Yes, it is finally done.....well, a few more stitches to tack down the cotton binding on the back is all.
Oh, Elaine, I wanted to respond to you personally but since you are a NO-REPLY blogger the emails don't get to you. But yes, I have done all types of binding rugs, wool yarn whipping, wool strip whipping, the Betsy Reed primitive edge binding, wool covered cording edge with wool back, you name it and I've done it. If you use the search engine at the top left corner you can type in the words to see how I did those techniques. And, if you want to find out how to FIX the NO-REPLY Blogger problem click HERE. Thanks to "Anyone Can Decorate" for putting together such an easy visual to fix it.
Here's my Little Lambie Pie. She is wearing a wool collar with a bell so I can tell where she is.
I hooked this using mostly #8.5 and #9 wool strips but did try to use worms whenever and where ever I could in various sizes. The daffodil trumpets strips ranged from #8 to 3/4 - 1".
The sheep was hooked in a hand cut from a piece of delightful wool which was purchased from Gail Dufresne a few years ago. Even tho it would go thru the cutter I hand cut ensure the lumps would not be cut in the middle but in the ditch of the weave.
Have a fantastic evening everyone. If you are wondering why I never respond back to your wonderful , kind and welcomed comments, check to see if you are a NO-REPLY BLOGGER by clicking that link above.
