Finally Finished My Rug

Thank-you all for your wonderful comments about my rug...
your making me blush...
Well....I finally finished this rug & have been meaning to take photos of it for some time now. It is a pattern designed by one of my favorite primitive artists...Lori Brechlin of "Notforgotten Farm" http://farmhousenotforgotten.blogspot.com/
The pattern is called " Give Ye Thanks" & I purchased it at "Spruce Ridge Studio" http://www.spruceridgestudios.com/notforgotten/lbrechlin.html . Its a biggy at 27.5" x 36" inches...& it took me a year to finish as I only worked at it sporadically. Every strip of wool is handcut so the rug has a really great texture & feel to it...something you just can't get with machine cut wool strips. The photo doesn't show the colors very well..it's a really warm cozy rug full of fall color...with touches of blue & green & I just love it!!! Lori has a wonderful talent for designing patterns....she trully has a primitve heart...
