An AMAZING Rug ~


 
HAPPY FRIDAY and the start of a 3 day weekend for me.  No big plans, but an extra day off does the heart good.
 
I must share this amazing rug.  I wish I had a better picture and some close up shots.  This is Gail's first completed rug.  It is her own design and her hooking is absolute perfection.  It is perfectly flat and has not yet been steamed.  Every loop is the same height.  I'm guessing it was hooked in a 4 and a 6 cut.  Just breathtaking.  This gal is one fine hooker :)
 

I received this sweet heart from Julia in South Carolina.  I have made so many friendships because of this blog.  It is hanging in my hooking room where I can admire it daily.

 
Beautiful stitches.  Thanks so much Julia ~ for this heart and for your friendship.


I have no braided edge to share with you.  I got the wool strips braided, but made an error in joining the ends of the braid in to a circle.  Teacher Sue is coming to my rescue and is going to fix it for me.  By the time the error was discovered, it was already 8:30 and I still had an hour drive home.  Me thinks you will need to find a You Tube video because there is no way I can 'splain it to you.  So sorry :(
 
Just a reminder that there are still a couple more days to enter my give-away.
 
Thanks so much for stopping by. 
Pug hugs :)
Lauren

Beautiful heart given to a woman with a big heart. My first hooked project never looked that good, she's going to produce a lot of magnificent rugs and bet we will see her in Celebrations one day soon.

Can't remember if I signed up for your giveaway in the other post or not but will go back and do so now to be sure.

What a beautiful rug! And that heart is so very, very pretty. I love the stitching. I'm seeing a lot of amazing hearts out here in blogland and starting to get "heart fever". LOL I need to get going if I want to have one done before Valentine's Day.

Gail's first rug???? Incredible. And I adore the CQ heart. Lucky you. By the way, I can be the queen of sarcasm. I say it came from years as an ER and then Corrections nurse.

They are both beautiful. What talent for her first time out. Have been looking at hearts lately and if I do not get started soon, February 14th will be here and gone ... and I will once again be "a Day late and a $ short".

Enjoyed my visit ... Peace and Blessings to all, Barb
