Well..almost three-quarters done. The yarn is variegated using all the same colors which are used in the rug. So thought it would give a nice edge to pull the colors together since there was no border. Will need another steaming after the whipping to smooth out the wave.
Since I took creative license to the rug design and cropped the tail from a 'Golden in the Garden' (by Nola Heidbreder) to make it a Rottweiler for my Ben, there is an empty space where the long tail would have curled. Wish now I'd drawn in a padula flower. I did hook a heart shape using the background wool but that doesn't show up.
Background wool is Irish Eyes from Heavens to Betsy. The yarn I've had for a while and gave a skein to my gal pal Deb and she used it to bind the edge of this rug.
This is the yarn used.
Had two dangerous dead trees cut and dropped yesterday. They are still in the yard but am putting out feelers for people who may heat with wood as this is already seasoned and is NOT pine. You can see how tall it was and my concern was that it would fall onto my neighbor's yard or on me during a windy day. Now it is down.
Another in the back yard and not as tall but it was dead inside and dangerous since I like to use my clothes line.
That's all I got for today. Hope everyone had a great weekend; weather is about to get more fall-like and I'm looking forward to it. Even tho it's October the mosquitoes have been insatiable. Am looking for the cold snap which gets rid of those and the pesky gnats.
