Hooked Flower Rug


I began learning how to rug hook with this rug in the mid 70's . The middle four flowers were hooked along with some grey. It got packed away and last year I found it and proceeded to hook away. The grey was gone so I found this nice green plaid and I like better than an all grey background. Below is how I finished the edging with a whip stitch.  A 40 year rug in the making!! (:

Oh, Linda, that's so pretty! The green was a great choice for a bordering. How nice to have it finished, doesn't matter how long. It's time has come, and it's still a lovely piece.

What a beautiful rug! Although it was a long time in the making, it is finished at last, and looking lovely.

Lovely hook rug pattern, this seems to be the year for many of us to pull out projects from the past to finish. I love the addition of the green.

That rug pattern is very pretty. I think it is wonderful that you are finishing a long term WIP. I hope you enjoy it.
