Olde Hearts Border Progress

Must say that I've been under a lot of stress the last couple days and haven't accomplished as much as I'd hoped on either the Goat pre-binding or the Old Hearts border.  But will show you a little something.

Here are the wool pieces being used in the border.  Interesting that the flash went off but the colors are showing up more dark than they are in person.
Anyway, notice that larger piece of stripe wool in the center?  I am cutting that across so the outside edge will have both light and dark loops.  Plus I'm using it in the border.

And now a photo which shows up more bright and light than it really is.
The design is called Olde Hearts which is an antique adaptation offered by Woolley Fox.  The pattern comes in two sizes and I chose the smaller size.  However, I enlarged the border from the original design.

That dark area on the right corner needs to be replaced with more tan/light wool.  That I know for sure.  And when I show it to Barb (in two weeks) I'm going to tell her to pull out all the strips she thinks need to be replaced with something else.  

Time for Ben's dinner and am surprised he hasn't come in to tell me yet. Happy Saturday, happy hooking.



  1. Hi Saundra,
    Love those border colors and I know it is frustrating when the camera shows something different from what I see! I can imagine they are lighter so it works! I hope you can relax and enjoy your rugs, rather than be stressed! I know how hard that is when things don't go as planned!
    Enjoy your weekend, my friend!
    Heart Hugs~

  2. Every rug you hook is may favorite!!! I wish you lived closer :) I could learn so much about color from you.
    So happy you can go to Barb's.
    Hugs :)

  3. I'm loving your Olde Hearts rug & what you are doing with the border. Sometimes the border just is what makes the rug (except your inside area is pretty cool too)! I'm pulling wool & making choices, we leave a week from tomorrow for Barb's. I'm going to work on an antique adaptation. So excited to see Barb again & be back at The Woolley Fox with all the wool! We will stir up the bears for you!!
