I just pulled the last loop on the "Blossoms and Butterflies" rug. The last half hour of hooking was a little tense. The background color strips were getting dangerously low in the bag. With every new strip I pulled from the bag I thought ....."what if I run out.......I hate to pull out and re-adjust....I don't want to buy another piece for a few inches...." As the exposed linen space began to shrink, I started to think I just might make it.......
Whoopie.....I pulled the last loop and had 2 strips left about 6 inches long each. Can you believe it???
Sorry, but no completed picture yet. I'm still trying to decide on my finishing method. I like the idea of framing it but have never done that before. I would love to hear from any of you who have framed a rug before.
There is fairly high stakes involved here. A teeny tiny competition that I MUST win. As I mentioned before, this rug is going in a charity auction. Last year my friend Terri's husband donated one of his paintings and I donated a rug. My rug sold for more than his painting. (insert Cheer here) Ever since then we have had a hilarious rivalry. Terri says he is driving her crazy. LOL I would hate to lose my title!! Sooooo, the finishing method I choose is very important.
The pride and bragging rights for all hookers is at stake girls!!!!
