Hooray…I think I have decided on my next mystery rug!!! 🙂
If it is the one I think I’ll do, it would have the theme of a Russian proverb, motifs adapted from some vintage public domain German designs with additions of Swedish and/or American folk art…!!!!
A more primitive design with more subdued colours.
Halloween Friends and Fun – edge
I thought you might be interested in seeing how I finished the edge of this rug. 🙂
I had a ball of variegated yarn (I’m not sure why I bought it…!!!!) and I thought that it would be a good edge for this rug since it adds another colour (colours) to the mix!!!!! lol
I folded the backing to the front of the rug and basted it in place with needle and thread. Then, I whipped over the fold all around the rug with the colours in the variegated wool just at random.
So here is the rug all finished except for my label on the back…AND a close-up of the edge. I think it works!!!!!
Happy Hooking! Sunnie 🙂
