Working on the borders today! I’ll do a few more motifs and try to fill in the black background…then go back to the center!!! : ) As with the Bradley Primitive, I prefer to do backgrounds and borders as I go so I don’t have to do hours and hours of the same colour!!!! LOL
Hope you are having a pleasant day!! Happy Hooking!! Sunnie : )
~ ~ ~ ~ Extra…ABOUT Steaming a Finished Rug!! ~ ~ ~
Jennifer asked a good question about steaming a finished rug. I steam my rugs upstairs in the studio on the floor. It is carpeted with a low pile carpet. I put a couple of bath towels on the floor, steam the rug on the back and let it dry. Then on the front and let it dry (some rug hookers only steam the back!)
I use a wet hand towel and a dry hot iron and let the rug dry flat. After the rug dries a bit, I drag it over to a dry spot on the floor so that the carpet under my first steaming can dry out too. We don’t want the carpet to rot!!!
Some steam rugs on a kitchen counter or other surface that can take wetness and not be ruined. Or perhaps a table with a flannel-backed plastic tablecloth or a sheet of plexiglass. Does anyone have any other suggestions for Jennifer? Please let us know if you do!!!!
Happy Sunday!! Sunnie : )
