Caught Up!

Whoop de doo!!!!!  I'm all caught up with binding my far. But the Daffodil and Sheep Challenge rug isn't done yet so that would be next. 

This is what I've been working on the last couple days.   Finally the last Out of Hand Rug Hooking challenge rug has been bound and steamed. Hey, since I'm working on a new Out of Hand Challenge it is about time, don't ya think?  
Not only did the rug above get bound but these did too. This was an antique adaptation which started with just the horse from an antique rug.  But while hooking him (Brownie) thought he needed a friend.  So I have called this design Brownie and Bunny.
AND, I also stitched a label to the back of the rug of the original antique rug from which my horse shape was done. 
This horse mat replication was also finally bound over the last couple days.
and the label attached to it is a copy of the original.
Oh but it feels SO GOOD to be caught up.  But soon the newest challenge rug will be done and needed to be bound.  Plus I'm getting anxious to start on a rug for my dear grandson for Christmas.  

Uh... and then in May I'm going to a Barb Carrol rug camp in Ligonier.  Oh my, so much fun happinging here.


  1. Hmmm I have yet to experience the "caught up" feeling. Good for you.

  2. Congrats on being caught up...for the moment. I'm sure you are very close to being done with the Kelley challenge.
    LOVE those labels with the picture. I'm going to have to try that. I've done computer labels, but never with a picture. Thanks to your great instruction, I think I can do it.
    Hugs :)

  3. Good for you for being all caught up. The labels looks so professional and i love those tiny scallops around. I enlarged the photos for a closer look. Well done.Hugs,

  4. I think I need to go through my rugs and see what ones need binding and what ones need some fixes before I bind, time for me to finish the old ones. Love how all your rugs came out and the labels you made.


  5. So good to get caught up if your feeling a little down because you have no binding to do I can help you out wit a few of mine

  6. Yay for finishing - feels so good! Wish I could say I've been doing the same thing, but I'm actually trying to decide on what project to do next instead of completing older ones (sigh). Lucky you to go to Barb's again - it's on my bucket list.
