I am married to my wonderful husband Rob and we have two fur kids named Molly and Olivia. I love all things primitive. I have a need for making primitive stuff, shopping for junktiques and hooking rugs.
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?
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!
