Pulled the last loop on "My House Sampler" this morning! She has been steamed and, fortunately, all the ripples did settle down so that she lies nice and flat. I've tucked the outer linen under for the pics if she appears bumpy.
I personalized the rug with our surname and the year we bought our home. It blends well with the grass and doesn't pop out at you, so your eyes see the entire rug at first glance, rather than one element.
The photos were taken with a flash so the mustard house appears a bit "electric", but in reality is more subdued.
A bird and a house... two of my favorites!
I am so glad that I stuck with it this time and finally finished this rug...feels great! Now, to get the edges whipped! Not looking forward to this task...at thirty by forty two inches this is a heavy rug!
Enjoy the day,
