Well, YaHoo! I finally finished the rug for our entryway. The above is the only photo I took sans cats. The rug quickly became a favorite spot….
Ellis was the first to discover the new flooring, but he was soon joined by Otis….
Ellis is not yet ready to relinquish his territory and a mighty battle ensues….
After the fur settles, Oatbran enjoys his corner and then some.
Lilly came along shortly after Otis’ victory….
…and the fur continued to fly.
I’ve been thinking about taking all the paintings and globes down and just having simple white walls, but, now I don’t know… I think I kind of like this view.
Anyway, on to the next weekend-hooking-project.
Between the grid I drew on the linen and the wrinkles from over two years of storage, it’s nearly impossible to see the design. Here’s the original rug from which I took my inspiration.
For some reason, which escapes me, I decided to make my rug shorter and wider than the original. However, I did draw the pattern just like the original so I’ll share that here. I think you can just grab the photo below and drag it to your desktop.
Here’s the pattern reversed, if you’d like to punch it.
When I drew up the design on linen two years ago, I made a small start on the rug.
I think I must have been feeling extremely ambitious, because all my strips are about 1/3 the width of my usual cuts….
…um….. yeah…. This is going to take me a loooonnnngggg time. Because I hand tear all my strips, now, I’ll be tearing wool for this rug and then hand cutting each strip into three narrow strips. That won’t be time-consuming, at all. Maybe I can recruit a helper… “Lilly? How about it? Will you lend me a paw?”
*sigh*… guess I’m on my own.
May you always be happy and healthy!
