My Christmas rug
I haven't stretched my rug out for awhile to get a god look. It stays in the frame and I carry it back and forth from home to guild. Sometimes it lives in the car between excursions. I am always surprised how much is done, after working on small parts at a time.
We are at the "wlll I have enough background wool" stage. Which means, I need to hook in different spots a bit, so that if I have to add in a different wool, it will look like it has been in the whole border not just added in at the last minute , even if it is.
here are some photos of rugs from the Sauder Ohio rug week.
This display was from Kay Wilde in Kayesville Utah. I have a son and daughter in Utah, so, of course I was interested.
I loved this rug. The detail work was sensational. It looks like a photograph on a scrapbook page. And it meant something to the artist. How wonderful is that?
