Ready to Hang

All hooked, steamed, bound and ready to hang.  The 7 in the date at the top isn't very clear so will work on that later.
This rug is going to hang in my bedroom so sewed a sleeve and inserted a yardstick with a saw-tooth hanger.  Unfortunately the top didn't fit as snugly to the wall as I'd have liked.  Will change the saw-tooth hanger closer to the top of the wood.   OR, maybe use a heavy duty stapler to staple a D ring to the yard stick.  That should make it more snug.

Here is what the binding on the back looks like.  I used a heavy cotton twill as the binding.
And a close up of the label.  It is hard to read but I copied and pasted a picture of the original design onto the label.  As I took creative license to change some of the motifs thought it might be nice to have reference to the original design.  It was designed by Bill Laraway for Woolley Fox
Nice to have this big honking thing done.

We're in for a monsoon later tonight, tomorrow and into Saturday.   Hope there isn't another flood here again.
