Yup, I'm calling it officially finished....mission accomplished to have it all hooked and be bound on the way to Barb's (I'm a passenger). For those of you just catching this blog, I used #8 and #8.5 wool strips and LOTS of left over strips in whatever size. As I wanted a smaller rug drew this out myself and it measures 18 x 27.
I'm liking this rug much better after pulling out the light blue and the teal. Since taking classes with Barb it is now imperative for me to have a little purple in my rugs...because that is "what BARB would do". What's so ironic is that the very first class I had with Barb and she was helping me color plan she asked what I thought about purple. My answer was honest....I don't particularly care for that color. I think it was due to my ugly crochet afghan in various purples to go with the lavender walls I painted in a bedroom when I was early 20's. That afghan has long since vanished but Barb renewed my like for the color.
This is what it looked liked yesterday afternoon.
Believe it or not I've even cleaned up my woollie worms and separated them into the appropriate color bags and vacuumed up the wool room carpet.
Still lots more to do here before I leave ~ yard must be cut tomorrow! Even tho it needed to be cut yesterday it was too warm and today was hotter at a readin of 94* last time I looked. Tomorrow will be about 20* cooler with the cold front moving thru. And which also explains why my arthritis is giving me fits.
Have a great night everyone.
