We are close folks! This large rug, approximately 24" x 36", has been my hooking project for a year and I am so close to finishing it. I found this Claire Murray kit at a thrift store last year for a fraction of what I would have had to pay for it had I ordered from her store. This was only my third hooked project and my first done with wool yarn. I made a few mistakes, ok, several mistakes but I am happy with the finished look and so they will remain. The rug has been steamed and is ready for me to stitch on the binding and turn the edges. It will get a place of honor next to our bed where I'll enjoy it every time I walk through the bedroom.
We have a good friend that has an amazing green thumb. He likes Primrose plants and they grow so well for him. When I look at this rug I think about my good friend Don and all of my wonderful memories that he has been a part of.
I have a little smaller piece that will go on the frame next. I have lots of yarn leftover from the rug above so I may as well use it up. It does no one any good sitting in a tub in my closet.
