My Newest Rug

I just finished stitching down the edges of this little rug. It's a quilting design from a Lori Smith book that I have. All her applique patterns translate really well to rug hooking. I changed the colors up just a bit to make it my own and I really like it. My second finished rug of the new year! I ran out of red wool on the border when I was only half way around, so started mixing in some other pieces that were close. I like the variation that it gives.

What a wonderful rug, Gayle. And wouldn't our foremothers be happy to know that you made-do with what you had. Exactly what makes the old things we love so special!

That's a wonderful rug, Gayle. I like the idea of a rug being made from applique patterns. And that fantastic that you've gotten two rugs done this year!!
