Mission Accomplished

I did it!  I pulled the last loops on Zach's Favorite Sports Rug!!!!!  
Must say the blue wool was a close call and had it not been for the random adopted piece of wool from last year's generous giveaway at Cape May I'd be up the creek.  Well, guess I'd have made it work somehow.  This is all the blue that was left.
Even managed to separate out those few worms and put them in the stash baggies.  
Now what needs to be done is steam and bind Zach's rug.  But since working outside today in the 99 degree heat (felt like over 105 because of the 75% humidity) the steaming will wait.

However, am now finishing binding Simple Gifts, a design by Karen Kahle.  Should have that to show you tomorrow.

Had even more rain today and expecting more tonight.  Matter of fact weatherman says we are to get rain thru next Tuesday.  I don't have the wood or skills to build an ark but perhaps should consider buying a boat.

Stay cool....uh, and dry.



  1. I don't think you could have planned the blue any closer. No left overs. Love how the rug turned out.

    We could use some of your rain here in No. Ohio.

  2. Yay! Bet it sure feels good to have this all finished! He's going to love it!

  3. We're staying dry :(
    Congrats on finishing Zach's rug and on to binding Simple Gifts. Soon Ned will be in the done pile, too.
    Hugs :)

  4. Yeah You!!!! Boy, that was a close call.

  5. We are staying dry, its going to be 100 tomorrow. Zach's rug is fabulous and I'm quite certain he's going to love it, what a special gift! Besides that, its such a good feeling finishing a project!
    Take Care
