Floral Runner Finished!!!

My Floral Runner is finished!

I'm very pleased with how it turned out. I decided I would see if I could hook an entire rug using only textured wool off the bolt. No hand dyed and no solids.

I started this rug in the fall sitting out on the screened porch looking at the fall colors and that became my inspiration for the colors in the rug. When I pulled from my stash it all just came together. I just happened to have the colors I need. I tend to buy a lot of the warmer tones rather than the cooler colors of blues and grays.


Now that I've hooked this rug I can't wait to design another floral rug, I already have some of the colors set aside.

I tried to post a larger image here but it's the best this set up will allow.
You should be able to click on it and view a larger version.

If anyone would like to purchase this design it is available on my website hand drawn on either Dorr's monk's cloth or Dorr's linen. The finished size is 12 1/2" x 52". It would look great on an old farm table...I wish I had one!

what an accomplishment! Your newly finished rug looks just beautiful. Isn't it a great feeling to have it done - and something new to look forward to?

I just love your rug. Will there be a pattern available and can it be done as rug yarn punch needle instead of using wool strips.
