Previously I told you that this rug was a great opportunity to use of woolie wormies, and it is. The funny thing is that the rabbit is hooked with probably all that exists of a tan and off white wool. I went thru my worm baskets and bags several times looking for just one or two more strips so I could finish the rabbit. Each trip rendered a couple more small strips and luckily my final search found two pieces which finished it off. But, had I not found any more of that same wool would have 'made do' by putting something else in. You know that old saying:
"Use it up, wear it out, make do or do without"
This is what the Big Dog Hollow looks like now. As mentioned in the previous post the design measures 27 1/2 x 34 and was a great pattern swap that Kathy of Briarwood Folk Art traded for one of my Frost Sheep designs.
Not sure what I'll do for the border. It would look great to do it like the original shown here but am sure it would be a pain filling in around all the circles along the sides of the curvature.
Thanks for dropping by.
What an awesome pattern!!!!!!!!ReplyDelete
