This is the pillow 'wanna be' and measures 20x20. I'm looking forward to leaning back on it where I sit to hook. I'm using a variety of hand torn from 1" to 1/2" and some previously cut strips from my stash in smaller widths for certain areas.
And this is what the original antique rug looked like. Provenance is New York 1875 and original dimensions were 34 x 41 according to the auction house. Oh my but what I wouldn't give to make mine look like this beauty!!!!!!
The antique rug was much larger but I reduced it to two different sizes and chose to hook the 20 x 20 as a pillow.
I'm still slowly working on binding two other rugs but other projects have intervened so will just take one day at a time. But once they are done will have a celebration and show-n-tell.
Have a great evening everyone. Life is Good!! And oh my do I love those tee shirts to wear and spread the word. For some this is a tough time so a <smile> just might make a difference.
