Yippee... just finished pulling the last loop, steamed it and the rug is resting. It will be bound when my car needs an oil change, which is soon. A great way to work on a project to make good use of time.
Before starting the border on Flower Power, thought it best to finish the last couple blocks on this rug first. The colors don't really looked that washed out in person.
Want to point out those crazy blocks which have dark or light value changes within the blocks were in the original. I'm speaking of the really odd ones like the third block down on the right and a few others. Feels good to have this one done. The binding fabric has already been stitched on so will be an easy finish. I used a black, red and tan check cotton (doubled) for the binding fabric, you can see bits of it outside the rug.
On Flower Power I plan to whip the edges with wool yarn. I've been asked how the border will be done but while there is a 'plan' I'm not sure how it will go so don't want to say now.
Thank goodness the trees are on the ground. One of them has been sawed in large sections and the guy will work on the other tomorrow. He will bring a log 'splitter' to make it much easier for him and I don't mind the equipment in the yard. His wanting firewood for next year is saving me money and he doesn't have to pay for cords of wood to heat his home next year.
