~*Rug Progress*~

Sewing, stitching, and hooking! I was actually able to squeeze a little of all of that into the weekend & oh was it good for the soul! The sewing and stitching were for a gift... so I can't share those with you yet... but I can share an update on my house rug. I gathered up an assortment of wools & made my Rigby smoke! Then, while watching the football game last night, I was able to hook the year & area around it.

My 'hope' is that the rug will look scrappy, olde, antique, make~do... get the idea? lol I plan on filling in the rest of the rug in a random, patchy sort of way...

I'll share more later... until then... Happy Craftin' and Warm smiles...



  1. You're making good progress. I absolutely love the colors. Will this be a gift or will you sell it?

  2. Looks great Betty....You are achieving the look you are after. Great Rug. Maria

  3. Betty ~
    Your rug is looking good and you're off to a great start making it look old and make-do!
    Pug hugs :)

  4. Betty,
    I love those colors, it really has to look of an antique.
    I love doing rugs with scraps and watching as they form patterns with the different shades.


  5. Oh that is so neat!! Betty you're the best!!

  6. That looks really nice Betty! Love the colors. I do think you're achieving that aged look!

  7. Your rug looks great! I've been wanting to learn how to make one because they're so pricey here. Do you know where I can find a tutorial or a starter kit?

    Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see it finished.

  8. love your rug. rug hooking is something i want to learn. good job!

  9. Just wonderful. The colors are very old and prim looking. It's gonna be a beauty.

  10. Your rug is coming along very nice. Can't wait to see.

  11. Lookin' really cozy, Betty! The color choices are just right!
