Finis x 3 ~

Three little mats hooked.  Three little mats bound :)  I hooked another version of Red House Wool Studio's Key to my Olde Heart.  You can find the pattern here.

Two of the mats even have labels!  I hate when I sew them on crooked (even though I carefully pin them on straight), so after taking this picture, I redid it.  This mat was bound with the wool I used for the background.

This mat was whipped with #8 cut worms, the colors used in the background.  It was hard to get a good picture.  I like the look, but find it hard on the hands to do.
New England Gravestone Urn by Old Scotties Primitives was whipped with wool yarn.  Another finish I like and much easier on the hands.

I'm very close to finishing my Tulip & Peony rug, pattern by Maggie Bonanomi.  Hopefully I will show that finish in my next post.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

You've been working overtime and accomplished a LOT. Love your hearts and key pieces. My labels never seen to get sewn on straight even tho I pin mine too. Frankly, a lot of time it is due to the uneven edge of the rug sometimes on mine.

I just learned a new hooking word ... 'whipped'. Sounds good to me and I love all of your rugs. The labels are sweet too. Do you make your own?
Great work with Folk Art Hugs, Barb

I like your finishes and I really like your edges. So perfect. Its easier on my hands to whip them with yarn too.
You do such nice rugs Lauren.

Wonderful rugs and finishes, perfect for Valentines.
I should try some mats, and maybe bind some old ones that have been sitting;)

What a neat finisher you are. Ihave yet to try the wool strip method. Yours looks quite tidy. I have seen others that were not so neat with the wool strips appearing twisted. Congrats on your finishes.
