Oh Happy Days!!

Finally finished and in plenty of time before Christmas.  But think my son's rug was finished in July so finished his in record time.  Here is my grandson's Favorite Sports rug from the front.  It will still need steaming again in MHO.
And a photo of the back which shows the cotton binding and even the sleeve has been stitched on.  It is hard to tell where the sleeve is but there is a blue pen slid between the sleeve at the top to show where the yard stick or dowel will go if they choose to hang it.
Also notice the label stitched to the back.  That was a Facebook photo I stole the day this rug was being developed in my mind.  I wanted Zach to have a record of what he looked like when his grandma decided to hook this rug for him.

I have lots of HAPPY's..... am happy to have designed and hooked this for my grandson and VERY HAPPY it is done!!!!!  OH!!!!!!   And HAPPY it is done WAY before Christmas.

Hope you have a great evening.  Temps here going to rise again tomorrow to over 90 degrees Fahrenheit and high humidity.  So the 'fells like' will be over 100.  Hey Kim, would you want to come visit??? 

Am so looking forward to fall but am NOT looking forward to shoveling snow.  

Have a great evening.
