Twenty Three Months Later ~

 
 
What Nots, an adaptation of an antique rug, pattern purchased from the Woolley Fox.  Started at a Heavens to Betsy retreat in July of 2012.  I finally pulled the last loop tonight.  The finished size is 23" x 41".  This is the largest rug I've hooked so far.  Oh, it feels good to finally have this one done.  There's no good reason why it wasn't done long ago . . . sigh.  {Of course it's not this washed out looking in person.}
 

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Woo Hoo! It's easy to lose steam when you're hooking a big rug, but always so great to have them finished. Love the pitcher!!

YAY! 23 months is nothing...I still have my big a** star rug waiting and that's been several years! And, quilt tops that are older than 23 months. Proud of you for getting it done...and it looks great! Good for you!

Way to go Lauren, I feel good with you...You got her done... It looks great. You've been hooking up a storm lately and can't have too many UFOs left.

Okay, now I guess I really should pull a couple of my unfinished rugs out and do something with them. Yours looks so good! I am getting excited!
