New Rug Designs on a Cloudy, Cool day...

perhaps down right chilly is a better way to describe our weather today.
perfect for staying indoors and putting the final touches on my newest rug designs.
Red-Winged Blackbirds is in the finishing phase...
Binding rugs is my way of winding down in the evening;)

Inspiration for my designs come from my backyard...and from antique furniture and accessories...especially 18th and early 19th century painted chests and boxes.
Bee Runner and Compass Hearts are ready for linen. I tweak my sketches in Photoshop, then print out sections and tape them together for my full size pattern...

Now just to decide which to hook first?!?!
Updates to follow, so please stop back and visit!
Happy Weekend to YOU ~ Laurie
