I'm referring to the Great Granddaughter's Rug. Since I'm so close to the finish line considered waiting to post this but was anxious to show you the rug. Plus I've the Patriotic Pumpkins freebie design by Kelley that I'd like to work on.
The dimensions of Magdalena's rug measured 32 ½ x 43 ½. I drew mine out smaller and it measures 25 x 33 ½.
Have tried to stay true to Magdalena's color plan but using whatever colors of wool is here. Also tried using as much pre-cut strips from my worm bags as possible. A few times I've taken an #8.5 or #9 and cut in half just to use what is available. But sadly it doesn't appear many of those bags are reducing in size.
And....am making one hell of a mess as I progress.
In case you're wondering, the mat on the foot stool with the two birds (Two Old Crows) was designed and hooked by Tonya Robey in 2006. I was lucky enough to purchase that and a few more of her wonderful pieces.
Got the grass cut today and it was time because it hadn't been cut since prior to my leg surgery ~ which isn't healing fast enough for me. Doctor prescribed a surgical soap and antibiotic ointment prescription. I try to keep my leg elevated as much as possible.
Before cutting the grass I made sure to wear a bandage over the wound and wear long pants. Also don't want any more sun spots so wore long sleeves for the couple hours I was outside. Hey...it was hotter than hades under all those clothes ~ how did the folks manage when they were all bustled up and covered up to the neck back in the day???
Karen Kosmider, did you receive my response to your question this morning? Both tries to reply were bounced back to me. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know.
Have a great Sunday evening.
