A Day in the Country

For sure I know what a day in the country is like because that is where I live and it is peaceful.  But this is about a rug by that name which is still being worked on my frame and thought it was time for an update. This is a rug design by Mad Hen Prims.
Plus wanted to see how that tree on the right side looks with the color changes added in the trunk.  Seemed it needed a little variance so pulled some dyed wool from my stash to add to that provided in the kit. But wasn't sure how the color along the sides would look with the ground brown color against the tree.  Think it will be okay as I chose the darker side of the brown ground color to hook against the tree.  Say that fast three times.

Okay kiddies.... am sure there is an Acadian rug frame in my very near future.  Cindy, or rather Cindy's husband has communicated with me, answered some questions and am very pleased with his answers. There IS height adjustment.  So now need to find out the cost of shipping to me and will keep you all informed.  

Have a great evening.



  1. Looks good. I sure wish I could find a few minutes to find my hook ~ or bind my challenge rug.
    I looked up the frame from Cindy's site and it is a purdy good lookin' frame. Shipping was a bit ouchy! Keep us posted.
    Hugs :)

  2. Your rug is shaping up beautifully. You must be so please. I love those warm earthy colors.
    Poor Lauren has lots her hook. That girl is working too hard.
    Can you believe I worked on a puzzle for 6 hours. My husband helped me.It relaxes me but on the other hand all I hear is about the shooting in California. Prayers for those poor people. When are these shooting going to end?

  3. I've always liked the rug that you're working on. And yours looks great! And so excited to read that you're getting closer to purchasing a new frame. Can't wait to read your reviews.

  4. Oh, would love to see how you like this new frame ! Love the scalloped border on this rug.


Thanks for taking the time to visit and I always welcome comments.
