I drew this up and hooked it over the weekend!
I really think it turned out great!
It is a pattern by Simple Stitches.

I must be ready for Spring!

This is what I have been up to, hooking flowers!!
I drew up this rug and just started hooking! I love how it turned out! I was going to stop with the lambs tongues, but wasn't up to finishing another one just yet,
so I squared it off and kept hooking.

The rug below had an outline drawn around the flowers and then it went on out to the edge of the rug, so I wanted to hook them with different wool but wanted little contrast. I could not get a good picture, because the picture makes it look like there is a bigger difference in the two wools than there really is.
It is more muted than it looks also.

I need to improve my picture taking I guess.
Everything I tried didn't make a difference!

Any way I still need to finish this rug
and think I am going to do cording covered with wool!

What is your favorite way to finish a rug?
Does it matter what size it is on how you finish?

1891 Hearts Hooked Rug

This rug evolved as I hooked it. I had not idea when I started it, that I was going to hook that border. I originally planned on hooking just two rows of black, but I thought that was too boring when I got to hooking it. The brown that I used for the background is my all time favorite medium value background. I will list it on ebay today sometime!
