Finally!! I spent 8 hours over the last few days working to complete this rug.
Here is the inspiration for the rug:
And here is my adaptation:
Designed and stitched by Jan Fitzpatrick
25 skeins of Silk & Ivory from Brown Paper Packages were used
About 90 hours to complete over 6 months
Final size is about 17 inches by 26 inches
I usually finish a rug in about 9-10 weeks, but with other things going on this year I wasn’t able to work on this as often as usual. I love the look of this rug and enjoyed working on it. The Fungus family of colors was just perfect for this. Now I’ll have to get with it and start working on the stitch diagrams so I can write instructions for this rug. Several people have asked for them.
I’ll take a few days to rest up. Then I’ll start on the design of the Chinese rug. I need to start deciding on motifs to use, etc.
