Just a Quickie ~


 
One week from today Thanksgiving will be over.  How is that possible???
 
Just wanted to pop in with a quick hello.  Saundra, no whining, but I've finished the hooking on my challenge rug.  I decided to stick with the wool I chose for the dog.  It is so much more subtle in person.  I'm not sure if I'm wild about him, but at this time I don't think I will change him.  
 
 
This is the wool I used, cut 90* from the stripe.  (Does that make sense to you?)  For his back, I used only the blue stripe.  The finished size is about 20 1/2" x 27 1/2".  I think I hooked this rug in about 3 1/2 weeks which is really fast for me.  I am happy to have the hooking done ~ now I just need to decide how I want to bind it.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

I'm not whining I'm crying since mine isn't done and you hooked yours faster than me. I think your rug looks nice and love that chicken!

Your challenge rug looks great and I agree with Carol, well balanced. Very pleasant to the eye. You really hooked that fast and did a super job. It feels good to get things done.

Love your rug, Lauren...I had to drop out last month...I have just too many things going on right now...couldn't even begin to think of a design...have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I love your rug! I sure wish mine was done . All the motifs are hooked and I am working on the background. What I am dreading is the border, Why oh why did I put a border in!

character. He's brindle! Julia

too cute!!!!!

newburyarts said...

looks great...very charming. needs a border...perhaps binding it with the striped wool will pull all of the colors
together...this will keep the eye centered on the motifs in
the middle. good luck!

I like the doggie Lauren and I haven't even found my hooks yet since the move. I'm missing it a lot so must make an effort this weekend to get those craft room boxes sorted. I'm amazed that you finished in 3 weeks and I really like your choice of colors.

I keep thinking I want to do hooked rugs too...thanks for the inspiration. Someday? Your rug is looking wonderful.

Peace to all and God Bless America (We need it)

I love it! It looks great! Happy Thanksgiving!

Very versatile wool that you can cut two different directions for two different looks. I actually like your dog just the way he is - very fun! Great rug and I know how good it feels to have it nearly done!
