A labour of ....

Who knows what but my blue rag rug is finally finished - hoorah. I decided to really move on with it as it has taken a long while and my wrists, thumbs, shoulders, neck etc, can just about manage to do this form of rag rugging using a locker hook.

This post here, is when I began it - only 2 years and 9 months. Mind you, I have only being doing it during the colder months as you just get far too hot having it on your knees during the warmer months. Even then, only every now and then as I have just not been in the mood for doing it. Ah well, here she blows:

Herewith a close up:
It has been stored rolled up so it might take a while for the creases to come out! It measures 40" long by 20" wide. Just the right size to put your feet onto on a cold morning. Welcome to Jayne via Bloglovin.

    1. Wasn't sure about the dark blue so used less of it. Overall though, it is okay.

  3. Love it, love it, love it! Just my colours and looks so cosy. Not sure I'd have the patience for over 2 years worth of project though!

    1. To be honest, it could have been done in 6 moths or less, just couldn't get around to finishing it!
