Last night I finally reached the halfway mark on this rug. It now measures 13″ wide and 11″ long, so the final size will be 13 X 22. The halfway mark runs right through the middle of the green flower. The borders have the double motif in the middle, which I showed in an earlier post.
I’m hoping I can move along a little faster for the second half. I started the rug just before my surgery and then really slowed down for about a month. About 4 months of actual stitching so far – an hour or so a day. I never keep track of how much time I spend on my rugs, usually just the number of weeks. This one is taking a long time compared to the other 7 rugs I’ve completed. I usually take 3-4 months for the whole rug.
