1909 Horse Rugs

As promised, but a little late is Nada's rendition of 1909 Horse.  Hers is wonderful and just hope mine, when finally finished, will be as nice.
The delay making this post was because my digital camera couldn't  be located.  The iPad is here so could have used that but really needed to find my camera.  After doing 3 complete walks thru the house on both floors finally 'moved something' and there it was.

So here is a photo of the start on 1909 Horse.  Yup, I stitched the binding on already.  As there are no plans to make the pattern larger ~ it is already 33 x 40.  Plus the binding process will be so much easier and quicker since part of the task is already done.  That doubled cotton has the same beige, black and red which will be in my rug so will blend in with the back colors.
In case you're wondering..... I have bound my rugs with wool yarn whipping, wool strip whipping, cotton binding tape and using wool wrapped cording with wool binding.  Have done all types of binding except crochet and braided edge.  Oh....haven't done the Eaton edge either.

Happy hump day for all you worker bees out there.  Hope you enjoyed our record high temperatures today but things are about to change drastically.



  1. That's going to be a nice one.

  2. I like it! Record high? We didn't make it above freezing and my weather rock said it snowed another skiff. I am so ready for spring.

  3. Nada's rug is beautiful and I am sure yours will be, as well.
    I like the idea of adding binding before, I always roll mine and then whip stitch and it is not a great look.


  4. Going to be a fun one, saundra!!
    Love the mat!

    Glad u found ur camera, too,,,
    Its so annoying , when that happens,,,,
    Take care,,,

  5. I just hate when I lose something and waste so much time searching. I can just blame it on a senior thing (though I had the same problem when I was!).

  6. Hi Saundra,
    Happy you found your camera! I hate it when I lose things, too!! Love your binding on your new rug and know it will be beautiful, as always! We had our lowest temp yet this year....35 degrees! Some cool weather for Arizona!
    Have a great week!
    Heart Hugs~
