                                          My House Sampler   Lori Brechlin

I have been working on this rug for a very long time. I don't know why I can't get it finished....probably because I put it down for long periods of time and do other think? I like the colors...the pattern...I just can't get it done. Resolution...I will not hook anything new until this rug is finished.

I personalized the bottom space with our family name and the date we moved into our home. I'll be making time to pull some loops today...wish me luck.

                                                       Enjoy the day,


  1. I LOVE that pattern - and you really don't have TOO much more to do - I think you'll get it finished up quickly without any problem - and I look forward to seeing it! Good luck!

  2. Robyn,
    What a beautiful rug. But, I can see why you take's very intricate. I love what you've done so far. You're so close to finishing. I can't wait to see it all the way done. What a work of art!

  3. Robyn,
    I am not a rug hooker (but so hope to be someday) but so admire this art and talent and think this is simply STUNNING!! I will cheer you on from the sidelines and hope you enjoy your day today, blissfully working toward your goal!!
    Remember "The Little Engine That Could" and you WILL!!

  4. Thanks Gayle, Courtney and Julie for the encouraging and kind words! Didn't get to pull one loop yesterday...cleaned house instead:( ...somebody has to do it. You all have given me a much needed boost...I'll keep you up to date.
    Thanks for visiting and saying hello!

  5. Robyn ~
    Your rug is truly lovely!!! Keep posting your progress so we can cheer you on! I had the same problem with a Magdalena Briner rug. It took me forever but I finally finished it!
