back to stitching

I finally feel like I'm making some progress with my Garden Flowers piece. I can still see it totally as rug. :-) The fence shows up better IRL but as usual my photo skills are not what they should be.

Here is my little heart rug. I should be done hooking tomorrow evening. Then I will pillowize it like I did my little house rug. :-) I won't be able to do that however until the weekend at the earliest - I need to go buy some wool yardage for the backing as well as some wool to bind the edges.


Thanks for all your kinds words yesterday regarding my agility weekend. Clancy and I both appreciate the support.

Both your pieces look wonderful Margie. I'm really impressed with how wonderful your rug is looking. I'm just having the darnest time getting my loops all even. But I do enjoy doing it!

Garden Flowers looks great ! I have this chart to stitch. Can't wait to start it now. Heart rug is looking great too! I forgot to comment about Clancy!! He is one cute Pug !!!

I'm just getting caught up with my blog reading. Poor Clancy to have such a clumsy Mom. :) (Love the photo of him. Looks like he is laughing at you. LOL) I'm sure the next trial will be better for you. I'll be keeping my toes crossed. (Need my fingers for stitching.)

Wow your rug is really looking good. I can't wait to see it finished. Love your wip too.

Your stitching is lovely. Yes you can see the fence in the pic.
Sorry about the agility - you'll make it back. Remember you were just coming back from being sick! Give yourself a break.

Finish that pillow! You'll feel better.

Happy Stitching!

Very nice on both pieces! I do think lots of pieces can be translated to either craft. I agree that your bunny piece would make a great rug!

Garden flowers is very sweet.

This little design (the cross stitched piece) is sooo adorable but of course I love bunnies.
