A milestone at last! The right side of the rug is finally completed. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am to get this side done. The photo seems a little fuzzy and I don’t know why.
The canvas now faces this way on the rug stand. It’s time to get started on the next large motif. I’ll fill in the background on two of the motifs in the center band, add the brown separator band, and work on 6 rows of plain Mosaic stitches in Gazelle (the darkest rust) over the next couple of days. Then I’ll be able to actually start the large motif, outlining the areas and adding a little color if I have time. Guess I need to get back to work.
