I keep telling my boys that the antiques are their inheritance.
