Would you believe that this is the 50th day I’ve spent on this rug? I’m coming close to the finish line!!!! : ) In some ways, it seems like I’ve been working on it for a long time. But in other ways, it seems like a short time for a rug this size. As you can see, the new motifs I’ve worked on today are the flowers in the smoky blue background at the bottom of the picture…the blue one, the yellow one and the lavender one outlined with pink.
Another quick view…new motifs are on the left as you face the rug.
It still doesn’t seem like it has been 50 days of work on this rug!! Of course, some days I was only able to get a small amount done…perhaps a few rows of the border. For a rug this size, I think it goes quite quickly! LOL Happily for me, I didn’t feel I had to do the motifs EXACTLY the same, in fact the motifs gave me the option of sticking in odds and ends of wools like I usually do on my rugs!!! : )
I am thankful to those of you who have been so encouraging and inspired me to continue on this project! : ) I appreciate all of the comments and have been blessed by the visitors who have enjoyed this rug right along with me. I’ve been asked if I am going to do another rug and keep the “in progress” posts…and, goofy individual that I am (!!!)…I’m actually thinking about it!!!!! LOL
But I must finish this one first!!!!! : )
