Home Tweet Home finished

Home Tweet Home (designed by Karen Kahle) is now finished.  Early on I'd decided to use a piece of jute to hold the birdhouse on the tree limb rather than hooking it in.  I just thought it might add a little interest to the piece.

Again I prewashed my cotton rug binding and it bled profusely so I used that dye to over dye a little more wool; turned out nice and had the same eggplant color as what I experimented with in an earlier post.

So now I'll go pull a few more loops on another Karen Kahle design..... Lavender Tea Cozy.  Keep checking back to see an 'in progress' report of that one ~ maybe tomorrow.


  1. Golly, you're on a KK roll! Beautiful job! I love her patterns. I have her Fruitlands and I'm saving it for when I'm a grown-up hooker!

  2. I love your rug. I love the jute idea. I just found you through courtney.
    I am going to follow along.

  3. Nice job and the jute hanger is a great touch!!
