Not sure why progress on this rug is taking so long. Could be Christmas shopping, maybe family business appointments taking me away from home. Oh, the leaves... let us not forget those which have used up hours of my time. And soon coming up are my annual physical appointments so surely want this rug done soon!
The pattern I'm working on is called "A Day in the Country" and designed by Tonya Robey. Here is what it looks like now. When the kit was purchased I requested not have the wool cut in strips. At that time I was hooking #8 strips. Now, as my hooking of the dark background continued wasn't sure there would be enough dyed black for the sky left since my strips were now #8.5 and uses a tad more wool.
I love the red scallop border and how it frames the piece.
Have a great evening everyone and so sorry I've been an absent blog poster.
